On a lighter note Redgum is looking closer to calving while Cat (Cat's Whiskers) is still a little way off.
I have put Darcy in with the herd to do any "clean up" matings after the AI program. I think Esprit was mated on Sunday (which is a little disappointing as I was looking forward to a Hedgehog calf) and I have my fingers crossed that Darcy remains "unemployed" for the rest of the season. It looks like Elsa has taken to Thomas' Grand Red Royale and Boaday is in calf to Black Opal Gianni. It is up to Ebony and Encore' to hold onto their Kirup Park Thackeray babies!
The girls in the show team (Doral, Elsa, Finesse and Faline) have had a slow start to their preparation. The weather has been patchy but the main delays has been being a mother to 5 children! Paul has also injured his arm which eliminates him helping with the halter training! I am constantly reminding myself that I can only do what I can do and what will be will be.
