Our newest Cria was born this morning shortly before 10:00 AM this morning. I had gone out to feed at 7:30 and Chloe was laying down, but she got up when I came over to feed and seemed fine, she ate and was moving around with the rest of them like usual. Kevin was out doing clean up and went back over to check, and she was laboring, cria's head and legs were out so Kevin helped her deliver.

She weighed 16 lbs and has been up and about. She is nursing very well and is bright eyed. She is already trying to pronk.


  1. First to Cria cries!!!! Adorable!!!!

  2. OoooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


    Oh, she's the cutest one yet! What a great face!
    swooooons with cuteness...
    Clever Chloe, what a good girl!
    Yay for nursing right away and bright-eyed and sassy! Love the tail UP. FOOOOOD. Oh, my..
    Oh,in the first picture, I had a hard time seeing her. She was wearing a cloaking device:)

  3. Patedi was word verf.

    Pat Edi? Nah, her name is definitely not Eddie.
    Chloe, she has been my favourite from the beginning... (gazes adoringly....)

    MAN, I needed that.
    Hugs and love to you CCC!

  4. Ankytedh.

    Anky and Ted H?
    What is blogger trying to TELL me??
    Has anybody else noticed "they" NEVER do maintenance anymore, no scheduled outages?
    No? Must be just me..
    Okay, I need a nap.

  5. Perfect! She looks lovely! So glad Chloe did well, and Yay ,for Cria tech Kevin!!!!

  6. Please forgive my cria ignorance here, but what in the world is pronking? Never heard that one before. But what a cutie!

    Yay Kevin! for being there to help her into the world. And Yay! for the camera being handy with batteries in it. Ours seems to eat those anymore...

  7. Kevin did much better this time, when Killer was born, he called me in a total panic.

    I am bery prowd of my wittle girwl Chloe. She is my favorite adult, so sweet, and she is always sweet with the other 3 cria who try to steal her food even though they aren't hers.

    I told Clare Bear that she has cuteness competition big time.

    I can't wait to see what her color is outside in the natural light.

    Yea for happy, healthy, pronking 9 hour old crias!!!!!

  8. Hi CNJ, thanks for coming over to see the baby.

    Pronking is what they call what baby pacas do when they are feeling playful. Like rearing and bucking and scooting around that foalies do.

    It is really funny and cute just like with foals.

    I am so relieved that she is already feeling so good, since my last little one was never this energetic and didn't make it.

  9. Pronking is like when they go STRAIGHT up in the air, all their little legs underneath them. Like they've just jumped on an invisible balloon.
    Antelopes, lots of the wilder grazers "pronk". I think.
    It's also an early defensive move/ploy type deal thingy dingy. Go STRAIGHT up in the air, and then go
    That way!
    (just so NCC gets it, you gotta point with NCC:)

    Maybe they prink, too:)
    I can't nap. WAY too early. I mean late.
    We needz the Cria Cam!!!!!
    Okay, I needs a Cria Cam.

  10. OHHHHHH THE FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I pronk occationally. It's quite unintentional.

  11. awwwww, so sweet, that little girl cria.
    Glad it all went well for Chloe.
    Happy mama-baby duo!

    word verf is wingg

    she pronks with winggs spread!

  12. I agree w/ GL. Cutest one yet. Face like her daddy perhaps?
    BHM - you is funny!

  13. Cutest baby yet!! Sure glad everything went well with no disasters. Hurrah for crias and pronking!!!!
