Legend has a son

We have had howling gales today and some rain showers round lunchtime, my poor tomato plants have taken a real battering. This didn't put Little Miss Irraquoy off giving birth though; but we missed it!

We were helping out at a local dog show, Paul was microphone man again; he's developing a bit of a reputation as the man to do all the talking at shows; I'll leave him too it I hate having to do things like that.

Anyway before we left just before 1pm we did a check on the girls, no sign of anything occurring so off we went. On our return four hours later as we drove down our lane I yelled to Paul 'Why has Irraquoy got a baby', whilst undoing my seat belt and jumping out of an almost stationary car! I get told off for jumping off the quad when it's still moving; but needs must.

Trotting along side a very proud looking Little Miss Irraquoy was a very healthy and active white baby. LMI was only at 334 days which is early for us but he is a good weight at 8.17kg. He is from Legend of Spartacus and is already looking very impressive.

My brother who arrived this afternoon with my sister-in-law and niece managed to snap this picture for me this evening. They actually popped in to our house before they met us at the show and there is now some debate at to whether LMI was actually giving birth at the time. Colin reversed back down the road as he thought he could see a head poking out of one of the girls but Sarah said it was another one sat behind one standing - I'll let you decided who you think was right, as we'll never know!

All the excitement has obviously worn Faith out.....
