Donkeys are very sentimental emotional creatures. When they are kept together they form bonds that must not be broken by separation. If a donkey has been pastured with another donkey for years they may be bonded and must be kept together or risk death. We observe their behaviors as some are free spirits will be happy mingling while others cling to who is familiar.
Donkeys will become depressed and die if you split a pair up. We have seen it happen with pairs and trios split up. If bonded we will not separate them.
Let your donkey settle in preferably in a small enough pen you can interact with them. Give them grass hay and water let them settle in. They take time to warm up to their surroundings.
If you have dogs please walk your dogs around your pastures and pens with you let the donkey know the dogs belong and they won't bother your dogs. They learn which dogs belong and then will tend to go after strange dogs.
Donkeys are natural deterrents for COYOTES due to their territorial nature and dislike for canines. So COYOTES will steer clear as a rule. Though not always foolproof they are a great help to your farm ranch or homestead for various protections from predators.. We have had people call say their donkeys killed a snake, chased raccoons and they don't have COYOTES anymore.. so they work!
If You look around you will see ranches have donkeys with their cows to protect the calves...Donkeys are an easy addition to your lifestyle. The key is not to make donkeys spoiled pets that stand at the fence looking for treats.
When you tend to your other livestock you tend to the donkeys. Worm them when you worm your other livestock. We use Ivermectin. You can give Ivermectin pour on or paste is fine it will also kill mites both sucking and biting types.
Donkeys have a long gestation period....11-13 months. So it's hard to ever pinpoint when a donkey will have her baby. All of our Jennys could be pregnant as they are pastured with jacks before and after we get them. There are no guarantees with pregnancies but we do our best to be accurate with what we know.
One reason donkeys are in danger world wide due to Chinese hide trade is. THEY REPRODUCE SLOWLY and many are infertile!
Donkeys will make dirt craters to roll in. They like to dust themselves to keep bugs off. They like to relax in their craters in the sun. So expect that.
Donkeys are playful and like to entertain you with their antics! You can give them horse jolly balls..some dog toys...milk jugs with few rocks inside..milk jugs with holes punched and handful of sweetfeed inside...get creative donkeys are curious and like to show off.
Donkeys like to chew wood! Most are content with tree limbs that are on ground but some will chew your stair rails porch edges, wood posts, chicken brooders etc. We have 70 or so donkeys and very few chew marks on.any wood. But some may be bored and chew.
Donkeys are neat poopers...they like to poop on top of each other's poop. We keep chickens around they scratch out the poop keep flies down.
Donkeys require salt and minerals to thrive. We use mineral salt blocks and selenium salt blocks. Selenium can be deficient in soils. You can also give sulfur blocks they help keep flies down.
Donkeys require low protein low sugar diets..no sweet feeds no horse feeds as a rule. No Alfalfa ever..too high protein. They thrive on grass and grass hay. You can give Timothy hay pellets 8% protein for those who are underweight or if you just feel you need to feed feed. Literally 1/2 scoop is plenty for a donkey. Only feed them grass and grass hay. Obese donkeys are not healthy...treat them like diabetics.
Feed only what they were created to eat..grass products. If you have rich grass pastures please limit their intake of grass as they are designed to live in arid dry areas that have poor forage. Rich grass is like feeding sweet feed it can cause founder and colic. But as a rule grass pastures are fine. Pen them few hours a day with grass hay if your pastures are really rich or you can keep a grazing muzzle on....but that's rarely needed. If your donkeys starts getting a cresty neck fat on body then limit grass.
China is depleting the world's donkeys! Kenya just banned the slaughter for hides 24 Feb 2020! Brazil and several African countries banned slaughter of donkeys.
We are gelding jacks. Jacks are the most vulnerable to end up in the Chinese Hide trade. So we are gelding as many as possible each year to find them homes. GELDINGS are good pets livestock guardians and horse companions who can't reproduce. We have all sizes and colors of jacks that are being gelded. Just contact me with which jack you see and want as a gelding. We will have him gelded. (Costs $250 at vet) GELDINGS are $475-$675

Rescue means take something out of the way of danger or harm...we rescue lots of donkeys. Some starving some literally on the pipeline to Mexico to be slaughtered for their skin to go to China. We bring in rescues on a regular basis.
We don't use the word rescue flipantly nor do we claim to be a non profit rescue. The donkeys that get new homes help pay for those who can't leave for months while we tend to them.
It is our pleasure to see donkeys land in homes where they are appreciated and cared for. We always insure they are in better homes than where they came from. So if you see on our site a "rescue" donkey...it is literally a rescue still in need of TLC. Most just need weight hoof care few more trims.
If it is going to be longer than 10 days before delivery we require a NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT to hold your animals and consider them sold. Due to rude people who don't mind inconveniencing us to drive 500 miles then not taking the animal as we inform them we are almost there"we CHANGED our minds" so now $200 non refundable deposit required on each animal. Comes off balance owed at delivery.
$3450 -New custom made all aluminum livestock box. Great on flat beds or on a trailer. Heavy duty weighs about 400 lbs. One of a kind!
We keep hay in front of the donkeys 24/7 and they are on pasture. We do not feed processed feeds to donkeys. Skinny donkeys fatten up on hay and obese donkeys lighten up on hay. Win win!
WE PUT HAY ROLLS ALL AROUND PASTURES SO DONKEYS CAN EAT FREE CHOICE HAY. These donkeys were starved went straight to hay roll. Donkeys thrive on grass hay and pasture. Do not feed Bread or candy.
THIS IS NOT OUR FARM THIS IS A FEED LOT WE PURCHASED THESE DONKEYS FROM. These donkeys were fed bread on dirt lot then sold to slaughter hauler where we bought them. They have found great homes. 2 out of 27 died in first few days.
We accept cash, Zelle or Cash App and Venmo. I do not take PAYPAL or checks of any kind. Your animal will not be unloaded until they are paid in full. No Excuses accepted.
Required Nonrefundable deposits accepted thru Zelle or Cash App or Venmo to hold animals until you have fences ready etc. Deposit required Until they are delivered or your shipper picks up. Balance due upon pick up before animal gets on the trailer or upon my delivery. We will hold with deposit for up to 15 days with $ for feed added to price of the animals if over 15 days required..
please inspect the animals as you are accepting them as is. We do not intentionally sell any animal less than 100% healthy sound as described. No refunds given but if animal dies within 24 hrs I will try to replace it. You may be required to pay something for Delivery cost depending where you live. There are no guarantees with livestock that's the industry. I am reasonable and try to replace animals but no one has ever refunded my money or replaced something that died on me at anytime once was in my possession. so that's the industry standard not just my rules. In my life when something died not even $$$$ exotics who died in a day or so I do not get a refund as that is the industry standard.
Please inspect your fences prior to turning animals loose etc. We are not responsible for animals that get hit by cars because you had holes in your fence. THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. I do not replace animals that die due to your negligence in any time frame.
If I know the animal is not 100% up to par I will tell you that. I want you to enjoy the animals and for the animals to have a great life.
