|"Ella is the current second oldest female in the family and was born about|
1965. She is four years older than Echo’s oldest known calf Erin, and it was at first not known whether she was Echo’s sister or daughter. It has since been proved through DNA that she is Echo’s sister. She had her first calf at age 12, a male named Eric. Her next son Ewan was born in 1982. Emma, Ella’s first daughter was born in 1987. Three years later, during a drought in 1990, Esau, another son, was born. In 1995, Elettra, a second daughter, was born. Emmet, a fourth son, was born in 1999. Her latest calf, a male, was born in early 2003. "
2011: "(Many years later when we did DNA analyses of the population it was revealed that Echo and Ella were most likely sisters.)"
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. Eliot has the female, but this calf more than holds her own with her male cousins."
