A baby donkey was born last week at Caneel Bay Resort.
Chad Prentice, Guest Services manager, has been looking after the little girl, becoming the critter’s official photographer. Video of the baby trying out her two-day old legs (!) can be seen here.
Caneel has announced the winning name is “Sugar Millie”. Caneel posted news about the birth on its Facebook page and solicited names for the foal. More than 200 suggestions were received. Others which made it into the top five were “Neely,” “Precious,” “Rose” and “Sandy."
BTW, the gestation period for a doney is 12-14 months, and donkeys can live 30 years, or more.
