And then there were ten

This morning at breakfast I noticed that Imala's teats were enormous, I'd said to Paul yesterday that I thought she would have her baby today, I should have put some money on it!

Imala was our is she, isn't she, girl. The vet had scanned her empty at 42 days and 81 days but I thought different from the start. Then you may recall a couple of months ago, Hillary came over with her Pregtector machine and we both came to the conclusion that she was pregnant.

Well today she proved us right and gave birth to a very impressive Legend of Spartacus cria. A stunning white boy who looks just like the two other Legend cria we have had born in the last few weeks.

It was the fastest birth we have ever had, in under 2 minutes from the nose appearing to being on the ground. He is the lightest cria we have had born so far this year weighing in at 6.77kg, he looks bigger than that I think.
Next on the list is Chiquita, this one I am slightly worried about as she is a small girl and looks enormous!
