Do donkeys have different needs?

For any of you with donkeys, or thinking of getting a donkey, this article from Donkey Time is a really good read. A great summary of the different needs donkeys have to horses or ponies. Very informative, but enjoyable too. Recommended! They also gave us an unexpected mention which of course we really appreciate – thank you Donkey Time.

As mentioned in the article, Donkeys have not evolved to live on our lush green fields, so often need restricted diets. Eazigrazer hay feeder works just as well for donkeys as horses, so maybe it could be just the thing to keep your Donkey happy! Just make sure you get a regulator with holes small enough for those little donkey feet.
