We are excited to announce the birth of the first cria of the 2020 season at Pronkin' Pastures! Meet Little Sandy Farris!
Besides being the first cria of the season here, Little Sandy is the first baby for his mom, Tiki, and the first offspring for his dad, Alladin! We are delighted and think this pairing was a real success!
Are you wondering about his name? He is named after our veterinarian! This was Tiki's very first delivery and she was having a bit of trouble, so we called Dr. Farris who came out right away and helped Tiki through the process. We are so thankful, and thus decided to name the little guy after her. Though Tiki and Little Sandy had a bit of a rough start, they are both doing quite well now!
Little Sandy is the only cria right now, but he won't be lonely for long! We are expecting 3 more babies before the end of August. Tune in again soon for details!
