Frollicking cria, a cure for all!

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I have been a real grumpy git over the past few days after some blogging shenanigans. Roaming around grunting, it hasn't been pleasant.

Anyway, today I am all better after a wonderful display last night from the Patou Formation Racing around randomly Team.

We have been weighing Rosa and Roger, our two premmie cria daily to make sure their rate of gaining weight has increased. They are now both putting on over 200g a day so we are much happier now. At the weigh in last night the rest of the cria decided to put on a display for us. It was wonderful and I managed a few snaps. Sorry about the lack of focus in some shots but they were moving at speed. Perhaps I should buy a trusty Nikon?

Shall we just stand here and watch? Lets have some fun!

Ruby, airborne!

Rafiki in full racing greyhound mode.

Ruby, Reeay and Runa pick up the pace.

Rafiki joins the girls as the pace hots up.

Finally, having been weighed little Roger the dodger (front right) joins in the fun. I just couldn't get a shot with all six in, try as I might.
So enough of all that, today, we are finally shearing! A little late due to bad weather but we are game on for 10 am today. I can't wait, I love my girls when they are fleeceless, so graceful, so fragile looking, just lovely, lovely, lovely!

A group of cria must be a cure-all for most ailments - hope the shearing went well with that dampness about last night- we're lined up for sunday afternoon.
