    This is just the second time this has ever happened (the first zonkey, Zambi, was born in Lincolnshire, England). And we’re so glad that few months ago, Zippy shocked his owners and emerged into the world.

    Kristine Turner owns a 55-acre farm in South Barrow with several donkeys and one special zebra, Ziggy. She purchased Ziggy for £10,000 in Germany never thinking anything like Zippy would happen.

    But when Rags, a four-year-old donkey, fell in love at first sight with Ziggy…well, you know how it works. Ziggy was born.

    Turner told Didyouknowblog.com: "Ziggy has always been a bit porky so I didn't notice she was getting any bigger. It was a complete surprise… Last month I opened my bedroom curtains, which look onto the farm, and I just saw this little foal sitting up staring my way. I was in complete shock. I ran downstairs in my PJs, put a coat on and went over to see him.Ziggy has really taken to motherhood and she's a great mum. He's never out of her sight. They wander around the farm and do everything together."
