The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. Psalm 145: 8-9
A new birth is always exciting, but an unexpected birth brings about more excitment than the much awaited and anticipated birth. Yesterday afternoon we were greeted with such a blessing. Chynna's Blessing a Girl Cria at last a girl comes to Castle Creek Farm, and I thought we were a boy's farm, but Chynna gave birth to a girl. Reese is the daddi. Chynna's Blessing (that's not her name since it is still too soon to name her, but a nickname that I have given her) arrived yesterday about 12:30 in the afternoon and is having a little struggle. A couple of hours later and still she is not standing up, we call the vet to come and give her a check up. The Vet confirmed that the cria is premature about 3 weeks early. Her lungs sound good but she is very week and can't stand up or nurse. So now it's bottle feeding. Yesterday she was nursing well and showing signs of getting stronger but then last night she started to go down and stopped sucking. Now it's dropper time one drop at a time to help her get her strength back and now every hour feedings.
Cria only a few minutes old!!
