    No calves imminent as udders aren't bagging yet, but lots of lumpy tummies with kicking babies. [​IMG]:)
    It won't be too long now though.

    The boys' new antler's have really started to grow now.
    Picture, my handsome young bull Gandalf (rising two) and father to 5 prospective calves. AND not long to wait now for all those tiny hooves. 5 babies Gandalf, 4 babies Frodo and one to Finn.
    Eeek, I can't wait even though it will be a worry with so many first time mothers.

    My lazy lumps. Gravid girls, spending most of their time snoozing (Boris on guard).
    Their hard feed isn't being taken as much but then they are browsing the wonderful lush tree growth and the grass is nutritious now.
    I still think Twiglet will be the first to calve this year? (another female calf?), her tummy isn't large but her udder is developing faster than Mischa and Katya. Pretty sure Katya has a male Monster on board again but thinking first week of May for her. Mischa must be late April/early May as shes huge, I wouldn't guess sex of calf as to be honest she is a chunky girl anyway..
    Won't be long now for babies to hit the ground. Exciting and scary too with so many first time mothers.

    Boris is such a good man, making sure all the expectant mums are ok while they are resting.:inlove: There won't be so much rest for them when those little hooves appear.

    Can I have a little rant? ;)
    New Legislation has been brought in in the UK for "Performing Animals". I was delighted as I hoped it would ensure healthier animals.
    But no, my inspection is tomorrow and with two Council bods who have never met reindeer and no knowledge of livestock, just paper shufflers - give me 10 vets instead!
    I have spent the last 3 weeks producing reams of paper work for them, which isn't needed, as it's only me so who will read it and to be honest if an Emergency, who's going look for a file and read it...
    I will sleep tonight thinking about my Emergency Fire Drill.... We are talking about fields... My neighbours will lock me up if I run round shouting FIRE!
