Cria, Cria, Cria

Peaceful Heart's Virgil

We have had a very busy week.  As soon as Linda and Sharla left for their trip to the fiber mill, the crias started arriving.  During the 36 hours that they were gone, Mike and David managed the arrival of three new farm members.

The first cria to be born was Peaceful Heart’s Virgil.  This adorable little boy was born to Klarice and is our first cria from our new herdsire Maximus.  It was a cold and foggy morning, so they quickly dried off Virgil and moved him and Klarice into the barn.  Virgil is a beautiful dark fawn with a cute face.

The Princess of Peaceful Heart

They barely had time to work with Virgil before, they turned around and found that Electric Snow had just given birth too.  We have bred Snow to our herdsire Lord Tennyson three times because we love the crias they produce.  For the first time, we now have a little girl from them.  In keeping with the theme of Lord Tennyson poems for each of his offspring, we have named her The Princess of Peaceful Heart.  She has a lovely fleece and we expect she will develop as nicely as her brothers Timbuctoo and White Owl.

Peaceful Heart's Gillian

Mike jokingly told us to stay a little longer, and he would get all the crias delivered.  Little did he know that Ruthie decided to take him up on that and the next day delivered a beautiful little girl.  Peaceful Heart’s Gillian is our second cria from Maximus and is a true black like her sire.

The crias have joined Augustine and Marcus in the pasture near the barn, and we invite you to come see them all.  We still have one more cria due next month, but this week did see the majority of our fall crias born.
