Summer Haircuts for the Donkeys

As the summer days in the Northeast become more hot and humid, it’s important to be sure all the animals on my farm are as comfortable as possible.

Yesterday was very steamy, so it was the perfect opportunity to give my donkeys a good summer haircut, and to remove extra coat leftover from this past winter. Not only would this help keep them cooler, but it would also prevent their coarse fur from matting.

Here are some photos from my donkeys’ “spa” treatments.
