As Katkin appeared to be having a pause in proceedings, I decided that a cup of coffee was required for our time on the paddock bench. With a biscuit stuffed in our pockets we arrived back in the field by 11 am; to see a lovely dark fawn girl already on the ground. Sorry Amanda! After all her rushing we had missed seeing the birth by minutes.
After that I thought that the least I could do was to let Amanda name the cria. She has decided on Parisien; after the brand of coffee we were drinking!
Parisien weighed in at a healthy 9.4 kg and was up and drinking within 2 hours. Born at 334-days gestation, that's 51 days less than Explorer's time in the womb!
