Outstanding Dreams Go With The Flo

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of our herd, Outstanding Dreams Go With The Flo!
Named after Hurricane Florence, Flo was born early Thursday morning just as the storm was preparing to make landfall.

Flo is the kind of cria we all hope for as she was already up walking around and trying to nurse when I came out to the barn. Big, strong, healthy, and stunning she's sure to take the world by storm! She is the second of our McCoy's crias to be born, and the sixth of hi read more...

The Comeback Kid

With mom, Adel

With mom, Adel

As I came out to the barn early on Tuesday morning, I spotted something small laying on the ground just outside the barn door. We had a cria born the previous morning and at first glance I thought this was her. As my eyes focused, I saw the other cria walking around the pasture. It then dawned on me that we had a new arrival!

I quickly went over to check out the new cria and while it was small, everything looked okay. We had a nice little brown boy. I went to the house to get the cria read more...

On Monday, September 3rd, our girl Mercy finally had her cria. All is well with our new big, strong and healthy female. Her father was Snowmass XXXtreme, one of the most well known herdsires in the country. He passed away at the age of seventeen shortly after this breeding and this will be the last of his cria.

Here are some photos of her first day here on the farm!
