The evening of May 6 was pretty exciting for the Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue Scenic Satellite Adoption Center, as one of their donkeys, Fernie, gave birth to a healthy female at 10:30 p.m. According to Joan Dunkle, they are waiting on naming the foal until she is a little older. “We try and name them based on their personality,” said Dunkle. “It’s still too early to tell, but she is developing a feisty side.”20150507_074215_220150507_074831

This foal is the first to be born at the Scenic site. The mother, Fernie, came to the Rescue in November 2014 when the PVDR did a round up in Reno. She was already pregnant at the time of arrival.
