Buy this book!

I would suggest this audible for donkey enthusiasts-whether they be beginners with donkeys or experienced. Not many people know donkeys--and Dion Rosser has taken the time to ask professional donkey trainers the key aspects to how they train and work with donkeys to be successful. Great information, stories, and knowledge in this book!

Really great guide!!!

This audible is a good overview of history, behavior, and care. My only recommendation is to also check with your vet to ensure what you are doing is right for your donkey about worming and feed. For the beginner, it is a great book to know the breed and behavior.

we learned a lot from the book

This is the most helpful book out there for the care, feeding, discipline, and overall all-around instructional guidebook on the subject. Factual, interesting, and set up for the chance to the very serious student of these animals. We have some little burro's and we gained a lot from the book

informative book by Dion Rosser

Extra an excellent, educational handbook by Dion Rosser. A must-book if you are thinking of getting donkeys. Wasn't much help for working with wild burros, but good for overall donkey info, particularly concerning diet.

Wonderful,

When I got tired of miniature and large donkeys this book protected me. It is about as perfect as you can get and the knowledge is best. It is humorous and you can't help falling in love with those wonderful little creatures and their very strange and stoic natures.

Comprehensive

This audible has a lot of nice data about Donkeys, but there is also a lot of "fluff". If (like me) you just needed the down and dirty aspects of getting and retaining a donkey there may be better books out there. There is a ton of history and breed knowledge in here.
