The Race is OVER!!

It was a long race, and it ended with a VERY long night last night! Yes.. both Macey and Jazz crossed the finish line last night! We have two MORE babies! Jazz was first at 10:45.. she delivered a beautiful baby boy.. looks like black again.. this time with a black nose. He popped out, then up and was on the run... and he hasn't stopped. He is going to keep Jazz on her toes and running after him all of the time! Oh yes.. it is a he - Carlos...



Then at 11:30 Macey went into labor despite a snake crawling near her.. she delivered a wonderful tiny healthy little girl! (Yes.. Hubby took care of the snake as soon as we saw it!! eek!) Macey did give us a worry for a while as there for a few minutes we thought there might actually be two babies... but no (twins can be very dangerous) Please meet.. Felicia - she is named for my one of my best friends daughters.. (NOW Becky... I have named a donkey for you :0) LOL) Felicia is really a gorgeous little grey dun with the sweetest white "star" on the top of her head.
We had to do our traditional "Dad with baby" photos this morning... Dad with Carlos...

Dad with Felicia....



And Dad with Sergio... (born day before yesterday)
How wonderful is this photo? Look at all those Moms with their babies... Lots to take photos of now huh? Now we have a breather for a month or two before Patti should be coming close and we will start watching her... This is the joy of breeding Donkeys!

I do hope you will forgive me for not having a card again today... I was out in the pen with the donkeys for over 7 hours last night and well... on top of working all day with Hubby out side in the 102 degree heat building the addition - BTW.. I look like a lobster. Today.. I am just worn out -

So again forgive me for not having a card - those that are new to my blog.. normally I only show donkey photos on Saturdays.. but it was a busy week here with all the new babies! Back to regular schedule tomorrow..... me.. I think I need a nap now! LOL

HUGS and-

OMG!!!!! Love, love, love them! I think I'm slightly partial to the little gray girl, tho', but they are all adorable. Glad you got rid of the snake! Didn't need to stress "mom" out more than she probably already was. Thanks so much for sharing! Did I say I love it?

Michelle,
Where in Texas do you live? My hubby is from San Angelo, and every summer we spend time there, but travel to Dallas, Grapevine, Scroggins, Abeliene, Wall, Austin, San Antonio, etc... I swear I saw your donkey farm , and had my hubby pull over so I could take a pic!!
Aloha~
