Donkey Care

General Routine

© Copyright BnA Photography Mackay 2014

As well as morning and evening feeds for donkeys in the ICU, the stables and shelters need cleaning and filling of water troughs. All manure must be collected from in and around all these areas. Fair skinned donkeys require sunscreen on their nose, others need their legs protected from flies.

Much care and TLC is given to the sick, nervous and unhandled donkeys, making sure they feel secure and that everything we do to them is a good experience for them. This goes a long way towards gaining their confidence, caring for them and making handling them easier. The work never ends.
