Rescue Donkey Sings ‘Lion King’ Song Along With His Favorite Human
Singing rescue donkey will make your day
Nathan the rescue donkey has gone viral.
Human Travis Kinley didn’t know Nathan had such a performance gene when he picked up at the border of North and South Carolina a few years ago.
Kinley tells WLTX “He was causing some trouble at someone else’s house and I just picked him up for $100 bucks, he seemed alright with me.”
They’ve had a fun relationship since Day One.
“You can always tell he’s a thinking animal,” Kinley told WLTX, “He’s just playful, that’s just in his nature.”
Friends come up with a goofy idea
Some pals suggested Kinley go into his pasture in Sumter, SC and sing with some of his horses.
Yeah, sounds like Kinley hangs with some fun folks.
“So, I got in the pasture, I gather all horses…. I start singing and Nathan starts to bray behind me, and I’m kind of blown away because we never do this together; we never sing together,” Kinley said. “He keeps going, so I keep going, and all of a sudden I just kind of break down laughing at the end.”
Here’s more from WLTX:
The video is certainly spreading a lot of joy. It’s been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
