Hope mum and babies are well, it is always an emotional time but something so special, each and every time.

Looking forward to pictures

Check out the website - Derek (hubby) got some fantastic shots........even 'action' ones !!   Daisy and family are all doing very well.     Mother nature just never fails to amaze me.   Within 15 secs of popping out, they snuffle a bit, sit up and in less than 1 minute they've made their own way to a teat!!!  Incredible.    :D ;D :D ;D :D ;D

They are superb, wonderful photos.

Yes and then 20 minutes later they are fighting or trying to have sex with each other.  They pack so much into life they are amazing.

....but by 6pm this evening, she was absolutely ravenous and came charging out when she heard the bucket rattle.  Wolfed it down like there was no tomorrow......and then back to the nursery for a bit of breast feeding!   So, if anyone is after some weaners at the end of March and into April.......we have a few available!!!  I'm going to Birth Notify them....just in case there's a future champion there!!!    ;)
