I was also able to clip her for the first time. She's old girl, but she cleans up good.
I never trust anyone who says that they are too old to read a children's book.

Please help. I have a miniature donkey who is favoring front leg. After looking at it his knee is very swollen. What do you think the cause could be? He won't let me mess with it at all.

Could be a host of things, wrong in that area. You can put enough shrink wrap on that area, to ice it. Buffered aspirin are fine to give a donkey. If I wasn't inclined to call a vet, Id do both of those things. Slide a small PVC pipe in the corner of it's mouth, and drop the aspirin on the back of his throat.
Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

If he won't let you mess with it at all it is hard for other people to do much for him either.

I have a mini donkey named Rooster. When I went out this evening to feed he can't put any weight on his front leg and his knee is very swollen. What do you think the cause could be? He won't let me mess with the leg at all
