I AM NOT A HORSE
Donkey’s don’t display pain or illness like horses or mules!
Donkeys are stoic and enduring. Know the signs of your donkey being in pain or ill. CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN.
1. Standing off alone away from his/her companions or herd.
2. Lying down more than normal.
3. Standing out in very cold weather refusing to come in.
4. Off food or water
5. Walking tenderly as if on hot coals.
6. Limping in any way.
7. Listless or withdrawn.
8. Shaking or shivering
Donkey’s don’t roll or thrash like horses when in pain or when they are suffering from colic. Donkey’s don’t tend to complain, they withdraw. Donkey’s hunker down and ride it out, sometimes to their peril. Please know the signs and save a donkey.
