Will.i.am arrives in Patouland!

 
Well, not the real Will.i.am but our very own version. At 8.30am on Tuesday morning Fifi gave birth in absolute textbook fashion to a very handsome little brown male who we have named, Will dot I dot am dot, or Will.i.am. He will obviously be referred to simply as, Will.
 
Fifi is a fawn Wiracochas Dream girl and has always produced cria the exact colour of the sire. She produced a black boy, Rico (Sire Jack of Spades), a brown boy, Scout (Sire Herr Clumpmeister) and now Will.i.am (sire Qjori). Wait a minute, three boys in a row, time to have words with Fifi it is time to start earning her keep with a female or two!
 
Fifi is a huge favourite here and a delight to deal with. She is part of the 'Space cadet' family. A family who are as calm as can be, never spit, kick, struggle or swear. She is a fawn who will always stay within the herd, she is an honorary brown, especially as there is bound to be a run of girls now.
 
Will weighed in at 7.45kg after 356 days gestation, was up and feeding within regulation time and is doing well. Una is delighted to have a playmate. Here is some footage that I took this morning.

I am still on full alert here in Patouland. Bannock is now 359 days in, Poppy is 356 days, Rosa 355 days and Bobby has just hit 345 today. There is plenty of wandering around with tails sticking out and any one of them look capable of popping at any minute. Marvellous stuff, now get on with it!
