About this book

Donkeys make wonderful pets and there is a growing interest in owning them. The first piece of advice most prospective owners receive is to "buy a good book", but books on donkey care have been difficult to come by since the first edition of Looking After a Donkey sold out some years ago. (The only other book available is an American publication not aimed at people in this country.)

Dorothy Morris's original text has been completely revised and updated and is now illustrated by new colour photographs throughout. Looking After a Donkey gives all the facts and advice anyone could possibly need if they own a donkey or are thinking of getting one (and they will certainly want to after reading Looking After a Donkey).

It begins with how to choose a donkey – temperament being the most important factor – up to the points that a show judge would look for. It explains how to make the donkey comfortable, describing the accommodation, shelter and the space they donkey will need, and how to feed, groom and take care of him. Then it covers how to train the donkey to be ridden or driven, how to show him in the increasingly popular donkey shows, and how to keep him fit and healthy. Breeding is covered too, starting with making the decision in the first place. Everything owners need to know about – brood mares, stallions, studs, care of the mare and her foal, and the weaning process – is all here.
