In my first year, mostly out of nervousness, I assembled quite a large and complete cria kit which included everything you could possibly buy! But over the years, I realized I only really used a handful of items.
So here’s a shortened MUST-HAVE list:
- Towels and/or hair dryer
- Iodine/umbilical cord dip and small plastic cup for dipping
- Trash bag for placenta
- Frozen cow colostrum/kitten bottle (just in case)
- Cria coat in colder seasons
- Tel number to your vet
