It’s cria season here at the farm and they’re hitting the ground every day at the moment (which means a serious marketing effort later in the year, otherwise we won’t be able to feed them all!). It’s a daft time of the year really, it doesn’t really tie in with the Australian show season – Any that are worth showing only get a couple of shows at the end of the season and are too old for the 6-12 month classes next year.
One more and we’ll be able to enter a progeny team at the end of the year. We’ll keep you posted on how things go.
So far this year, no serious problems (keeping everything that’s crossable well and truly crossed…), we had one mum that was a bit fragile, but after a couple of false starts, she gave us another brown girl.
Even Juno, our only fancy has managed to ‘go solid’ this year.
As you can see from the pictures though, it will be nice when we get some grass back…
