We have prepared the following factsheets to provide guidance on the various topics which seem to arise on a regular basis.

It's difficult to include everything people want to know, but we have done our best to cover as much as possible.

The fact sheets can either be downloaded or printed. If you do not have a printing facility, then please contact us and we will send out what you require in the post. 

Available fact sheets are:

  • Stabling & Housing
  • Land Management
  • Keeping Your Donkey Healthy
  • Feeding a Donkey
  • Foot Care
  • Dental Care
  • To Breed or Not
  • The Elderly Donkey
  • Donkeys & The Law
  • Veterinary & Farrier Listing  

If you have a specific question or enquiry, then please feel free to contact us in any way which is easiest for you and we will aim to provide the answer or information you require.

If there is a particular subject which interests you, it may be easier for you to consider attending one of our welfare courses. These are held as informal groups with a maximum of 10 people and include both theory with a degree of "hands on" tuition. We encourage attendees to make use of our Trainer's expertise whilst there, it being one of the few occasions such help will be on hand.

All courses need to be pre-booked and FREE. However, if you would like to make a donation towards our work, it would be much appreciated.
