The Babies are a Comin'
Spring is here, and it seems like almost everyone has a new baby donkey or mule, or one on the way!
Waiting for your mares and jennets to foal can be pretty stressful and tiring sometimes, but it's all worth it when you finally have a happy healthy foal on the ground.
I'm trying to patiently wait for my jennet, Pansy, to foal. She isn't due until May, so I have a few more weeks to wait. This will be her first baby. And it will be my third young baby donkey (2nd born here).
Pansy has started getting wider around the middle the past month or two. Does she look to you like she's starting to fill up? These two pictures were taken the end of February.
Do you have a baby on the way? We'd love to see pictures of your new babies when they arrive! Just email your photos to us, and we'll be happy to share them with our other Longears Mall visitors, too. It's hard to get tired of seeing pictures of all the beautiful longeared babies learning about the new world around them!
To get things started, here are my last two longeared babies - born in 2001 and 2002.
If all goes well, I'll have a new little tyke to add to the collection in a few weeks! But in the meantime, send us your photos for everyone to enjoy!
Have an idea you'd like to see discussed in a future article?
