Mum and the baby are doing well.

Thong Dee's maternal instincts are kicking in and she's being very protective of the newborn.

The little calf is suckling and standing close to mum, but getting a bit wobbly and ready to try to lie down for its first nap.

The other females were very interested during the birth as they watched from the stalls next door.

The calf was born just after 3am this morning after a short labour.

We couldn't be happier.
