I have taken over the care of 2 minature donkeys about 10 months ago. This is our first winter together. I live in South Louisiana. The grass is dieing but there will not be any frost or snow that sits on the ground. The person who had the donleys before me told me that they only gave hay on nights that dropped below freezing (a couple times per year). She sid that they will forage on grass that is dieing and be fine. They two minis are in about .75 acres and were not able to keep it all down this summer. It is plenty for them. I was giving them about 1 slice of hay per day and they were tearing it up quickly. I felt like I was not giving them enough so I called the past owner to discuss it and she assured me they were just greedy and they were not actually hungry and to stop feeding them so much because thye will just get fat with the hay and the grass. They are healthy appearing but not fat. Any thoughts on to provide feed or not provide feed? Thanks.
