New Arrival ... Rose Grey & Blue Too !!



 Today started with excitement, at 9am this morning Zakhura gave birth to a beautiful Rose Grey Boy. I have decided to call him 'Zanzibah Zazu'.  He was up on his feet within minutes, thankfully we have had a nice day here in Scotland so he has been out with the others enjoying the better weather.  Zakhura's pregnancy has been 327 days, which makes him 2 weeks earlier than Zirrianna last year.  It looks like its going to be a Blue year ....here also, but I am not complaining.  He is lovely and its great to see them here safe and sound.


 The first new arrival is now just over 2 weeks old, full of life and a real character...he loves racing round the fields at top speed.....he now has a playmate which is good.  Its funny how sometimes it takes a little while to decide on names for some babies, whilst others just appear to turn up...and suit a name.  I have eventually decided on a name for my little fawn boy.  He is to be called 'Zanzibah Zavia' . The name Zavier is Hebrew and means 'Bright'.  As he is a lovely Bright fawn I think it suites him.  Mind you....I have thought of a few others ..... nuisance, trouble etc !!


 As you can see, Zavia is racing round the field as I took this photo of our new arrival just getting to grips with those long legs and balancing.  Tonight he has mastered the art and is already joining in with Zavia and being pestered already.

 This is a dry photo this afternoon, he is just like his Dad, Zanubis, he has passed on his lovely colour once again this year to his offspring.


 Spot the difference...this is the other new arrival her in Zanzibah Land.  I have ben so inspired by my felted Teddy Bears made by Calamity Bears'   I decided to have a go and see what I could make.  This is my first attempt and I have really enjoyed making him.....not quite a Rose Grey...but he might as well be a little Boy !  I can feel a bit of felting addiction creeping in !


And finally........ I think this photo...just sums up the bundle of mischief, who I now know to be Zavia!!
