Sallee's Cria




Sallee's delivery looked imminent for about a week and a half.  The baby appeared to have turned two days prior to delivery. After all the suspense, she chose to wait until we left the ranch at 10:40AM on Sept. 8, 2007, showing no signs of labor.  When I returned shortly after 11AM, twenty minutes later, the baby boy was on the ground.  I assume it was an easy delivery.  Named Robert E. Lee.  28 lbs.  Presumably sired by Cuzco prior to Sallee's arrival at our place.

Minutes old.  Lloyal Mariah, to the left, the ever watchful guardian, was more protective than mom of anyone approaching the baby.  You want spit?  Come get some!  Smokee, to the right, never leaves Sallee's side.

The girls line up to take turns to politely greet the new arrival, maintaining proper decorum at all times.

At the front of the line, a thorough inspection is performed.

Being born is hard work!  All the uninvited guests and drop-in relatives to attend to.  Time for a rest.

About three hours old now.  Back to work...
