The small fella's dad is a pure-race Zamoran burro, and the local custom is for all foals born during the breeder's first year of operation to be named with something beginning with "A".

Those of you who are tempted to protest that such asinine tomfoolery has no place on The Register should note that the proposed names for next year's births are "Ballmer", "Bill" and "Brin". Watch this space... ®
