It’s not just Wales that has wet summers but we certainly get our fair share. That means when we have newborn cria arriving you can’t count on it being sunny and warm. To help in first few days or weeks we use a waterproof coat to give them a little extra support. If they are slightly premature it helps even more.
We have tried a few over the years and for newborn cria we like the ones made by Mary Roach. Waterproof (made with gortex material), some padding and most importantly with good protection underneath to keep them dry and warm. Well made, ours have lasted very well.
The cria grow very quickly and they soon become too small but for a good start, they are excellent. We then move them on to the animate coats which go up to adult sizes too – but more of that elsewhere.
