 This is a real nice informative video to help owners or farriers with trimming donkey feet.  Longhopes Donkey Shelter received a grant from the Michele & Agnese Cestone Foundation to put the video together.  Kathy Dean the founder & director of Longhopes is allowing other rescues & sanctuaries to sell the video in order to get it out to anyone that needs it. 

If you would like to buy the video, it is $35.00 postpaid
if you have adopted a donkey from us it will be available at a discount price of $20.00 postpaid

It explains how to look at a foot to decide what needs to be done.  It tells about the tools & how they are used.  

A lot of little tips to make the job easier are discussed.  There is one section about trimming extremely long feet using a sawz-all & the results 2 months later.  

And you will get to see Orion, Kathy's personal donkey, show everyone that getting his feet trimmed wasn't what he had planned for the day.  I didn't think he was very bad at all, but Kathy said he was embarrassing.  But she was willing to let the world see him not be real cooperative, so people would know it doesn't always go smoothly even with one that knows the game plan.  

If you are interested, let me know.
