Born to Shireni and a wild bull prematurely in December 1998. He was put down just a week or so after his birth, suffering form congenital heart disease.

Our very first calf only lived three weeks. I had so eagerly waited for this calf to be born and only to have it for three weeks was heartbreaking.
