Clarence is a miniature donkey rescued in June 2019 from a low-end auction. He was in a pen with another donkey (also saved). Clarence’s hooves are overgrown but he does not show signs of founder. He has a distended abdomen and fat pads on his body. After being evaluated by an equine veterinarian, his body weight (under those fat pads) appears normal. It will take a number of trims to slowly return his hooves to normal. Fortunately, he does not appear lame at this time. Clarence did test positive for Cushings and is on 1/2 tablet of Prascend daily. He is friendly and will hopefully adopt to a qualified home in future with his friend “Toby.” Both will require updated dental care in the fall.
