It would appear that I have not blogged for a week! Well where the hoo-dar-dey-doe did that week go?
I know I did an eight day stretch at the day job and am now on the third of three days off before returning to the day job tomorrow but what has happened to my spare time? It just seems to be go, go, go, here at the moment, no more cria but plenty else happening and not enough time to recount everything. I will endeavour over the week ahead to keep you all up to date. I know you could give a monkey's whatnot but I will tell you anyway.
At the moment we are trying to keep tabs on some very lively looky likey brown cria. Columbus has given us five brown ones so far and three of them are almost identical. The other two, Sirrocco and Saracen are simply ginormous, absolute behemoths both of them, Saracen is so big he is a little bit scary.
Anyway the other three little pumpkins, allow me to have a go at getting their names right:
Ok, I am pretty certain that this is little Scout, our youngest and smallest cria. Here he is doing that weird 'one front leg up' thing that they do.
Next is the little munchkin herself, Spirit. As gorgeous as gorgeousness itself.
Here is a picture of the three of them........ who knows which one is which? At a guess I would say from left to right, Woody, Scout and Spirit, about right I reckon. Exactly the same colour, mothers are black, light fawn and medium fawn. Good old Clump!
Here is the third member of the brown triumverate, Sherwood, or Woody as he is affectionately known. As you can see he has made a complete recovery from his chest infection and is a real live wire. I know it's him because of the shaved patch on his neck, I may shave a design into the fleeces of the other two actually, for identification purposes of course.
Lastly here is a picture of Patou Rosa, a Columbus cria from last year. Those of you who know Herr Clumpmeister will appreciate that Rosa is a spitting image of her dad.
Now, can I watch some ladies tennis please?
