Lightning Donkey is doing much better– his eye has cleared up and his hoof is getting better too, thanks to Dr. Cannedy and his much hated (by Lightning) Epsom salt soaks.
So don’t let the picture below startle you! Look closer and you will just see a very sleepy donkey completely konked out in the sun!
Lightning will often sleep in this bought-the-farm pose, and we get quite a few radio calls from the guest services desk letting us know a guest is worried about him. We always appreciate when visitors are looking out for the animals, and we always go check on them when we receive a concern, but we usually have to laugh when a donkey call comes in- just ’cause we know how Lightning likes to stretch it out and slumber!
Thanks to Ashlyn for the pic!
