New Donkey At Latheronwheel Was Quite A Surprise
Meet Ivan, aged just 8 hours with mother Mavis enjoying the view from the Latheronwheel field of Heehaw Donkeys. Proud mum Mavis was one of 6 jenny donkeys recently bought and transported from the Russian Ukraine border, Little Ivan, all grey and fluffy stands at 30 inches.
Donkeys, unlike horses. show fewer tell-tale signs of imminent foaling, so you can imagine the surprise when owner Anthony Granville-Fall returned from a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs to find Ivan following mum round the field. Aah, the joys of nature!
