Happy Rolph's in St. Catharines welcomes newborn donkey and goats


St. Catharines' Happy Rolph's is welcoming some new additions.

A donkey named Texas gave birth to a baby girl Astrid early Monday morning.

Her birth was a surprise to staff, who showed up for work and found the baby donkey there already.

Astrid joins a pair of baby goats that were born there on Saturday morning, and another baby donkey is expected later this summer.

The farm says the babies are all doing well.

The animals at Happy Rolph’s can be viewed daily, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., until mid October.
