  What breed of donkeys do you raise?
The donkeys I raise are miniature donkeys. Preferably, I like donkeys to be under 33" at the whithers. I am specializing in the rare blue-eyed ivory donkeys and have just inported some from the US. So far, I am the only breeder in Canada of the blue-eyed ivories.

  How often to you trim their hair?
I never trim their hair. They will grow a nice thick coat for winter and shed it in the summer. They love to be brushed and this goes a long way to help with the shedding, not to mention it's good for bonding with your donkey.

  Are they are hard keeper like some other animals?
No, Donkeys are relatively easy to keep. They will eat the weeds that horses won't touch and they can get by on more foraging than most animals. Low protein hay (such as 1st cut - cheapest) is the way to go. They need regular hoof trims, annual vaccinations and worming every 3 months. Other than that just a 3-sided shelter, fresh water, a salt block and TONS of LOVE.

  Hi - love donkeys
It is very easy to love donkeys (sometimes just a little too easy). My husband called me the donkey hoarder... HA!
