Sire Southview Amos. Dam Spinney farm Maritia.
Suzy was born in July 2016
when she came to us she was very shy she would not eat any solid food and certainly was not curious about people, we found that she would not eat solid food and nothing we tried would make her change her mind on that. when we weaned her from Maritia she sat all day by the fence it was truly heart breaking. Infact after two days i gave in and let them back together, left them for another month before being strong enough to separate them again. now weaned she is still inseparable from her mum, you will always see them in the field together. As for food, she now will eat anything from the hand or the field, it was just a matter of time for her.
Suzy is a very confident walker on the lead, she is happy to follow. She is willing to be stroked and cuddled but keep away from her backend she will kick. Suzy take everything pretty much in her stride, she is a brilliant character for the herd,
she won’t stand for what she does not like.
