Cria racing with hurdles!
He's cracked it...Minnie's cria was caught nursing at 21.00 hrs on Sunday night...he's a bit slow finding the teat, but he gets there in the end. He had lost a little bit of weight this morning, which was to be expected as he was refusing all our feeding efforts on Sunday. We have decided to rename him Max...Minnie and Max sounds rather cute...and nobody actually called him Zachery for fear of getting too attached too early.
Max looking a little fancy!
Team training has started early this year. Magellan and Crystal are looking very competitive. Normally training on the flat; the team have introduced some hurdle training this year:
Crystal takes an early lead...
Magellan coming up on the inside...
and it's Magellan who takes the first hurdle closely followed by Crystal
I kid you not...that is Pebbles fast asleep in the sunshine...with the cria jumping over her on a circular course...it must be one of the funniest cria antics that I have ever witnessed...Magellan is certainly a character, and Pebbles a sound sleeper! I wish that I had taken more shots but I was having far too much fun watching!
