"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Feeding and Care of Donkey and Mules



This is a free online study program by Dr. Andy K. McLean explaining the anatomy of the donkey and some work on mules.

Excellent program explaining the differences between donkeys, mules and horses.  Dr. McLean, DVM explains clearly why we must be so very careful with feeding our donkeys and mules to ensure they are not obese. Ensure we do not cut feed back to fast, small meals. She explains the body temperature, vitals, how to give pain medication compared to a horse. 

Most importantly she explains how efficient the donkey and mule is with food. She explains the body scoring, physical anatomy differences and much, much more.  Absolutely the best medical information I have found to date.

    Oh I LOVE your blog! We have two mules, Belgian draft that my husband broke to ride (lol, which I can only do if hubby lifts me up on mine). They are a matching set, brother and sister named Red & Minnie (respectively).

      Thank you so very much! I love all the animals in our world but the donkey and mule has captivated my heart so deeply. They are the most abused of all equine and mis-understood. I love horses too and own two at this time, horses dream to be trained the way donkeys demand to be trained. Nice to meet yo and thank you for reading my blog and taking a moment to comment. Melody
