Donkey and Horse Vital Signs, Health and Hoof


TROPHYLILYAGE6AND9CALENDARSHOTOCT2014

A donkey’s normal heartbeat or pulse rate is 35-55 per minute, depending on what it is doing, and its normal temperature is very close to a human’s at 35.8 to 37.5 deg C.  The table below, compiled by the Donkey Sanctuary, gives some of the variations.  A donkey seems to regulate temperature in much the same way as a human, too, as a donkey sweats for the same reasons that a human does.  A feverish donkey is therefore quite easy to detect.

Ways of scoring a donkey’s ‘body condition’ for general health have been devised, but as yet there is no general agreement as to the applicability of such a score.  Those who know donkeys can usually judge quite easily one which is in good condition, i.e. with coat shining, ears and eyes alert, movement easy, ribs and hip bones adequately covered with flesh, and no wounds.

There is another score for ‘wound and foot care’, but on the whole it does not offer more than good observation and common sense can provide.

What are the signs of a donkey being unwell ?

Among the signs of health trouble in a donkey are the following:

·           Fever (body sweat; muzzle hot and dry)

·           Loss of appetite

·           Drooping ears and maybe also a drooping head

·           Coat rough and dull looking

·           Dull eyes

·           Lack of energy and response

·           Frequently lying down

·           Liquid droppings (diarrhea, known as ‘scouring’)

·           Passing no droppings (constipation)

·           Wrong colours of droppings (i.e. signs of blood, although colour does vary a lot according to diet).

Donkeys on the whole do not show their feelings of pain in very obvious ways, but behave as a human would who is called ‘stoical’, i.e. tolerating pain without complaint.  They may make an initial violent movement of avoidance, but after that they become silent and as nearly as possible immobile in the face of pain and/or fear.  Therefore it is sometimes difficult to know when they are suffering acutely, and their behavior may look like ‘stubbornness’ rather than stoicism.  One indicator of pain or fear can be diarrhea, just as in humans.  Since this may also dehydrate the donkey, it will be adding to its problems if it persists.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Soon fall will come and the farm land will go to sleep again. The snow geese will travel by us again and so much more. We look forward to building our home. Perhaps GOD will bless us soon. We continue to pray for the favor to start building our home.

My husband and I have learned to trust GOD stay in faith and be patient. Our builder is a reputable builder here in Sequim, WA we look forward to watching and enjoying the process.

For now we continue to live in the 5th wheel, feed the wild birds, enjoy the sunrises, sunsets and all the animals on the farm. Living in Sequim, WA is a perfect oasis. We love our life. I pray you love your life too. Never Give Up! Trust GOD in Jesus Christ name as he is the alpha and omega, the beginning and end of all things.IMG_7017IRRIGATIONRUN2014APRIL
