It’s a boy – Paragon’s Vírin

By jilladmin • June 4th, 2010

Marbella delivered a gorgeous 18.2 pound white male on Memorial Day Monday – we have named him Paragon’s Vírin (“magical substance of which the moon is made”).  Marbella is a Ramilo daughter, while her dam produced Cappucci, a gorgeous fawn herdsire for Humming Hill.  Ramilo was one of the most influential suri herdsires ever and needs no introduction for serious suri breeders.  Vírin’s sire is Accoyo Paragon, a Jackpot son.  Wth bloodlines like this, we hope he will add some magic to our breeding program!

Vírin has been strong and active since his birth, which was easy and uncomplicated, but Marbella’s milk has been slow to come in.  She was unbelievably overconditioned when she came to us, and while we’ve slimmed her down some, her body score is still higher than it should be and this may be interfering with milk production.  Vírin has been quick to figure out his two supplemental bottles a day and eagerly accepts them – while Mom does her best to stomp the interfering two leggers into the ground.  Did I mention she’s a very protective mother?  Vírin is gaining well with minimal supplementation, and I certainly hope to be able to stop offering the bottles soon – Marbella has excellent aim when she spits.
