I didn't have long to wait!

Well after last nights blog of expectant ladies I didn't have long to wait for one of them to produce, and guess which one it was....... yep you guessed it the one with the shortest gestation, Elysian.

It was the one I was most excited about, Elysian who is from Nyetimber, who we bought at the Futurity and was mated to another fabulous grey Meon Valley Ardingly.  We were hoping for a grey girl to add to our list of ladies for our own grey champion Sunburst and the girl did us proud!!!!

One lovely little girl, 6.5kg and very down on her pasterns but happy, healthy, feeding from mum who is doing a great job, especially for a maiden.

Isn't she wonderful. 
It was quite funny, I thought we might have a birth today as we had a lady booked in for some husbandry training and when she came for her initial session things were well and truly interrupted with two births so she obviously has a knack, maybe a new career could be on the cards!
Strawberry Hill, our other grey Futurity purchase is very interested in the baby, both her and Beverley are going to enjoy baby sitting when Elysian begins to let her daughter out of her sight.
