Payday’s first two cria are here!

By jilladmin • June 20th, 2010

And they are stunning!  Gina delivered BESAME Payday’s Minnónar (“firstborn”) on June 17, a 20 pound beige boy who was as tall at birth as the three week olds!  Then, not 20 minutes after the vet left on the 18th (she was here checking over the new mom and baby), Empressa went into labor and delivered a 23 pound white boy, BESAME Silima (“shiny white thing”).  Both cria are doing well, but the poor moms keep getting confused, now that we have three light-colored cria racing around.  It’s chaos out in the fields at dusk!

Here are some pictures of Minno, who has some of the most lustrous fiber we’ve seen yet on a cria.  He is simply beautiful, but a little knock-kneed from having been so cramped inside Gina. Payday has definitely kicked up the quality of Gina’s cria a notch, though.

Silly is also incredibly lustrous, and has a buttery soft handle to his dense fleece. He is a compact, very solid cria with presence. He may be Empressa’s nicest cria to date, and her previous offspring weren’t exactly slouches in the show ring.



Payday has one more cria due this month, and his fourth is due in August. We are already eagerly planning his breedings for this year, and looking forward to having fiber statistics back to share with prospective dam owners. Payday’s Accoyo Baccarat bloodlines are not common anywhere, and certainly not in New England.
