This is what we face when we open the door & attempt to walk out of the feed room at feeding time. Belle is on the porch & always makes sure she is closest to the door. These five don't go into pens to be fed, they all eat at about the same speed.

Tonight when Pepper came in for supper, he seemed lethargic & was coughing a little bit. I took his temperature, it was 102.5, average for donkeys is 97.2 - 100 degrees. I gave him some bute, & John will check him tonight when he lets most of them out for the night. Hopefully it isn't anything serious. Although Pepper has Cushings & is Insulin Resistant, he's never been sick since he's been here, except for one episode of founder over 3 years ago.
