Donkey Feet

Opal, the donkey,was at our farm for a while until her owner could keep her with his goats. While here Opal got a farrier visit. Our farrier trimmed her feet and checked the angle of her hooves. Making sure they we not too steep. Donkey hooves are very tough but they still grow and need trimming. Opal was bought at auction and was said to be pregnant. However, after a vet check, she was not pregnant. Still, Opal is a sweety and is great with the goats. One day her owner may decide to breed her. But for now she is happy being an aunt to the goats.
