Legend is a daddy!!!!!!

Another busy day the plan was to quickly go through the house again before our viewing this afternoon, however it was evident at breakfast that Veruschka had other idea's, despite the cold wind and the intermittent drizzle. As you can see Paul thought it was winter!

Veruschka didn't hang around and shortly after her first contraction things were on the move and the head and neck were out, one more push and the shoulders were out then Veruschka decided to lay down to finish off, she did the same thing with Tenzing last year.

This is Legend of Spartacus's first cria and wow is she; yes it's a girl, fabulous. Even before she was fully dried the quality was clear to see even for the untrained eye. Not only is she stunning she is the biggest cria we have ever had born here at 9.56kg!

We have now had cria from all three of our stud boys and we are very pleased with their results, it is great to see that you made the right decisions with your breeding program. I now can't wait to get our boys over the girls from our boys! I think I'm wishing my life away here.

I thought I would also share with you a photo of a fully dried Pearson, born yesterday evening, he is a lovely light fawn.
