Little man update!

I'm back! I was struggling to keep my eyes open last night after a night in the shelter with zero kip hence Paul was on the blog job.

I'm pleased to report that all is well with LMI and her absolutely gorgeous son (who we have so far failed to agree on a name for!). He has the most appealing face and at a day old already has a very attractive fleece, the best of our cria this year.

He is very active and running round the field with his mum in hot pursuit. In fact all of the cria are happily playing with each other. Little Miss Irraquoy obviously has some very good milk as he is already back above his birth weight. I though you might like to see a couple of photos.

We have done some more matings and spit offs over the weekend, this morning Golden Guinea and Legend of Spartacus were having a competition to see who could last the longest and who could orgle the loudest. It was really funny, I could tell Guinea had finished but was refusing to give up until Legend stopped. Needless to say as soon as Legend stood up up within 5 second Guinea was also finished - boys eh!!

Hilarious story about the boys!

He is adorable. What a lovely colour. He has the longest legs! Well done on your night vigil. I had good hopes as he seemed to be keen to feed according to Paul's description, and eventually the mums catch on given the chance don't they?!!
