Bridgette arrived very sick after having been in the slaughter pipeline but is now 100% healthy! She has had her dental done and feet trimmed, and she is an absolute doll in every way. Her mom, Penelope, arrives terrified and you could not get near here. Donkeys typically never forget any experience they have had whether good or bad. I am sure having gone through the slaughter pipeline and protecting her baby the best she could had to have been exhausting and scary for her. She is SO much better now; she comes up to you for treats and allows you to pet her head. She will be great but needs someone with patience and who will not demand anything of her until she learns to trust. She is totally worth the wait! We are hoping to keep mother and daughter together.
