Legs crossed

The weather has been a bit miserable here today so no chance for Paul to practice his washing pegging out! After yesterdays appalling attempt he definitely needs to try again.

Nefertiti (at 349 days) is still not wanting to part with her baby despite usually preferring a shorter gestation period. She is the mum of Sienna, our Brown Champion female from the Yorkshire Show last year, who is mated to Golden Guinea so we are really keen to see what she produces for us this year.

Veruschka who is carrying our first Legend of Spartacus baby is also on 349 days but the past two years she has gone over a year so I doubt this year will be any different, although she is starting to bag up.

I'll keep you posted.

Seems many girls going past their usual due dates this year. I heard it was due to a harsh winter. But where I am, we didn't have a harsh winter. Just later than usual cria for some reason.

I'm so impatient! Maybe it's a life lesson :)
