Mini Donkeys newbi
Just got 3- Mama,male yearling, intact daddy. Didn't know I was getting them til 2 days before they were offered. I live on a 26 acre piece of heaven-20 acres of oaks and 5 of hay pasture. We have the little family in a holding pen full of native and St. Augustine grasses, lots of shade, lots of sun. I see tons of mini donks around in open fields, yet read that free grazing is hazardous. I don't understand.
The jack, JJ, is already comfortable with me- has a neck with lots of bites from another donkey. Best way to clean? His neck wounds seem to be healed- just really crusty. I want to clean and brush him out, but don't want to do something stupid that will lose his trust or get me kicked. I will call the vet on Monday- just wanted a head start. Would appreciate help. THANX!
