On Arrival there was no doubt why I had been asked to help, this poor animal could hardly walk, he had crippling laminitis.
Donkey was trying to navigate over rough ground, with badly overgrown feet, sores all over his body, and the look of please just shoot me now.
So with donkey loaded, and a lamb in the boot of my car off we went.... On that journey I did decide that lambs crying are actually quite annoying, and reminded me very much of a newborn child...
With Donkey home, the vet and farrier called, we begun the task of making Donkey feel better. He was never going to sprint around, but I just wanted him to have a better quality of life.
Years of neglect had taken its toll, and this poor old guy needed love, and care. I understand some people cannot cope, or simply do not have the money, but please, just ask for help.
Mrs B and Donkey bonded straight away, and soon they would be seen everywhere together. He didnt really have any interest in Magic, but that was due to the fact he couldn't escape fast enough when magic is being an annoying twat.
Donkey went where he wanted when he wanted, I had no issue with him wandering around, and he needed to move as much as possible.
Donkey like so many of the animals that live here, is happy, loved, and cared for. He has no purpose, but to live out his days knowing he will get the care he needs, when he needs it, will he ever gallop nope, but he can manage a fast trot when a feed bucket appears.
