Please do not feed farm animals without permission. Our donkeys and horses are on a serious diet.
Sadly most people just do not understand throwing apples, pears, bread, grass clippings can make the equine sick and yes even kill the equine. Colic, founder, cushings, laminitis, insulin resistance, abscesses, rotting hooves are all part of over eating and or eating the wrong diet in domestication.
Education creates awareness and awareness will save a life!

Apple Season has arrived! As great as they may be for humans this is not great for the domesticated Donkey, Mule or Horse. In fact this may cause DEATH from Colic and/or a huge amount of stress, tears, vet cost or even burying the beloved equine (Donkey, horse or mule).
Never feed grass clippings or bread to your horse, donkey or mule. PLEASE NEVER FEED ANOTHER ANY ANIMAL THAT IS NOT YOUR ANIMAL. Some animals have a form of insulin resistance, most must have a slow change of diet or they can founder, hoof rots out abscess or colic or worse die.
