I adopted a standard donkey from a rescue yesterday and she has bad feet. Let me give everybody a little history of the donkeys. She was owned by a person that neglected her as well a 20 other donkeys a released all of them onto federal land to find for themselves. Of the 20 donkeys 9 of them were jennys and pregnant and the rest were intact jacks.
I am thinking that she is around 5 or 6 years old, she has had some handling from the foster home that she was in before I adopted her. She has trust issues more with male that females and is not easy to catch since she is currently on 60 acres. I have been able to get within 2 steps of her before she runs off.
Her hooves have not been taken care of in quite some time and her left rear is the worst of them all....and she is a kicker!
I need a little advice on having someone trim her with her being scared and afraid of males.
Here are some pictures of her...
