It was only last December that we retired Lonnie from our Adoption Scheme due to his advancing years and so it came as a terrible shock to us when he suddenly died less than an hour after calling our vet. The only indication we had that something wasn’t right was that he didn’t want his breakfast that morning. Nothing else seemed amiss but knowing that a donkey that won’t eat is an ill donkey, we rang the vet straightaway.
Unfortunately Lonnie’s problem was too serious. The inquisitive, loving donkey who could easily make us laugh and loved getting attention, was gone after spending 18 happy years with us. We miss you old boy..
