Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary December 3, 2014 Newsletter

Dear Friends & Supporters,

We hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Our weather was mild all through November. Poco, the new little burro, got settled in. He was then moved to his new area, adjacent to the other burros, Knickers & the mustangs. He is very happy with his own space where he can eat all day long without anyone taking his food. It only took him a short while to find his shelter & decide he likes it. We had the veterinarian out to X-ray his foot and discovered that he was born without a coffin bone. His body formed a hoof around another bone, which is why it is deformed.

He now has his own Facebook page, too.

In addition to that, he let me help him write the story of his life. It is nothing short of miraculous that he was able to survive for 11 years in the wild with such a deformed and overgrown hoof. We hope to self publish it very soon and it will be an inspirational story, suitable for children or adults.We will only charge as much as needed to cover printing costs. All the other animals are enjoying the cooler weather. Thank you for your support and encouragement!

Love,

Cathy & the Gang

Poco Burro Update

Poco had a halter on for the first time and had his foot X-rayed. Our veterinarian thinks he is okay as he is, nothing can really be done and that he is fairly comfortable. http://www.jersanctuary.org/horses-and-burros/poco/
X-rays show a congenital deformity. He is missing P3 (coffin bone) and he grew a hoof over P2. There does not appear to be an infection. The vet said it is very unusual. So, we know our little Poco is one amazing survivor to have made it 11 years in the wild with this handicap. He is now acting very happy here, and even bucked a bit this morning.
