Mary’s donkey made the three-day trip from Nazareth to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph, spending most of the journey carrying Mary. When they arrived in Bethlehem and discovered there was no room in the Inn, the weary travelers made their way to the stable. Joseph used the donkey's saddle blanket to make a place for Mary to rest. While Mary and Joseph made the best of their dwelling place, the donkey went to his trough and found it filled with cool clean water. The donkey drank deeply and then found a soft corner of the stable where he could rest. Within moments of falling asleep, the donkey awoke to the bright light of a brilliant star heralding the birth of Baby Jesus.
