These things are just adorable
I want one!!
They are really neat, the cria after being halter trained follow you around like little kids, and really personable, they are real playful, and they get to know you really well as well, I feel safe being in a paddock with them.
There are only a few merchants who buy the wool in NZ however, so you don't get as much as what people anticipate, but hopefully with the emerging market, there will be a few more players in the games, and we can get some competitive prices, currently no one purchases direct.
They don't take up a lot of land, and actually pay for themselves, just nibbling on grass, and I chuck them some hay/horse charf.
Apart from Worming, and making sure they don't get fly blow, they are mint animals.
