Stage 2: Introduction to Donkey Health Care

9 September 2018 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

This one-day training course follows on from the Introduction to Donkey Care (Stage 1) and covers how to manage your donkey to avoid the most common problems and illnesses.

The day will help you decide if donkeys are suitable for your home and what to expect when they arrive and to feel more confident about looking after and handling your donkeys.

Donkeys are not small horses with big ears so even if you have owned horses for 20 years there is so much to learn about the differences between caring for donkeys and horses that attending a course is always an eye-opener.

This course is a great introduction to the wonderful world of donkeys.

The course will cover:

  • Stable and pasture management
  • Signs of ill health
  • Feeding
  • Grooming
  • Handling.

This course is a minimum requirement for anyone wishing to foster donkeys from The Donkey Sanctuary.
