Got home after dark last night and found that Rebata had finally had her baby. Phew! We were starting to imagine all sorts of horrible scenarios.
We wrote in our farm diary when we put her in with our stud Enrique last year, but we forgot to write when we moved her back in with the girls (oops) do we weren’t really sure if her due date.
We kept checking her tears and there was milk in there so we thought she was pregnant for sure and nearly due. But when no baby came we were getting worried and wondering if maybe she had it and was dead and a fix took it. Well luckly not. He was in there all along growing huge and strong.
He is drinking well and bouncing around. Mum seems to have milk. That’s great as bottle feeding Milton is all we can manage. Milton was our first cria this year and we had a very rough time keeping him alive as he was early and his mum had no milk.
