Coco the foal
At just seven weeks old, little Coco has had more than her fair share of drama in her short life. Orphaned shortly after she was born, Coco needed a life-saving plasma transfusion, round-the-clock specialist care and help to cope with the loss of her mother at such a young age. Despite all of this, Coco is thriving.
Coco needed a blood transfusion
Last week I was lucky enough to visit Coco, a gorgeous little orphaned foal who has sadly had a difficult start in life. When I met her, Coco had already experienced bereavement, a change of location and a transfusion – all at the tender age of just five days old.
Sometimes it takes a while for you to realise how much a donkey's story has affected you, and that was certainly the case for me with the tale of Rupert.
