So, the animals belonging to Bruce that we have been caring for since December have started to drop their cria.
On Tuesday I got a call while down in the hospital visiting Wesley- Yvonne had come up to work with the horses and noticed a cria on the ground! We were not expecting the first for another few weeks. As the cria was healthy and doing well there was no panic or rush, and when I got home I discovered that Bruce was first-time lucky, Sugar had dropped a lovely fawn girl for him.
This afternoon we brought our girls down for matings and other maintenance (including the rodeo-action of washing Holly’s back). When I went to get the girls at 6 I looked over the fecne and one of Bruce’s other girls was acting a bit odd. By 7:30 the reasons were clear- Carmen had dropped another little fawn girl! Two times lucky!
