Old Charlie is our newest resident. He’s a 41-year-old gelding donkey with some obstacles to overcome. He came to us very malnourished and with severe osteoarthritis. But his teeth are still good and he is powering the grain down. He is 47 inches, or 11.3 hands. He’s a calm guy and likes being petted.
This video shows the herd meeting Sweet Charlie. Zeus was the main horse checking him out. Golly has always been the herd boss but Zeus may be taking over the role. Charlie moves very slowly due to his severely arthritic front knees. He did loosen up as he moved around though.
