It’s a Boy!

You may recall from a previous post that we acquired a very pregnant miniature donkey a couple of weeks ago. We had anticipated her giving birth any day, but it had drug on almost 2 weeks. Well, The Wife and I went out to feed the animals this morning and she remarked that it would be funny if we walked around the corner and saw a new baby. I poo-pooed that thought and I questioned if the donkey was really pregnant rather than just very fat–maybe we were duped by the people we bought her from.

Well, sure enough, Cleo had given birth to a bouncing baby boy overnight. Judging from the birthing scene and the fact that he was still a little wet, we think that we only missed it by a few hours. We were bummed because we really wanted to capture the birth on video. Anyway, behold the cuteness:

As you can see, he is quite healthy and already on his feet–though he is understandably unsteady on them. The kids have anointed him Eeyore. Here he is grabbing a quick snack from mom:
