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.
Update: Clarence has done really well with getting his overgrown hooves trimmed back to normal. He’s not shown any signs of lameness and is a very sweet little donkey. He is ready for a great new home and can only be adopted with his friend Toby. Adoption fee is the cost for both, not each.
July 2021 Update: Clarence and his good friend Toby are being fostered by one of FRER’s adoptive homes. While there have been adoption inquiries for the pair, they have either been unwilling or unable to provide Clarence with the care needed for his Cushings or the person inquiring would not have met FRER’s adoption requirements. These two have been together for quite some time and will remain together. Meanwhile, they are safe and happy in their new “digs”.
November 2021 Update: Toby and Clarence are in a wonderful foster home with one of Front Range’s adopters who is caring for them at this time.
