Atticus (Pine County Donkey #7) is a gelded 2010 standard donkey jack who came to MHARF during a June 2017 Pine County humane case. This case involved 6 other donkeys, all of whom had not had any veterinary or farrier care for many years. Because of this neglect, several had hooves so long they could barely walk. Being the youngest of the herd, Atticus wasn’t in quite such dire condition. However, he did have severely misshapen hooves and has required specialized farrier care. Atticus still has some trust issues although he has come a very long way since intake! He is still difficult to catch and does require a knowledgeable handler. Atticus is still in rehab but we would consider adopting him out to the right home with donkey experience. He has not been separated from his friend Tansy and they are extremely bonded so we prefer they be adopted together if possible.
