Tiny Baby Wild Burro
Everyone knows there is nothing cuter than baby animals, of any kind. But baby burros are by far at the top of the adorable list.
This little girl was not even a week old. When we first saw mom, we didn’t see the foal because she was sound asleep under mom. She would open her eyes, and raise one ear, then go back to snoozing.
She eventually got up though, standing slowly on wobbly legs.
They were pretty obscured by the creosote bushes, but talk about cuteness overload.
Being cute and tottering around, and getting milk from mom is exhausting though. So down she went for a small rest.
That fuzzy nose!
This chocolate burro was obviously last years foal, and you can see by his expression he was not impressed with a new baby sister. He tried a couple times to get milk from mom, but she was having none of that.
Mama kept a really close eye on her. She would explore a little, and patient mom just followed.
Going under mom was a particularly fun thing to do.
I also made a short little video.
I hope you enjoyed this dose of cuteness. The blue links will take you to my Pixels.com site.
Wild burros are threatened with roundups just as much as our wild mustangs. To not see them in the wild anymore, would be tragic, and I will always fight to keep them free.
