Gelding (male donkey)

Big Ben came from the Atkins Pony Rides in Wellandport, Ontario.  He was a well loved pet donkey and when the owners decided to downsize their business all efforts were made to find a good home for Big Ben. The DSC was contacted and we were able to provide exactly what the owners were looking for.

Big Ben is hypersensitive to flies which results in fly dermatitis. During the summer months Big Ben requires daily treatment and care to protect him from the flies. This includes wearing his custom fly pants and application of fly repellents to keep Big Ben comfortable and to prevent flies from causing further irritation.

Big Ben is a gentle giant and very curious.
