A Soggy Sunday Addition to our Animal Crackers!

Well we thought it might happen during the night. A front came through, it was chilly and raining. And Vicki was more than ready to deliver. And when the sun was just peaking over the horizon, Hubby went out to check, and sure enough - we had a soggy addition to our Animal Crackers Family. Meet Vicki's baby girl - Leticia
 Totally adorable! Tiny little thing, really tiny! And well... a total shocker. LOL oh no we were expecting her... but well... a Spotted Mom and a Spotted Dad = a ... looks like a brown little girl!!! The last two that Vicki and Raffie have had were spots, and so this one was just a bit of a shock! Raffie's Mom is a solid brown so I guess Grandma had some to do with Leticia's coloring.
It had rained all evening into late last night. Not a lot of rain, but a slow yuck rain. So everything is wet... including most of the donkeys. And it is going to take a little longer for this baby to dry off and poof out. Vicki is a proud Mom, and a muddy Mom.

 And even though he got really nasty wet and muddy - "Dad" had to have his day one photo with the tiny little girl. I can already tell he is going to spoil this one rotten! Hubby has a real soft spot for the tiny donkeys. Especially the girls ;0)  I think that is cuz he knows the boys have to go.

Hope this one stays small, cuz she has LOTS of color in her genealogy. Yes.. we keep records as far back as possible. I have up to 6 or 7 generations back on some of our donkeys. Better Genealogy records than I have on us that is for sure! LOL

Have a wonderful Sunday!
