Sprite is the baby of the herd
this year. A special needs baby when she was born (and obviously crowded
by her bigger brother), she had badly twisted front legs and could not
stand at all. We had concerns on whether she would ever walk correctly
but a lot of physical therapy and braces for nearly 4 weeks and she now
has some of the nicest legs in the herd. Michael deserves much credit
for getting her out on a daily basis and working with her and
encouraging her to walk even when I'm sure it hurt. She's been his
project this summer and he loves her dearly.
Sprite is out of our precious Angel Dust and the only kid out of Royal
Cedars Samurai. She is a carbon copy color wise to her daddy but
has her momma's personality. I'm afraid she is a bit spoiled with all
the attention but she's going to be a pretty big doe from the way she is
developing. Very correct in all areas of the scorecard, we can't wait to
see her mature.
