1994: " In 1994 an event was about to happen in the family that Cynthia did not want the cameras to miss. Echo was about to give birth again. After many nights of around-the-clock watch, Echo gave birth to a perfectly healthy female calf. The calf, which was named Ebony, was a very precocious and curious calf who wandered around exploring her home, making her an instant star"

2003: "Interestingly, he (E-mail) seems to have established a relationship with Eliot and her calf Emilio and also with Echo's daughter Ebony"

2012: "Echo's family, the EBs, have had seven new calves since November. Ebony, Eliot, Enid, Ella, Elettra, Echeri, and Eleanor have given birth to six males and one female."
