Ha Ha! Poor donkey! Well, you'll be glad to hear, he has decided to do it. My Mom is still worried that he will choke on the olive oil mixture. He has scar tissue in his throat/ esophagus and sometimes he coughs and seems to be choking so bad it scares me! But I explained to her it's not hard to drink and I'm sure he won't have a problem if he sips and doesn't gulp. She also says he can't fast, but again, that's just her. He doesn't seem to have a problem with it. It's not that long of a fast anyway. This cleanse seems to be the most user friendly. If you ask me, the worst part of this liver cleanse was not being able to eat my dinner. I do enjoy my meals! Thanks for your input. God Bless you.
