I was able to finally get some pictures of my Gulmoget ram, so far he is looking REALLY nice.
Unfortunately, I can not take credit for this nice ram and his twin sister. Their dam, Thistle Keep Sagebrush Vole was already bred to Underhill Gulliver AI when I bought her from Thistle Keep Farm/Chaparral Shetlands.
I know, I don't need two pictures of his derriere, but he has got such a nice square rear and TINY tail, it is worth a second look, don't ya think?
I am keeping my fingers crossed that his horns continue to look good. I have to remind myself that he is a month younger than the other boys so his horns have not grown nearly as much.
I will try to give an update on one or two of the other boys tomorrow....IF the photo op arises.
Little cria " Ande" is doing well.......now. He gave us quite a scare over the weekend. Saturday evening when I went out to feed the sheep and check on the new little fluff butt, I noticed yellow runny stains on his rear legs, and he suddenly seemed very weak. He would get up and walk a few feet and then lay back down and then struggle to get up again. I know how quickly neonates of any species can deteriorate, and he was clearly in trouble. I also know my limitations and I am not nearly as familiar with llamadom as I am with my other creatures, so I called the vet right away ( farm call on a Saturday night =
He is really a sweet boy, especially considering all he has been through in his short life, and all the needle poking and syringes of fluid he still comes up to us for scratches and hugs :).
