Donkeys are the exotic Desert Equine. Donkeys require a serious diet of low sugar and low protein hay to stay healthy. Shelter and clean water is a must. Donkeys need another donkey to live with to be healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. Donkeys have photographic memories. Donkeys are visual learners. Donkeys require a dry paddock for the majority of their day. Donkeys evolved from the desert. Try creating fences and gates to ensure your donkey gets exercise and eats some green grass for limited amounts of time. Studies have proven if we let our easy keeper equine eat 6:00am to 10:00am the sugar content will be lower in our pastures. Never feed alfalfa hay, grass clippings, bread, or pears, apples to your donkey. A bite of an apple once in a while is safe but too much is going to cause colic. I simply do not feed apples to my donkeys. I love my donkeys and do not want to bury my donkeys. Apples can ferment and there is a chance of colic.
• A male donkey is called a jack.
• ‘Burro’ is the Spanish word for donkey. Wild donkeys in the U.S.A. are called burros.
• A female donkey is called a jenny or jennet.
• A mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse (mare).
• A hinny is the offspring of a male horse (stallion) and a female donkey (jenny).
Donkeys need dry pastures and paddocks as their hooves were made to live in the desert.
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TWO AND FOUR-LEGGED!
