Protect Your Donkey From Poisonous Leaves

Donkeys look at fall leaves as treats dropping from heaven. Donkeys will eat, and eat and eat.

How can I determine what trees and leaves are toxic?

Try Leafsnap  a new free app that identifies trees.

Protect your trees and your donkeys

  • Don’t cut down toxic trees in in your donkeys pasture.
  • Simply prune branches away from your donkeys reach.
  • Move the donkeys to another pasture until all the leaves have dropped, rake the leaves and compost away from the donkeys. Now this pasture is safe for your donkeys to return to.
  • Fence around young or small maple trees for protection.
