Bath Time for My Five 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 the dust, which provides great insulation and protection from extreme cold and heat.

Here at my farm, my five donkeys, Rufus, Clive, Billie, Jude “JJ” Junior, and Truman “TJ” Junior, are no different - they, too, “live to roll.” However this week, the donkeys also got bathed - each one was thoroughly washed, soaped, and rinsed. My stable crew does this often during the warmer months to keep them clean and healthy.

Enjoy these fun photos of “bath time.”
