The Meadows welcomes José!
Yesterday we drove the Campbellford to Bashert Farms where our friends were caring for and housing our new buckling for us during his quarantine. José was imported from New Mexico and has travelled a long way to get to us. We are very excited to have him here with us as he is moonspotted and will hopefully pass that gene onto his offspring. He is still only a few months old and has much growing and filling out to do before he is ready to start breeding. We look forward to watching him grow!
We started weaning Orion and Cassi last night. The first night went well actually with minimal crying. The babies sure were hungry this morning though and quickly enjoyed a very large breakfast with their mom once they were reunited! With the first night past us, I am sure we can continue to work through this difficult process with them. Cassi especially needs to seperate
from Bonnie as she is becoming as wild as her Mom which we just can`t have. We want her to become as friendly and easy to handle as the rest of the herd so while she is being weaned we will continue to work on her handling. We hope to show her as well in the months ahead! Orion is being prepared to leave for his new home in the next week or so. We will miss him here but know he will have a very important job where he is going.
