Payton Dankworth, a junior in high school from Texas Peyton, unexpectedly became a foster mother to a tiny donkey.
The donkey Jack was born weak and tiny, so his own mother abandoned him. The farmer also did not want to look after a problem animal and gave him to Payton.
Jack's first night at Payton's house was not an easy one. The girl was watching the weak boy all night long, feeding and cuddling him, so that the exhausted and fearful donkey would feel better.
The timid donkey was not a burden to the schoolgirl. She was genuinely pleased that Jack got stronger after each meal. By the way, it was necessary to nurse the growing boy every 2 hours!
The donkey became attached to his foster mother. He wouldn't fall asleep without her, he followed his mistress everywhere, and he also befriended the girl's other pets.
Jack had been starving a few weeks ago, but the love and care of the schoolgirl brought him back to life.
Now Jack is full of strength and energy!
