At the moment I barely get the time to write a blog proclaiming another Patou birth before we go and have another one.
Yesterday was our first boy, a cracking looking dark brown Jack of Spades cria out of Poppy, today our own mighty herdsire was about to have his turn.
This time it was another girl leapfrogging Bannock, who remains pregnant at 358 days.
Priscilla, who has been pregnant for only 330 days and is one of our original foundation members produced a lovely light brown (possibly dark fawn) girl, the second daughter of Cambridge Columbus! We are delighted with her (name currently pending, due to Sue's pontificating).
She is very strong and weighed in at a healthy 8.28kg. We are doubly impressed with her as Priscilla hasn't had a solid coloured cria since 2005. Priscilla has a white spot on her chin and her last three cria have all had white markings. Well this time we seem to have got it right. Good old Columbus has produced, as far as I can make out, a very solid coloured cria. In fact I think she does resemble her father.
