News on the Farm...

The donkeys have all had their dental checks-ups for the year and there were quite a few of them that needed work.  Donkeys teeth erupt through their gums throughout their lifetime and  therefore the teeth need to be floated (leveled out) and the sharp edges or spurs have to be removed so they do not cut into the donkeys gums.  The donkey is sedated in order for Dr. Lennie to get in to their mouths with the drill.  It takes about 30 minutes for each dental treatment and then the donkey is held safely in the barn until their sedation has worn off.
All of the 14 donkeys that arrived in August and September needed extensive dental work which always adds to our cost of care for the new arrivals.  If you would like to help out with dental care, just click here & hit the "donate" button.  

Healthy & Happy Donkeys

A few of our donkeys seem to be having some stomach troubles right now. This time of year the donkeys tend to not want to drink as much water as they need and this causes digestive problems.  Timothy Sr. wasn't feeling well on the weekend but was up again and raring to go on Sunday morning. Rob was very happy to see him enjoying his breakfast meal!
