RIP Corona - Navajo Churro Sheep Passes

Forever Loved
Forever Missed

Sadly we have lost another Zoo Friend.
Lovely Lady Corona passed yesterday morning.
RIP  Sweet Precious Girl XO!

At age 16, Corona was the Grand Dame 
of the Navajo Churro Sheep Family.
She held court in the Yellow Barn 
and even while plagued with arthritis 
she gracefully let children pet and brush her.
She was an elegant lady. 

You can view her Memorial Video here


  1. i loved Corona very much. I am thankful I could spend Saturday at the zoo. I am and will forever thankful I got to kiss her many times Saturday. I love you Corona.

  2. @lee- i know, me too. i miss her already and knew something wasn't right when she was not in the barn today. it wasn't the same without her. she had a great spirit to her, just taking in easy, but when those treats came out, she perked right up! everytime i visited her i would push her hair away from her face and clear the saw dust and hay from her face. she was a special lady. many tears for her. XO corona :)
