Good Morning!

May 29th, 2015

We are happy to announce the arrival of Trompie, born early this morning in our farmyard to Lulu and a caballero from Upington.  Baby and mother are both well.  A strapping 12 kilos, hazel eyes.

 

Meisiekind, the grandma, is brimming with pride. Of course, she’s our wedding planner and one suspects that the development of Trompie’s amorous life will be closely supervised by the grandmother.

Lulu, the mother – as you some of you already know – has a weakness for shopping. Not only is she famous for featuring in selfies, but she has been known to do unsupervised shopping/looting in our farm store. She’ll augment her wardrobe as soon as the baby bump settles, wouldn’t she?

So, of course we’re wondering: will Trompie take after his mother, or his Latino father? Will he love bullfighting or the Stormers?

Time will tell.

    Die donkie is inderdaad ‘n wonderlike ding! So ‘n ou-wereldse bekoring! En klein Trompie is geen uitsondering – hoewel met ‘n uitlandse kinkel! Veels geluk!
