Just recently acquired a 4 month old mini donkey and a 4 and a half month old Nigerian dwarf goat. I have so many questions and need all the advice I can get!
I love Virginia! Hello from Colorado! My biggest question is, what should I be feeding a 4 month old mini donk? He is currently on a high fiber mixed hay and foal pellets. He also eats grass and other weeds but I'm trying to limit that to prevent colic. Because he is so young, does he need a milk replacer? Thank you!!Welcome from VA. Ask away.
Is he attacking or just being mouthy? I found that weanling donks are way mouthier than any foal I ever met. It is a natural way for them.to explore their environment and boundaries too. If you would like to know how I corrected my baby donkey without doing physical or emotional damage just let me know and I can walk you through it.
