Clipping the Donkeys for Summer

As spring turns to summer and days get more hot and humid, it’s important that all the animals on my farm are kept as comfortable as possible.

Last week, Dolma and Helen from my stable crew gave the Sicilian donkeys a good summer clipping to remove all the extra coat left over from this past winter. Not only will this help keep them cooler during the coming season, but it will also prevent their coarse fur from matting.

Enjoy these photos - and be sure to check back again Monday for an equine surprise.
