    Thanks for all the info on the hay testing. Mr. T has had his teeth checked, is wormed regularly, but still looks on the thin side. He just turned two this month and I am wondering if he is just going through a growth spurt.. He is ALWAYS very hungry. I feed him prairie hay and turn him out on a 24 acre pasture. We are in a drought here so the pasture is not too lush but still green.

    Hi there we just bought a ginny and were given a jack they are both about 3 years old and she is pregnant with a due date in about 11 months. We are in a drought here and so we are in the process of looking for hay to buy. They are bethleham donkeys and they are pony size. what kind of advise can you give us about feeding. The previous owner fed them cattle cubes. His property was pretty scarce of grass and shade. We have about 4 acres of grass and shade. Any info you could help with we would appreciate it.

      Hi Sheri,

      I would do my best to look for the lowest carb and sugar hay you can find. Donkeys are very easy keepers and need to be on low sugar and low carb hay if you cant find low sugar hay soaking will work.
      Take a look at the safergrass site for more information.
