Little Pea Pods !

 Yesterday,  I was out with the camera and managed to take some photos of the babies.  This is Zimushka on the left she was last years baby, in the middle is Zazu and on the right is Zanto.  If you hadn't already guessed Zimushka and Zanto are full brother and sister.  They are like little peas in a pod.... I think its safe to say that after three years of choosing this combination, we have managed to breed three lovely greys.  So I think we must be doing something right ! 

Zazu, he is always chewing on something.  He is the full brother to Zirrianna, they both share this very unusual colouring.  Zirrianna is responding well to her treatment, she has one more injection to go.  Mind you this is not going to be a quick process.

Zazu and Zanto grazing yesterday in the fields......they are often found together exploring.

Little Zirdar sleeping, he is a real sweetie.  A very quiet little boy with the most beautiful markings around his eyes...just like his mum.

Marquette and little Zodo, he is doing well after his little few problems.  He is feeding well and happily joins in with the play time.  But he is often found lying beside his mum.....side by side.

Some of the group, its really hard to fit them all into one photo shot now...there is always someone missing and they don't stay still for long !

The babies are adorable! Zazu looks like he's a white alpaca wearing brown pajamas! So cute.

Gorgeous Jayne...I love all the different colours together and especially the beautiful greys.

I agree Jayne, group photos become more difficult as the herd grows - there's always one looking the wrong way, or sitting, or weeing - still, trying to get the ideal photo is a good excuse to be around them!
