(Bridgenorth, UK) -- In the wild, she would almost certainly not have survived her premature birth.
But thankfully vets in Shropshire were able to save three-week-old foal Primrose from having to live with bowed legs as a result of her bones not yet developing properly.
Primrose has had her front two legs put in in pink plaster casts to protect them while they grow.
The young female donkey doesn't seem to mind them though, hobbling around the stables and drinking milk from her mother without any fuss.
She is being treated at the Bind Equine Veterinary Practice in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, but is owned by a local family who live nearby.
