This little gal had a rough start to life. During the last 3 weeks before birth, her Mom had 'something' going on. She was super uncomfortable, laying around with little appetite. Anytime I checked her- the cria seemed to be in the same position - like she was stuck. What a worry that time was!
Sachet was born about 16 days before her due date. Very bright, healthy little gal- but - her left back leg & hip area were 'flared' out. It took about a week for all to settle & look normal. She received Vit. A & D shots every couple of months to help strengthen the muscles & bone. At times, she still has a little pivot in the area of her fetlock/foot.
Nannette did her best for a month - with vet. intervention- but died. Autopsy showed that she had a very large abscess in her belly. So little Sachet was an orphan. Super friends - Leanne & Kevin Sept- took her home & cared for her that winter. She did very well under their loving help.
We chuckled when they brought her home - on the back seat in their extended cab. Kevin opened the door. Sachet sat there, looking about. "Come on - get out!" She jumped out & through the gate. We followed her in & she went right up to Whyte Out. What a memory! Not being home for over 5 months, 25 + females in the paddock & she found her surrogote milk supply first thing!
Whyte Out had been a surprise that fall. There were about 6-7 cria born between Sept 14 & Nov.1. Often I would see another nursing from Whyte Out. One night there were 3 at once! Of course the camera was in the house.
Sachet actually has done well for her rough start. She was easy to train to halter & lead. Granddaughter - Tabby Rose- took over at the Futurity show in Red Deer in 2006 - when Tabby sat down - Sachet would cush beside her - up Tabby got & Sachet was standing right next to her.
Sachet had an AJAX (an Alpamayo grandson) female in July/07! WHITE! SOFT! Shalette!
July 28/08 Arrival of a nice white female! Shavonnette! Sire is a GIOVANNI - Vengador descendant. Sachet has now been bred to a grey fellow! Figured would try a colored sire this time around -after 2 white from white fellows. So July/09 will be interesting.
