Baby boy

Really quick blog tonight as it's a night in the barn for me in a minute. Thank you Irene and Andy for the advise. Belinda finally had her baby at 7.30pm this evening - 361 days. A big one and took ages she gave up in the end and I helped it out. Had to break the sack as it appeared to be drowning. It is a boy and a lovely dark fawn colour but she is not bonding with it and will not let it feed. We are about to put her and the baby in the barn in a pen with the rest next to them. More news tomorrow.


  1. Good Luck with your new arrival !...I hope things improve for you all.....Jayne

  2. Rosemary I am sure you will have read about Alice and her son a couple of weeks ago on my blog.

    Same sort of situation, hard labour with assistance required. She wouldn't let him feed and they didn't communicate with each other at all, but she bonded in the end, you wouldn't believe there was ever a problem now because she is very protective of him.

    Give me a call if you want anymore advice, I know what it's like sometime though when you are getting advice from all over the place.

    Good luck!

    Well done, Rosemary.
    Hope that Belinda will start to feel motherly soon.

  4. Thank you Jayne, Debbie and the Grey haired neighbour! I did what you did, Debbie and I think it is working. Sam finally got the baby latched on and at 3 this morning it was drinking when we checked! Hopefully, more good news later!
