Well as my little donkey herd is slowly expanding as has the number of enquiries I’m now getting for both donkeys and donkey management tips. Here’s the latest addition – Felicity – who was getting the lick of approval from TJ the beagle!
So I’m currently compiling a list of Frequently Asked Questions (and my answers) that I’ll add to the website now that I’m finally back on top of things at the farm. If you have any questions at all in relation to buying or caring for a donkey, please drop me a line and let me know, so that I can be sure to cover all bases.
In the meantime, I’ve added a Resources page to the website where I’ll start adding some of my favorite farm reading resources. There is so much information out there that I sometimes find it hard to get the good, basic Information I need to answer the most fundamental questions around farm operations and livestock management. When I do find a good one, it is like gold! So if it saves you some time and helps you deliver better outcomes on your farm, that’s great.
The first resource I’ve added to the site is a brief overview on the Management of Donkeys by Dr John Kohnke BVSc RDA. This is a good overview of the most common health issues and maintenance needs for your long eared friend. Kohnke is a feed and supplement business that is very well regarded by other donkey owners, though I haven’t personally used their products.
