If you do, I have a few questions for you. A lady in town is giving up her pet donkey due to her poor health, she is no longer able to care for it. DH says this is the wrong time of year to be thinking about getting a donkey because we are in a drought and hay is going to be in very short supply this winter. The neighbor that leases our pastures and cuts hay from them told us that he is short 480 round bales right now. Anyhow, can you give me an idea of what you feed your donkey through the winter and an estimate of the cost? Also, how do donkeys do with free range chickens? Other than the chickens, the donkey would have cows as his pasture buddies most of the year. At any other time of the year the donkey will have 80 acres of good forage to live on, sharing with the cows.
