Help My Donkey Has A Bald Spot

Resource: Caring for long ears

Donkeys evolved from the desert. Donkeys fur and hooves do not like to stay wet.

Seems like spring is the time of the year our donkeys need the most help with the itchy fur and they are more prone to sores and need us humans to be checking them over each and every day.

Donkeys, with their longer hair, are also more susceptible to rain rot than horses. “If there’s a lot of rain in the fall and no shelter, donkeys may get this skin problem,” Sewell says. “Clumps of hair fall out, and bald patches develop.” 
Make sure your donkey does not have lice.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

    My lovely pet has an itchy spot too! Spring is in the air (at least up here), and it is bothering all the beautiful beasts!

      Rocket Man is not having any problems this year it was last year. 🙂 I like to share old stories to help people with their donkeys. Only lasted a few days and fur started growing back 🙂

    I just cam across this little mini donkey with the all on your page. I just got a mini donkey. Her name is MINNIE. She looks EXACTLY LIKE this gal! All the fat pockets are in the same exact place. Is this YOUR donkey? It would be great if I could find some history on the one I just acquired.

      Hi Jody, This is Rocket Man before I started testing my hay and using the slow feeder. Mini’s do best when living with another mini for diet reasons and for health in general. If you need help I am here to support you. My website is and my e-mail is Rocket Man turns 20 this summer and he came to us obese. I can now say proudly he is much healthier and when we move to our new farm where he will live with another mini he will get more fit.
