Evening feed time

This is just a blogpost about routine matters, a video of the evening donkey feed. When I come home from work the first thing I look for is guilty donkey faces: I can always tell when they have been up to something. Sure enough, today we have guilty faces and they have ruined another piece of my handiwork…

One thing I am wondering about at the moment is the donkeys’ diet. Are they eating too much? When they are lying down full-length in the sun they look like little furry zeppelins…

Compared with local Spanish donks they look fat. When I see photos of the Donkey Sanctuary donkeys, there doesn’t seem much difference. I’m not sure. Any comments?


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.

    You need to check for a roll of fat along the top of the neck. Should be plumpish, but not more than you can get your hand around

    Thanks, Barbara. I have been down to the field and grabbed all their necks, much to the donks’ surprise. By that measure they are not overweight.
