A miniature donkey was born in the early hours of
August 31 in the big Red Barn at the Indiana Family
Farm. The female foal was the first for Mother Naomi.
The foal's belly and legs were still a little wet when
the zoo keeper arrived at 7:30am says:
Z00 Keeper, Sarah Sloan.
It didn't take long for the little female, who is also
named Sarah, to Stand, Walk and Nurse.
By early afternoon, the foal was 'delighting' Visitors
with clumsy romps around the outdoor yard while
Naomi kept a close eye on her Daughter. :)
With the birth of this new foal,
this makes Three Generations of
female miniature donkeys.
They all live at the Indiana Family
Little Sarah, her Mother Naomi, and Naomi's Mother,
Esther all live in the same stall.
Because miniature donkey's are very sociable
creatures, this arrangement suites them just fine.
This is Sarah's first Toy! :)
