In mid-April our lovely Molly went into labor and I
knew immediately that she was in very serious trouble. Our
veterinarian Perry Ragon was called and he arrived here quickly.
After a brief exam I was given the expected bad news. Molly`s
situation was about as bad as it gets. Her little foal of course was
dead and due to a severe dystocia it would be impossible for her to
deliver without assistance. The unborn foal was not only in a breech
position, but upside down as well.
Molly did recover very quickly from her ordeal. I
believe that several factors played a huge part in her recovery.
First she was in excellent condition at the onset of labor, and just
as important I had a veterinarian that came immediately to pull her
foal. After several rechecks as well as antibiotics she bounced back
to her sweet healthy self.
Our little gal is now ready to be adopted into a
permanent loving home. She is a calm, sweet individual that gets
along well with others. She is in a small group of three companions
here at TPDR and I will only place her into a home where she will be
very special to her new family. She will thrive with individual
attention. Molly will do about anything that is asked of her. She
needs a gentle hand and is certainly not pushy or threatening in any
way. She is a real lady for the farrier, and is very well trained to
lead. What a great prospect as a therapy donkey!
If you can provide a kind, permanent, loving home for
Molly where she will be special and not get "lost in the
crowd" please contact us. She must have a permanent, easy going
equine companion. And no, we don't put our rescue donkeys "On Sale",
so please don't ask.
