Barefoot donkeys:

My donkeys are unshod and will remain barefoot donkeys, for sound reasons that will be explained here.  Thanks to farrier Brian Collyer who is local to me in Finestrat, I have learned about the importance of keeping equines barefoot and I would like to encourage further discussion on this principle.  If anyone cares to comment on this, I would be very interested to hear all views.

Ragwort:

Are we being unfair to ragwort?  How many equines actually ingest enough ragwort to be poisoned by it?  Some useful discussion of ragwort here: http://www.ragwortfacts.com/

Dental care:

The Donkey Sanctuary provides a very good PDF file on all aspects of donkey dental care:
