A special delivery arrived over the weekend at the Flicka Foundation sanctuary in Penryn.
Rescue donkey Sophia gave birth to a very long legged, and as yet unnamed, baby boy in the early hours of Saturday morning (13 July).
The female donkey, known as a jenny, arrived at the centre last month heavily pregnant, severely underweight and in need of lots of specialist attention.
Sophia spent most of her younger life pregnant as previous owners bred from her as part of the meat trade in France and Italy.
There are more than 100 donkeys and horses at the sanctuary on Penty Noweth Farm.
