Baby Primrose is in the pink

A premature donkey foal born with bowed legs is now happily racing around on a pair of specially made casts.



Filly foal Primrose, now three weeks old, is sporting pink casts on her front legs, which will help support her until her own pins are strong enough.

The casts haven’t slowed Primrose down one bit. Since her fitting, she’s been zooming about at the Bind Equine Veterinary Practice in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, where she has proved popular with visitors.

The clinic expected the casts could come off in about 10 days.

Primrose is owned by Michelle Rickards.
