    Here are the photos I took yesterday before soaking. She was trimmed and resected 3 days ago and has been treated with white lightening soak 3 times already, once before the resecting. She has not been lame or tenderfooted since then! I am so pleased with how well she has behaved during this, she is allowing me to place this hoof in a plastic bag filled with liquid, then vet wrapping it closed and placing the entire hoof in a soak boot to protect the bag! This is huge, she will also not allow anyone else but me to do it, but I'll take the progress!! Still plan on having the vet look at her at the end of the month however the sole looks remarkably different since the farrier debrided. Let me know what you guys think here as well.

    Farrier did a GREAT job. I would have done the exact same thing,

    I'm so glad you are taking the time and effort to help this jenny, but I am appalled that she was allowed to get in this condition at a "sanctuary". There is no excuse for this jenny to be "wild", she was adopted as a yearling & should have been gentled and taught manners from the get go. Basically, the owner "rescued" a healthy young burro from the BLM & turned her into a near cripple through neglect. One reason I am VERY leery of many rescues.

    She is no where near crippled, walking just fine now as stated earlier today. Please no rude posts, if you have something inflammatory to remark I would be happy to discuss your misunderstanding via messages

    I don't get what's so 'rude' that Bellasmum said she's appalled by the previous neglect. That's not at all a judgement on you OP, & I'm not wanting to assume what exactly the problem is there, but the basic facts as you have told them, include that this donkey has been kept by the 'sanctuary' long term, neglecting to even get her tame enough to be able to assess/treat her feet until now.

    IMO you are very much to be congratulated for being caring & responsible enough to change this situation, especially as you have said you're not even an experienced horseperson, and employed for an admin role.

    Unfortunately, 'rescue orgs' are too often rather... compromised in some ways such as this. Be that because the owners want to save everything under the sun, so they take on too many beasts to care for adequately, or ones that may be beyond it & better off euthed, or whether they're big hearted but not very knowledgeable, or think providing better than the animal was getting before is good enough... or perhaps the rescue org is in a situation where they can't afford or don't have access to the right professionals... whatever. I've even met rescuers who I think their main burning desire is more about ego & esteem of being a 'rescuer' than for the animals themselves. I think it's vital to recognise these problems & be realistic and considerate about what's taken on, if you want to be a true sanctuary, rather than your unfortunately common 'better than nothing' type situation.

    I just wanted to chime in and say THANK YOU for caring so much for that little guy. The equine world needs more people like you in it. Xoxo

    Jenny is still doing great, hooves are growing out wonderfully and no tenderfootedness or lamness since the farrier trimmed back the extra sole and resected the hoof wall.I have seen multiple other people on this forum even discuss how their burros/donkey have issue with white line disease and are hard to work with as well so while I am sad that so many are also having this issue it is nice to know that our Jenny was not appallingly mishandled as a few of you would have me believe!

    I think you have been misreading then, as after reading this, went back thru the thread & can't see where anyone assumed anything like 'appalling mishandling'.

    specifically this but it was also worded that way in a personal message.

    **sigh** I stand by my original statement. In your first post you stated the burro " has had chronic laminitis and abcesses and possibly foundered slightly a few times" and "over the last few months she has had almost nonstop issues with her hooves". I pointed out that, IMO, there is NO EXCUSE for this Jenny to be WILD after seven years in captivity. You took great offense at my referring to her as a "near cripple", a remark I made based on your original post. In your PM taking me to task you backed up, stating the issues had started within the last month....which is it? You also stated that the Jenny and mustang mare had been "rescued" from a BLM auction where they were in danger of going to slaughter, which is nonsense....the article you sent me as "proof" is quite clear about it being an adoption event.
