Tess' Cria
 
On a Saturday in March, Tess delivered an energetic baby girl.  She was squirming around
 and trying to stand immediately after birth.  It wasn't long before she balanced on those thin wobbly
 legs and took her first steps.  She followed her Mom around and soon was nursing and getting her
 colostrum.  Since it was a cold early spring day, we put one of our cria coats on her to keep her warm. 

 


Starting to stand.


"This coat is warm and cozy".

"I have a new playmate!"


"I'll smile for the camera!"


"Watch me!  I'll show you how to run!"


Rain Cloud's Cria

Another spring day Rainey also delivered a female cria.  She's silver like
 her Mom and has four white legs.  It appears that she is a suri like her Mom.
  We dried her off with towels and the hair dryer to keep her temperature up and soon
she was standing  and trying to nurse.  The sun was out that day so we moved her
to the front yard of the barn and she enjoyed the warmth of the sun while her Mom
enjoyed some of the grass.  After a nap in the sun, she even felt playful and was 
trying to run and jump - just within a few hours after birth.


"This warm sun helps dry me off".


"Help, Mom. These long legs are a little wobbly."


"I think my legs are getting stronger."         


 "Think I'll try to run!  Oooops, this isn't easy!"


"Yawn .... I've had a very tiring day!"
