Casper

Breed: Donkey

Gender: Gelding

Age: 10

Caspar came in to rescue with Princess and Maestro, but he was not from the same home as them originally.  As best we can tell his length of ownership there was only 6 months.  Prior to that, he was living life as a livestock guardian donkey, specifically working with cows.  Caspar has enjoyed getting to be a donkey among donkeys, and has integrated wonderfully at the donkey farm where he fosters.

His hooves were terrible when he arrived in rescue, but he was able to be trimmed and has make remarkable progress on hoof shape, but this will be ongoing with him for several months to get his hooves in shape.  Caspar is shy, and will need a gentle natured owner to help him continue learning to trust people.  He is not mean to people, he simply has had limited positive interactions with them, and prefers to keep his distance.  Casper could be a livestock guardian again, but his adoptive home will need to commit to proper veterinary and hoof care. Casper’s adoption fee is $250.
