Bruiser, approximately 25 years old, was rescued from a terrible livestock auction in February 2016. He was terrified, extremely malnourished and very sick with pneumonia. He has been through a lot in his life, and has the scars and wounds to prove it. He was missing a big chunk of one ear and had an eye so badly damaged that our vet determined it needed to be removed.  Bruiser’s wounds and injuries healed, and he learned to function just fine with one eye.  Barely recognizable from the donkey we rescued, Bruiser is sweet and kind, and has a calming presence about him.  But he can also be very playful, and really enjoys playing with other donkeys in his senior herd.  Around the rescue, he is known as “the sexiest donkey alive” because he is so incredibly handsome!
