Those of you who follow the blog are acquainted with Opal, the Codman Farm donkey with whom I've fallen in love. Since I met her, I've been disturbed by how little she was cared for (except for winter skin lesions or cuts). Her feet were always in need of care. I think that any hoof trimming was done with wire cutters. Her job was protecting the sheep and she stayed out with them in the rain and snow until winter time really set in. It was difficult to spend time with her when the sheep were crowding her out for carrots and the farm residents were less than open to my inquiries about her care.
A miracle has occurred . The farmer and his family are now gone and the new farmer is 21 years old!!! His name is Eric Robichaud and he's transformed the farm.
Opal no longer guards sheep. There are no sheep. She shares the whole barn with two giant pigs in another stall. There's a sign up with her name on it. She has definitely seen a farrier and her hooves look 100 percent improved. The barn is clean with new shavings on the floor. She was much more engaging and enjoyed the scratches and carrots I'd brought for her. I'm over the moon.
