Room at the SPANA Inn E-Gift
This gift can help provide a mother and foal with the bedding and essential care they need to grow healthy and strong.
The team at Morocco’s Casablanca centre were alerted by a kind supporter about an abandoned working donkey wandering around Forêt de David (David Forest). When the vets found Tilila, the nine-year-old donkey was limping slowly on deformed hind feet, desperately picking at bits of dried plants and grass in the blazing heat. Not only was Tilila severely malnourished and lame, she was also pregnant.
As soon as she arrived at the centre, the team acted fast to save the mother and her unborn foal. The expert vets first trimmed her painfully overgrown and unbalanced hooves, further exacerbated by the extra weight of pregnancy. She then received some remedial farriery and physiotherapy to correct her limbs. While recovering at the centre, she gave birth to a healthy foal named Sabria, meaning ‘Patient’. The adorable foal spends her days exploring the stables and playing in the centre’s spacious garden. The pair will continue to be well looked after until Tilila is healthy enough to be rehomed with her foal.
This gift can help provide essential care for a mother and foal at one of our centres.
