More About This Title The Healthy Donkey


The Healthy Donkey provides a fascinating background to the history of this iconic animal and introduces potential owners to everything they need to know about donkey guardianship, with useful information about diet, bedding, and grooming. Those already familiar with donkeys will also find invaluable information about addressing behavioral issues using patience, kindness, and bodywork through Tellington TTouch techniques—a non-invasive system of touch and massage designed to bring about calmness, trust, and confidence. Case studies show how these techniques can be used to address a variety of problems.
