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.
Bald patches on donkeys
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!
