Update............... 9:30pm

Just a quick update......I have just been down to see the baby and to offer to help her have a feed. We have some outside lights next to the barn. I popped out about 8.50 pm and put the light on, just in case she might need a feed....I went back about 9 o'clock.

Guess what, I had to take a double look, I sneaked a look and Minstrel was standing up, at first I thought it was Zeto pinching off Minstrel !.....But it was NOT......the little girl was feeding all by herself......how fantastic is that.

I stood and watched quietly.......inside I was so pleased.....how brilliant.... I even got the torch out just to make sure. She was feeding for a few minutes.

I will sleep better tonight !....I'm sure we all will.

However...I think Marquette is uncomfortable tonight, I wonder if she will have her baby tomorrow !

Hi Jayne. Wow, you have been busy! I am so glad the wee girl is now feeding. You have done a great job there. Maybe she needed outside to "find" the udder? Sometimes they do need brighter light to find the darker bit underneath, don't they? Lucky Minstrel is such a good mum too. I hope things go smoothly from here on.
