Sad News

Sadly our little cria passed away early this morning.  He was a true little fighter but mother nature decided it was not to be.  Its hard to accept that what appeared to be a lovely, large perfect looking cria could not be healthy and survive!  But the vet said it was just one of those freak acts of mother nature and there was nothing that could prevent it. Something that should automatically and naturally happen on birth didn't and there was nothing we could do about it.

I think mum had already sensed it was not to be and had started to stand away from him, we have left him in the stable with the door open, and after several trips back and forth she has now made her way back out into the field to join the rest of the herd.

Its such a sad waste of a life and a year, but hard as it is we must look forward to the rest of our births this year and hopefully a lovely new cria for her next year.

Farewell little man you touched our heart with your beauty and fighting spirit. RIP xx

Oh, no - I know exactly what you mean and can imagine how you are feeling.
Dreadful news - every best wish from all of us.
