The Kid Should See This

Primrose the donkey and her pink plaster casts


Just three weeks old, Primrose is already being worked like a donkey – but her challenges are tougher than most…she needs to learn how to walk with plaster casts on her legs. The foal was born prematurely without properly developed bones. But now thanks to the custom-made plaster, her legs can support her while she grows. The casts may cause frustration for the little donkey, but vets in Shropshire (pron: shrop-shuhr), England say she’s one lucky lady, because she wouldn’t have survived in the wild. Now Primrose can look forward to growing tall…and all while being pretty in pink.
