Henry County's Pet Of The Week

Special photo

Our Pet of the Week is Sophia, a 4 week old baby miniature donkey who is shown with her mother, Momma Mia, and their owner, Mary Joe Hanes of Locust Grove. Sophia was born on March 9 and Mary Joe says “she is a very feisty little girl.” Her mother was rescued last June from a closed petting zoo and they believed she was pregnant at that time. Mary Joe added that “Sophia is still getting milk although she has started eating a little grain out of her mother's portion. She doesn't eat any treats yet. She loves to run and kick up her heels and spends a lot of time pestering her mother, who is extremely patient with her. She also enjoys being petted and scratched and loves to be around people.”
