Snuffle's Tale

Snuffles 9/10/2019

Last year, Sept 10, we had a little male cria born. He was perfect in every way, I thought! He was a beautiful light rose gray with obvious density, crimp, and fineness from the moment he was born.

Then, we noticed he was a wry face. He had a birth defect that causes the muzzle to be twisted. Sometimes the deformity is too bad and the cria doesn't survive. But he was feisty and we decide to give him a chance. Well, it turned out that he was able to nurse. He was gaining 1/2 lb/day.

So far, so good, We named him Snuffles because he made a snuffling noise when he got excited because his little twisted muzzle effected his breathing a little. We knew he had a long road ahead of him, as sometimes there are unseen issues as well.

To be continued...
