Zanzibah Zambo ..... has arrived !

 
 
We have a baby !!  Meet Zanzibah Zambo .... he was born very quickly this afternoon, I had only checked a matter of minutes and nothing was happening.  Until my mam spotted that there was a cria out in the field.  I rushed up to find that this little fella was up and already looking to feed.
 
This is Dusty's new baby .... he is jet black.... definitely not Grey !! He looks so much like his dad, he is feeding well and was suckling within 10 mins of being born.
 

 
It was so hot this afternoon, I decided to put the girls and the new arrival inside the barn for shelter until early evening when they were turned out for a few hours grazing.  They are all tucked up inside once again until this little boy is a few more days old.
 
 
Little Zambo ... he is a real character already, just like his dad... Holly is next she is due anytime now, infact I wouldn't be surprised if she has her baby tomorrow. 
 
The maternity suite is officially open .......... here in Zanzibah Land !!

Congratulations on your first born of 2013! He looks lovely. Hope all the others run smoothly and don't sneak in behind your back like he did!
