Was out walking today and stumbled across this newborn Kudu. The mom’s usually keep them well hidden for about 4 months so we rarely get to see them until then. This was a treat. Look at those cool stripes, “got milk” mustache and large ears.

I had trouble putting the video in so had to put a link to our Facebook page
What a nice Easter this year in 2010. Mable, our original Sable Antelope, had a female calf. One of the perks when guests stay at B Bryan Preserve, is that they get to name any babies that are born while they are vacationing. We had a wonderful family staying for spring break. Sarah got the honor of naming this little sable and after much thought, Emma is the name.
Sarah not only got to name the baby, but she actually witnessed the birth and helped with the tagging and weighing. Emma weighed in at a healthy 34 lbs!!!! It is unusual for guests to be able to actually get close or pet one of our animals. This was a rare occasion. Remember, we are NOT a petting zoo.
Thanks Sarah for being such a big help. Come back and visit your new friend.
The month of April brought very little rain, but it brought us a lot of new babies.
We were fortunate to have 2 newborn Sable Antelope calves, both females, born this April. They are named, Flower and… April.
Along with Sable Antelope, we were also amazed to find an early arrival one morning. Sarah had a beautiful foal on April 21. She is one of several critically endangered Grevy’s Zebras that we are trying to breed in captivity to sustain the species. There are less than 2,000 of these beautiful zebra species left in the world.
We are expecting 2 more of these great animals this year at B Bryan Preserve in Point Arena, CA. A great way to spend a vacation in Northern California, Mendocino County.
