No Cria Today: Returning to Jay Tomorrow


Sonnet decided that day 340 was not going to be delivery, so I have no cria news for you today. Yesterday she was up and down, keeping herself a bit away from the others, going through all of the preliminaries and we figured today was it. No baby, no sign of a baby. Come on Sonnet, stop teasing. At this point, we will look at a picture of

Madrigal and Little Sister Cavatina

Madrigal is due in April and seems to love to mug for the camera. Note the smile. She’ll get right up to the camera and show that grin whereas Cavatina frequently has those bedroom eyes. So here we are, the entire family waiting.

For good measure, I’m going to throw in a photo today of Martillo. We haven’t decided if Marti is herdsire material yet. He and Fantine (her photo is elsewhere in my blogs) were born on the same day. Marti is friendly, Marti has Grade One fleece, but Marti has one brown spot on his back so he could never be shown.

He is quite the young man now–pure white, ultra-fine fleece, about 15 months and an excellent pedigree. (His sire is Torbio.) But there’s that  spot. Does it mean he can produce color and, if so should he? Stay tuned and see how things develop.

We are traveling tomorrow, so I don’t know if there is time to blog. If not, I’ll be back shortly.

    wow, your whites are so…..well…. white! Our white Suri boy has adorned himself with MUD, bark from a gum tree and MORE MUD.

      They are actually adorned with Utah red clay/dirt. I sneak in after a rain to take photos so I can pretend they are clean. There’s probably dust from the Great Salt Lake mixed in too. This has been a rainier than normal year though, so I guess they are cleaner than usual. I figure once we get them to Oklahoma, we may discover that those wonderful reds will wash off.
