A little over a month ago, we welcomed a much-awaited new member of our animal family into the world: Rum, the baby pony.
His mother, Isla, has been with us since June las year and she was already pregnant. A few weeks ago, Rum arrived during the night.
Since his arrival, he has become something of a local attraction. He is a friendly little fellow and loves a cuddle and a back rub! But of course, we first have to pay the tax to his mother Isla who won’t accept anything less than a handful of delicious grass!
Our guests couldn’t get enough of baby Rum. And who can blame them? We have certainly never seen a cuter baby animal before. That was until we saw baby donkey Eclair, in neighbouring village Guinarthe. Now take all that cuteness if you can bear it! 🙂
We won’t promise that you won’t see a donkey at Maison de la riviere that look just like little Eclair soon 🙂
