Miss Martina could have been named Miss Congeniality! She started as a small cria and sure took her time growing. But she is the first to say hello to everyone! And her fleece has very nice crimp. She was held back from breeding to give her time to mature and grow more. Pregnancy has barely changed her disposition with the only exception being that now she knows how to spit! Martina gave birth to her first cria in June of 2009. It was a difficult birth for her--head and toes appeared and then the contractions stopped. Human mom and dad helped out and a stunning vincuna colored fawn male was born. Vet says future births should be no problem. Martina is a good mom who gives her son room to be by himself when he wants, but is ready to be Mom and the milk bar when her son wants her. In June of 2010, she gave us our first cria out of our herdsire Whirlaway. She once again exhibited her ability to be a great mom without smothering her crias. Martina is offered with a breeding to any of our herdsires.
