What a weekend!

Wow, what a simply fantastic weekend, despite the best efforts of the weather gods to spoil things!
We threw a party yesterday lunchtime to celebrate out 20th anniversary and it was a great party. It finished just after midnight and as far as I am aware a cracking time was had by all. Good people, good food and just a few too many sherberts! Marvellous.

As if that wasn't good enough this morning Bobby decided to join the party by producing our first cria of the year. Shortly before 10am Sue noticed Bobby behaving oddly and I went out to check things out. The first thing I saw were two little feet and a nose, nostrils flapping! Pushing my hangover as far back as possible I watched and waited. Sure enough in textbook fashion Bobby popped out a beautiful little female cria. That is three in a row from Bobby, what a star!

She is, as yet unnamed, but weighed in at a healthy 9.75kilos and is a good strong cria. She is either a very dark brown or black, further investigations will be made tomorrow.

One thing is for sure though, she is exactly what we wanted. Female, either brown or black and healthy, and beautiful of course!

All in all a most memorable weekend!
Can I go and lie down now please?
