She was amazed when Peaches had 20in horse/donkey cross Katie.
Lauren, who lives in Jedburgh, Scotland, with fiance Peter, 44, and son Matthew, four, said: “We still can’t believe it.
“Katie was standing within five minutes and suckling straight away.
“I want to keep them together forever.”
Vet Iain Laghangie said he had never seen a similar case in 22 years.
He said: “The mum has coped really well.
“They can adapt to carry a bigger foal.”
