Bathing My Donkeys

For donkeys, there's nothing quite like rolling in a fresh patch of dirt. And, while rolling on the ground helps to scratch their backs, it's also a natural behavior for donkeys to cover themselves in dust, which provides great insulation and protection from extreme heat and cold.

Here at my farm, my three Sicilian donkeys, Rufus, Clive and Billie, are no different - they, too, “live to roll”. And, during these warm summer months that means they must be bathed often - about once every couple of weeks.
