Meet Lachie!

Huge amount of excitement here this morning! Candy Girl had her wee baby!

We've been checking in her every day and when Lloyd went over this morning there was a wee surprise waiting for us! We've named him Lachie. He seems strong. Candy is 17 and has had a lot of calves in her time and her previous owners told us shes a good mum and she certainly looks like she's taking good care of him.
We're really happy - we've been waiting weeks for this!








He does like Yoda look.
