    Description

    Donkeys originate from the semi-arid parts of the world, but are now kept in a variety of different environments, although they are rarely found in the humid tropics. Obesity (overweight) is the biggest problem facing donkeys kept in temperate areas of the world where food is relatively abundant, and of good quality. These donkeys do relatively little work, often being kept as companion animals. Emaciation (underweight) is the biggest problem facing donkeys kept in the hotter tropical areas where food is in short supply, and of poor quality for many months of the year. These donkeys often work for at least part of each day in transport or tillage activities. Donkeys working in urban areas, where there is less opportunity for grazing, can be more at risk of malnutrition than those working in rural areas.
    This booklet is a guide to two easy techniques, which can be used to assess the extent to which work, nutrition, disease, management or other environmental factors affect the donkey.
