imageFour short years ago, Coconut along with her best friend Mocha arrived at the sanctuary after suffering from neglect in the hills of Oakland. These sanctuary sweethearts were two peas in a pod. Together, they loved to feast on sweet fruit treats, sun-bathing, hours of graceful grazing and human hair-pulling. So much love was shared between these two gals. We enjoyed the sight of Coconut and Mocha sleeping side-by-side each night before lights out in the barn. A bond between two friends couldn’t be stronger.

Today, we mourn the passing of Coconut especially for Mocha’s sake. We suffered a great loss this week. But, we find great peace in knowing friendship never dies.
