It went on to read... Four crias - that is!
Yes, with the delivery of Tess's cria on July 5, we are now up to four crias this summer! It's another boy, and a very handsome one! He's a beautiful shade of rich, dark chocolately brown unlike any other color in our herd.
Although Tess delivered when we expected, we still missed it! When we got out to the pasture in the morning, baby was already delivered, partially dry and nursing. So, without further ado... meet 'Morgan of Pronkin' Pastures'.
You see, we were experiencing a very exciting day in the weather department as I was writing this! Thunder and lightening are not very common here, but we were treated to an incredible show Friday!
So there I left it, and outside we went. Ron to begin daily clean-up chores, and me to get the store open and ready for visitors (even though we didn't really expect any to brave the storm).
No sooner did we get started, when we were 'interrupted'. In the middle of this very exciting thunderstorm, Caelia appeared to be going into labor!
Once we could actually see nose and toes, it was just minutes before baby was on the ground. The whole process - from first signs of labor (above) to actual delivery - was about 30 minutes.
Half an hour later, baby is warm and dry (with the help of towels and a hairdryer).
It's so much fun to see the little ones grow up together! They are full of energy, curiosity, and mischief.
And yes, we did end up losing power for several hours, but thankfully, no damage to this old computer.
