Bella's Baby!

Hello! And I would like to introduce you to Bella's Baby! This is Yolanda -

Gorgeous isn't she? She seems a bit darker than Bella's first two babies, and she is a girl! Bella has had two boys and we were very happy that number three is a little girl! She has a tiny bit of a star on her forehead, and faint bracelets around her legs. Bella's first baby "Freddy" I called my "Zonkey" he had so many of those stripes. I hope Yolanda keeps her pretty jewelry :0)

Bella is a very attentive Mom, and VERY protective. She doesn't let any of the other donkeys around her baby. That will wear off in time... but I like that she gaurds her so well while this little one is a newborn.

It has been a busy week around here - Tuesday night we were at the neighbors just at dark to see a her horse deliver a gorgeous chocolate brown boy - and MAN is he tall!!! LOL especially next door to our minis, as a newborn he is taller than our full grown miniature donkeys. Then we settle in for the evening last night, and decided to check on Bella one more time to see if she might be thinking about having her baby - and yes... she was already starting her contractions and we knew it wouldn't be long before we would have a baby on our property as well!

And of course we had to have our "Day One" photo with Dad :0) Sorry about the flash, the sun was just coming up and it is really cloudy... I'll have more photos on Saturday for Animal Crackers - I just love having babies on the property!

HUGS and-
