He has a pair of miniature donkeys. They had a baby girl last year, but he forgot that I asked to purchase the baby and sold it to some one else when she was ready to be weaned. So, I said when the donkey has a baby, if it is a little girl, then I would like to buy her. Guess what? Last night, the little jennet was born and she will be mine when she is weaned in about 5 months. Already she has been handled to help with imprinting on humans and making her trusting and friendly. I will visit her and see if I can also imprint her on me so when she comes home, she will know me and fit right in to the menagerie of critters at the Fat Ewe Farm.
The mother is larger than the father, who is definitely a mini. The mother could almost be a small standard. The baby is all legs and ears right now and so adorable. She is shy, and hides behind her mommy. The llamas and daddy donkey are watching over her and keeping her safe from the coyotes and dogs in the area, plus there are two young livestock guardian dogs in training to assist.
I have been looking for a baby donkey girl for a long time and here she is! Sweet angel.
