Eeyore

Eeyore was born on May 21st of 2012. We acquired him in October of 2012 as his owner could no longer provide the care he required. His mother was struck by lightning and killed when he was only 2 months old and he had been living with his dad in a mediocre paddock. When he came to us he was severely emaciated and his nose, ears, back and legs were covered in fungus. He sadly weighed in at only about 50 pounds. We decided to name him Eeyore because he was so sad. He moped around and would hardly leave his stall and he had no life in his eyes.

During the day we would let him loose to roam around the farm and for the first few weeks he would only stand in the door way. As he started to put on weight and become healthier he became very good friends with our dogs and he started to show us all of his very big personality! He preferred to be out with the dogs than in his paddock with his pony friends. He is no longer the sad donkey he once was he is now convinced he is part dog and he enjoys following his human friends around pestering for attention. I never imagined he would be as special as he is!

Eeyore now resides at Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning in Bradford, ON!
