Gabby makes us late with a new arrival

Another busy day, draws to a close. We were taking Hughie and Loki along with our knitwear range to Cambo Village Fair today. Thankfully I'd got everything ready yesterday as Gabby decided that today would be the day that she would give birth.

It's a good job she decided to birth this morning as her cria had one of it's legs sightly stuck and needed a little help. Once I had got the second leg in the right position Gabby popped her (yes its a girl) out.

She is a lovely dark fawn girl weighing a healthy 7.63kg. She was very early for Gabby, she usually prefers her cria well cooked with an average gestation of 355 (based on her previous five pregnancies), however this year she was only 340 days.

This latest cria is our last for this year from our brown stud Golden Guinea, he had blessed us with some lovely cria this year, we are very pleased with his results. Overall he has produced 3 boys and 3 girls for us and clients this year.

Her is Gabby with her new daughter, yet to be named. As you can see best friend Imala is still at her side. Imala has already resumed her baby sitting service for Gabby, hopefully she's just reminding herself of the ropes before she has her cria this year.

Congratulations Guinea...Guinea's sire, Legacy, has produced more girls than boys over the years but he has also had an even split for us and clients this year.
