Baby donkey meets huge shire horse for first time (heart melts)

It was a case of little and large at the Dartmoor Miniature Pony Centre this week - as a new baby donkey met the enormous resident shire horse for the first time.

The absolutely adorable foal was born on 4 May at the Miniature Pony Centre in Dartmoor, Devon, and staff say he's a bundle of energy.

According to the Exeter Express and Echo, a spokesperson said: "As we are all one big happy family at the Miniature Pony Centre we thought it was time for him to meet Uncle Buster, our resident shire horse.

"True to form, our little donkey ran straight up to him to give him a kiss.

"Buster may be gigantic compared to his little friend, but he is the gentle giant of the horse world and gave him a lovely kiss back."

According to the Plymouth Herald, the Miniature Pony Centre is home to a wide variety of animals including chickens, donkeys, rabbits and different horses.

It's a great spot for a family day out. It's website says: You get a hands-on experience with lots of free daily activities. You can meet our wonderful miniature ponies and their farmyard friends, enjoy a pony ride on one of our riding ponies and enjoy a delicious home-made cream tea or local ice cream at the end of your day."

There are also four different play areas, not to mention the fact that you get to meet the farm's new baby animals "and play with them too".
