We have been aggressively treating their white line disease in their hooves daily and will continue to do so. They seem to be walking more comfortably and we were finally able to put them in the larger field with other donkeys. They had only ever met one other donkey before so they were confused when they realized there was a whole herd! It was so fun to see them run up and down the field with the others! Getting more exercise is also good for their weight loss and health issues-which has been going very well! Their fat pads and turning necks have gotten much smaller-they have still a little ways to go but wearing grazing muzzles during the day has really helped to make sure they don’t overindulge on sugary green grass and impend their progress. Millie is also starting to grow hair back on her nose where she was so badly sunburned-even though it is still quite sensitive. We love that they are learning what it’s like to be part of a herd, as donkeys are very social and enjoy seeking interaction with others.
They are doing great!
