Gelding (male donkey)

Hershey was bottle fed from a very young age causing him to bond with his human caretakers. Hershey became harder to handle, and he did not relate to the other animals on the farm. Instead, he wanted to be with his people. His caregivers finally decided to send him to an equine auction.

When Hershey arrived at the DSC, he was fearful around the herd. He had never had the opportunity to learn behaviour from another donkey. Instead, he preferred to stand alone by the fence.

Hershey’s rehabilitation is ongoing. He can be pushy around people and forceful in his attempt to seek attention. For this reason, we do not allow visitors to approach him.
