Who missed who more?

Having been back to Nottingham for my niece, Faith's 3rd birthday party yesterday I was keen to get into the field this morning to make sure Paul had looked after everyone correctly.

Everyone was pleased to see me, Oonagh got her full breakfast ration.  She refused to share a trough and has to eat from your hand or she'd rather go without and Paul won't always wait long enough for her to decide if she wants any or not and this can sometimes take her a while! 

The boys and yearlings were due a routine wormer so they were rounded up and injected and the summer fly cream was out again.  Everyone you speak to seems to be complaining about the increased number of flies this year - horrible things I really don't like them.

In theory we now have a little breather before the final four births are due which shouldn't be until the end of July, if everyone goes to their usual averages.  In the meantime I thought you might like so see this weeks new arrivals. 

Firstly born on Wednesday afternoon we have Seymour, who is a lovely solid black boy who this evening weighs a chunky 11.16kg.  If you look closely you can see his half sister Celestial in the background who is also solid black.
Then we have Veruschka's little man who has yet to be named.  I didn't manage to get a photo of him dry on Friday before I left for Paul to share with you all.
He has certainly inherited his dad's vocal chords!
