Say cheese

I think today I'll let the photo's do the talking.  Chiquita here is at 323 days, and if she goes to the same sort of gestation as she did with Minimus last year she has over three weeks to go.  I'm slightly concerned about the size of this bulge, it certainly looks like it will be bigger than Minimus was!
Talking of Minimus, especially for Rosemary here he is.
To give you an idea of his actual size here he is with Lucia who is his foster mum.  She is only two months older than him and will be moved at the weekend to stop his suckling at her.

Another one for Rosemary, the girl you fell for was Meketaten, she is a fabulous brown girl from Golden Guinea. 
The final picture of the day is of Portamento, Molly's son.  He has certainly inherited his dad, Gianmarco's Masterpiece's fleece and vocals hence the name.  Portamento, meaning a continuous, unbroken glide from one note to the next that includes the pitches between.
As you can see the flies continue to be a pain, no matter where abouts in the country you are everyone seems to be complaining this year.  There must be a reason for it, I just wish I knew of something that would get rid of them once and for all.

Minimus is truly gorgeous!
And of course - Meketaten! She has really grown, I wouldn't have recognised her - Golden Guinea does produce lovely cria.
Thank you, Debbie - lovely to see those two again.

What a cheeky boy that Minimus is!...lovely photos.

We certainly have a lot more flies than we normally do...horrid...I even sprayed my own hair with fly repellent yesterday...didn't work!

Ah Minimus so so sweet and certainly is a mini one. Great photos.

That's funny, we have not had much problems with flies this year, normally I am running around with the fly stray all the time.

Probably spoke too soon, and will be invaded now!

Minimus is a wee cracker!
