The pitter-patter of tiny hooves can be heard at the ISPCA National Animal Centre with the arrival of a bouncing baby donkey. And we are looking for suggestions as to what we should name the little fella! Suggestions can be made on ISPCA Facebook
The little boy was born to “Primrose”, a piebald mare donkey that was rescued by ISPCA Chief Inspector Conor Dowling a few weeks back as she was in poor condition and had badly overgrown and misshapen hooves.
Due to the fact that Primrose was in foal, the ISPCA farrier and equine care staff were limited in the treatment that they could administer. But now that she can receive the very best of attention it is hoped that she will make a full recovery. Despite her problems, Primrose has proven to be a great Mum.
Chief Inspector Conor Dowling said “It was great to catch up with Primrose and her new arrival and to see how well they’re doing in the care of our specialist staff. The foal is a real character and I’m sure he’ll provide a lot of entertainment for visitors to our centre”.Viewed 2269 times.
