Arnold Schwarzenegger is self-quarantining with his donkey and miniature horse

He posted a video as a message to fans of what they should be doing during the coronavirus outbreak.

Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is hunkering down and quarantining in his home during the coronavirus pandemic, joined by his donkey and miniature horse.

In a video posted to Twitter, Schwarzenegger is hanging out in his kitchen with Lulu the donkey  and Whiskey the miniature horse.

"See, the important thing is you stay at home," Schwarzenegger said as he fed carrots to the horses. "Because there is a curfew now. Nobody is allowed out, especially someone that is like 72 years old. After you're 65, you're not allowed out of the house anymore in California."

Schwarzenegger was likely referencing an urging -- but not an order -- by California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday calling on all people age 65 and older, and people with chronic medical conditions, to stay home. Those groups are among at highest risk from complications if they contract the virus.

Newsom also called for all bars, wineries, nightclubs and brewpubs to close in the state.

"We don't go out. We don't go to restaurants. We don't do anything like that anymore here," Schwarzenegger continued as he praised his two equine friends. 

"Look at that beautiful smile she has," Schwarzenegger said of Lulu.

The video ends with "The Terminator" wrapping his arms around his two friends and giving them kisses.

On Friday, Schwarzenegger posted a hand washing tutorial along with his tiny dog, Cherry.

"I wash my hands a minimum of 50 times a day. Anything that I do, I wash my hands over and over and over again," Schwarzenegger said.

Correction: A previous version of this story referred to Lulu and Whiskey as miniature horses. Lulu is a donkey and Whiskey is a miniature horse.
