Zanzibah Zorro !

 
 
We have a new baby .... on Friday morning Zakhura gave birth to a lovely rose grey little boy.  He is doing very well and is full of life.  He was up within ten minutes and feeding, since then he hasn't stopped running around !  That's the way I like them, he appears to be a little whirl wind. 
 
 
I have decided to call him 'Zorro'  as his markings on his face look like he is wearing a mask.  This is him early on Friday before he dried.

 
Here he is at top speed .... running around checking out his speed ability... less than a few hours old!


And finally a much slower photo, he managed to walk past me and I captured a quick photo opportunity, he is now nice and dry and a lovely colour with lots of curls.  Zorro is a lovely happy little chap.  All my girls are due any time now, so I don't think it will be long before he finds a playmate. 

Ive managed to get the haylage sorted out for the winter, it was a bit of trial and error as usual and the weather wasn't great at times.  But I'm just pleased to get it out of the way, which gives me a bit more time to spend with the babies..... when they arrive, the haylage is due to be wrapped tonight, so no doubt it will be another late finish.

Woop woop your first baby of the year just as I'm willing my last to arrive. He looks a lovely bundle of fun.

Nice one Jayne - Zorro looks like he will be a bit of a playful character within the herd. Shirley & Robbie
