The cria of 2017 have all been born and this year’s class is now complete.
Every year has its ups and downs but the ups were many! The final tally was 14 cria born, 7 males and 7 females without birthing difficulties. Very sadly, we lost one female at 8 days of age. This has left us with 6 girls and 7 boys. Blacks, a brown, fawns, modern grey, harlequin grey and rose grey make for an interesting looking field… and most were actually planned 😉
Gestation periods were a bit less predictable this year. A couple were early and a few were late.. Two were born very early in the day and one was born at 8pm! This was unusual as all our cria are normally born before 2pm. A strange year for weather also with some exceptionally hot days, although it has been mostly dry for a change.
The quality of our cria continue to improve year on year. All of our in house herd sires are represented and we have added a new bloodline as well. We have had some truly wonderful surprises and repeat matings are as expected. We hope you enjoy reviewing our year in cria… We will be posting detailed, separate progeny lists for our herd sires.
