Owning a donkey is most rewarding, however, during your donkey ownership you may come across things that were unexpected, or unknown to you. The Donkey Care Handbook acts as a companion for all your donkey care questions.

Do you know how much space a donkey needs? What does a donkey eat? How can I create the perfect donkey environment? How much does it cost to keep a donkey?

This guide also includes information on keeping your donkey healthy and avoiding illness and is an essential reference for both novice and experienced donkey care givers.

Or, if you’re looking for information on something in particular, you can find our quick guides for donkey owners helpful
