It's a girl thing?

You may remember that on a previous post..... HANG ON A MINUTE! I'll come back to that, Karen at Amyrick reports of the arrival of not one but two brown female Qjori cria yesterday. That means we are almost up to 50/50 girls and boys Huzzah!!

Anyway where was I? Oh yes, you may remember that on a previous post I said that we were weaning Truffle at 4 months because her mother, our old Chilean girl Dee, was rather thin.

This meant that the bulk of the female and cria group went into the big field whilst we kept a small select group who are on extra rations. With that group are three of this years cria, Tabitha, Talisker and Tsar Tsar Superstar.

It is interesting to see that the two boys behave differently to Tabitha. Here she is watching me with the feed bucket having been giggling whilst Talisker was showing off by rolling in the dust bath.

She continued to watch and was soon following me towards the shed.

Where she immediately tucked into some hard food.

And the boys? What's a bucket? What is hard food? Who am I, where are we?

It's always the same, the girls tuck in whilst the boys just haven't got a clue.

What would you expect ... after all we are the superior of the species, some might say the first attempt of creation of man was slightly flawed, which then resulted in a second more superior breed with less flawes....which ment ladies, you guys just have to live with that one... I'm afraid !.....Jayne

It simply means girls are more into snacks and treats than boys are ;-))

We always think the girls are quicker off the mark with suckling.

Just like to add we are thrilled with our Qjori cria and just wish you had had the 75% females from him that we had. Having said that Tsar is looking a bit special!
