i know this is the wrong place to put this and i posted on backyard herds but i only got 1 response i know a lot of you on this website have donkeys and i would like your opinion on this subject! i am getting a donkey as a livestock guardian for my sheep and i was wondering what are some important things in keeping a donkey. i also have a couple of questions. 1. can a donkey survive on just bermuda grass and weeds while it is growing good? 2. how much hay does a standard jenny eat during the fall and winter 3. how often do you trim the hooves of donkeys 4. The donkey will be kept on about 2 and half acres of pasture with hair sheep ewes. is this okay 3. i am using electric polywire in 5 strands is this okay for donkeys? i am hoping no predators will get in through the electric polywire i am going to try to set it up really well. But just in case i want a donkey there to protect my ewes and newborn lambs from dogs, coyotes etc.
