Back in 2015, we wrote about Adonis' rescue.
To help refresh your memory, Adonis was a beautiful and lovely natured young stallion, who was very well cared for and much loved by his owner who also had Adonis' mother.
Not long after visiting the two donkeys during our outreach at the time, we received a frantic phone call from the owner telling us that after his donkeys had been let loose by someone, Adonis had badly damaged his left eye.
After putting our vet in contact with the owner and giving him some advice to keep Adonis comfortable overnight, the owner soon realised that he could not give Adonis the proper and intensive care he so desperately needed, so we collected him early the next day. The injury to his eye was horrendous, and we did our best to treat it. Fortunately, although now blind in the eye, the eyeball was saved and Adonis made an amazing recovery. Throughout the daily treatments, it was as if he understood we were doing everything to help him. Adonis never complained and stood patiently during every procedure.
Adonis is such a brave and forgiving boy despite his eye injury adventure, and we all love him to bits!
We are so pleased to let you know that Adonis is doing perfectly fine, despite his ordeal. He is such a confident kind donkey, who loves being around people. Bless him, although he has got no bad ''habits'' he can be extremely noisy, particularly at night! He frequently wakens the holding base owner and starts the other donkeys braying - you can imagine the noise!
It never ceases to amaze us how forgiving animals can be despite going through traumatic events.
