A concern we frequently receive is about donkeys that are tethered in fields without any shelter or water. It's very difficult for many owners to put up a shelter as they move their donkeys a lot and the ground is often rocky.
However, one of our Outreach owner's used his imagination and came up with a very unique mobile shelter for his young donkey. Using an old truck, he attached an extended roof and installed a water tank in the back to supply an automatic water trough.
When he needs to move his donkey to a different area to graze, he simply drives the truck to the new site!
His donkey has a constant supply of clean water, shade if he wants it and even the neck tether that is used is comfortable for him as it fits well and is covered in soft strong plastic tubing to prevent rubbing. The donkey is on a long tether so can get plenty of exercise and, although the owner's designs may seem strange, the result in one very happy little donkey!
