WHAT IS THE DONKEY?


Did you know that unlike regular horses the donkey does not have waterproof hair and needs to be sheltered during rain or snow? Also did you know that if a donkey and horse mat they will have sterile offspring known as mules. Another difference between the donkey and the mule is that a mule is bigger then a donkey. Donkies also tend to live anywhere between twenty and twenty-five years of age.



They are also very friendly animals and are well mannered around children. Dogs and donkeys usually donít mix, although they can be trained to leave the house or farm dog alone. Donkeys can survive on good quality hay alone and that hay is usually a mixture of alfalfa and grass. Pure alfalfa is too rich a feed Donkeys and does not settle with their digestive systems. They can also become extremely fat or obese if fed incorrectly.

If there is only poor quality hay available to feed them a donkeies diet should be supplemented with a 10-12% protein equine sweet feed. Donkeys are termed as "easy keepers" meaning they utilize their feed very efficiently and you must be careful that they do not get fat. Fat donkeys will develop a "crest" - or fat roll - on their necks that will be there for life once it develops. It is also bad for their motor skills. Miniature Donkeys are very healthy animals. They require the same yearly vaccinations as equine. They should also be dewormed, with an equine dewormer, at a minimum of three times per year, preferably six times per year. They require the same hoof care as equine and should be trimmed at least three or four times per year. Female Donkeys are usually fertile after one year after birth but it is best to wait two years before breading them. Males on the other hand are also fertile at this age but should be bred fourteen to sixteen months in age to ensure healthy offspring.
