Christmas on the farm

A new baby arrived at the King farm Dec. 13, just in time for Christmas, and was appropriately named Noel by 12-year-old Marci, granddaughter of the owner. The foal's mother, Apple, appears to be moderately proud of her accomplishment, as is her owner, Jane King, who has been raising donkeys at the farm on Ga. Highway 20 South for 10 years. The only note of discontent was sounded by 10-year-old grandson Gib, who had his heart set on naming the new baby Rudolph.
