Introducing Bridie

Our last cria of the year is going from strength to strength, although it is still quite early days for her we have decided to name her, well I say we, our great friend Gill Pearson chose her name.  Meet Bridie, which is Celtic meaning strong.
She is now gaining weight and feeding purely from mum which is fantastic to say only a week ago today when she was born she was clinging to life by a thread, had no suck reflex and couldn't even lift her head. 

She is still very wobbly on her legs and resembles a cria which is a few hours old however she is one determined little girl so we are positive.  She has been out enjoying the sunshine in the field with the rest of the herd.

Don't you just love cria introductions... 
Are you still in there? 
Here we have the oldest and the youngest cria of the year, they both share a dad in Legend of Spartacus and Bridie's grandma, Oonagh, is Leonidas's mum!
