February 17 – Ricky suffers from rickets

Ever seen a mule suffering from rickets? Due to nutrititonal deficiency, Ricky, a mule working in one of Lalitpur’s brick factories, suffers from a painful condition in which his front legs are bended. Despite his condition, Ricky still has to haul bricks from early morning till late afternoon.

Yesterday we rescued Ricky. He is a feisty equine, who -for now- does not like to be touched.  It’s a good thing that Ricky is already warming up to Buddy, a recently rescued horse, who suffers from lameness. The two can usually be seen nuzzling each other.

Welcome to our donkey sanctuary Ricky!

A video of Ricky can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjJj9RD3ATs&context=C4167b8fADvjVQa1PpcFMYZ4NkDmIwIZWR2To8D8Xt6geoc3WBsEY=
