Comments / pictures

The Group that also contained khine war war and chit Mimi was housed shortly at Vd Brink Soest and came to Amersfoort on 1990-10-05.

Indra's mother arrived at Amersfoort pregnant in November 1997 from Rotterdam. Khine War War gave birth to Indra, her only calf, seventeen months later.

Irma [Indra] of Amersfoort is expecting a baby in November. It is her second one; the first one was kicked to death by her and her mother. This year she can deliver in a large barn, but her mother - Khine War War - shall be separated in a box as a precaution. Irma is not alone: Chit Mi Mi, and Jula are with her during the birth. Father of the baby is Alexander.
