Just a quickie

We noticed that Sunstone, one of the imminently pregnant females, looked as though she was going to give birth today, so we kept checking on her. The heavy rain recently which followed immediately we had them sheared has made them much happier to use their shelters and Sunstone and co spend quite a lot of time lately just chilling in the shelter, and eating hay or ruminating.

She gave birth at 10.20 whis morning in the shelter and by 10.45 the cria was searching for milk, always a good sign. He is a solid brown male and seems good and strong.
