Babes and bulges

I've been on Kate watch today, she is now at 334 days and has been sat on her own on and off today.  She has been having huge bulges at the back end for some time now and I've been trying all day to get a photo  of her enormous bag of milk and big long full teats but she's not been playing ball.

I really thought she was going to have it this afternoon but she held off.  She is carrying one of Loki's first cria so it is extra exciting to see what he can produce, especially to an unpredictable grey.

The three little girls are growing fast, they spend most of the day playing and exploring but every now and again need to recharge the batteries.

Whilst I was trying to get a photo of Kate and her bulges I spotting Lady Godiva, nicknamed Smiler by James Dixon when he was shearing - you can see why.

Those little girls are lovely - I suppose it means I have all the boys coming here!
Smiler is a good name for Lady Godiva!!
