Golden Guinea has a daughter

This morning Nefertiti produced a lovely brown female cria from our brown herdsire Golden Guinea. It took her ten minutes from the first push to popping her out, I couldn't believe how quick she was.

The little girl, who has yet to be named was soon up and on her feet, in fact she was soon off running with poor Nefertiti running behind calling like mad. At one point she was trying to pass the afterbirth which was dangling between her legs and chasing after her new baby which was causing the afterbirth to swing and hit her legs which made her think she was being chased!

I am keeping a close eye on Nefertiti's teats at they are huge and I mean huge so I need to make sure the baby can manage to latch on.
Kate had the same issue as she had when Layla was born, she thought the baby was hers. All these brown babies are obviously confusing.
