Do you have a donkey? Let's see!
Your new donkey Van Zant
He's a honey! Pretty face!
We have a mini but the picture will have to wait till I get on the other lap top.
Happy little Van Zant
I wish we had the space to keep a couple .
In England we have Donkeys that live in the New Forest in Hampshire , free ranging.
They do have owners but are keep in herds on the woodlands and forest .
We also have beach Donkeys , they are very well protected by law .
They only allow to work a few hours a day ,for a few days a week and must have a cool shelter, feed and water.
An inspector comes everyday before the donkeys give rides, to see if all are in first class condition and the owner has fulfilled all the legal requirements .
They spend the rest of the year on their holidays at stables .
Only Christmas and Easter time they come out to take part in the Nativity and the religious Easter walk.
Sweet! Shaggy babies!
That's awesome, mine isn't broke I'm doing ground work with him first, I've broke many a horse , but never a donkey
Can anyone tell me how to determine the age of a donkey?
I believe, like horses, you look at the wear on their teeth. Can't cut them in half and count the rings. If they have a tattoo in their lower lip in front, sometimes that can get you info too. This is horses do not sure about donkeys. Other thing you could check for is a microchip. You'd need a scanner or a vet with a scanner. Could give you an approximate idea anyway.
Ok I'll try the teeth check, I don't think he has a micro chip in him, he was free . The man getting rid of him received the donkey for free also
Thank you very much
My pleasure. Now say Happy Birthday!
Happy birthday! :d
