Sue and I were both at work today but Sue had a hunch when she left home that Fifi was up to something.
As a result I was ordered (in a very 'not ordering' sort of way only a beloved wife can get away with) to bunk off work for an hour mid morning to check on her.
I arrived home at 11.30 and Fifi was there next to a very dark little head wobbling about on the end of a dark little neck!
A quick investigation and a flurry of iodine spray revealed a lovely dark chocolate brown boy. Our smallest cria weighing in at 6.70kg. Small, but perfectly formed after having been baked for 346 days. He was soon up and suckling his way along Fifi until he found what he was looking for and I was back off to work wishing the hours away until I could return.
He has yet to be named, the naming committee are out at the local swimming pool at the moment, but I have been out with the hounds and the trusty Canon to get a few photographs.
He is another Lillyfield Jack of Spades cria and boy that big fellah has done well for us this year! Fifi is a Wiracocha's Dream girl and daughter of our oldest girl, Dee.
The little 'un was soon greeted by the big 'un, Rafiki, who was very eager to coax the little chap into some running around.
