Moya has been Rebecca's since she was a cria herself, Moya that is not Rebecca, the agreement is that any female cria she has she can keep but any boys have to be sold ... the last few have been boys, so she was thrilled to find that this one was a girl and she has called her Mila. Incidentally, Rebecca has negotiated a few swaps and collected females along the way, I think she has come off rather well... We did the essentials and then popped a coat on her - just as well as the weather deteriorated to a howling gale with bucket fulls of rain deluging us all day. Both crias seemed fine, warm and dry under their coats and playing happily together, so we left them out. I woke at 3.30 am this morning and had to go and see for myself that they were still OK - they were fine.
Today has been dry thankfully, though still very windy. We have shearing tomorrow and so I am keeping everything crossed that it stays dry and that the wind calms down a bit.
