Horse Worming Lost Donkey...Interesting Holiday

Ok..so we had a donkey sleep over. There was a lost donkey and he ended up staying at our house. We put him in a small pen...but he went under the bottom wire. So we built him a very small pen out of some left over no-climb horse fence. Well it wasn't no-climb donkey fence because he jumped or crawled thrashed over it. He kept trying to get in with my horse who is very territorial and was trying to kill him. Well regardless he got in there and pood a little bit.

I had wormed my horse last week...but should I worm him again since the donkey was of unknown origins. Unsure of how long the poo was in there but Im sure my horse smelled it because he has a poo fascination. Should I worm him again? I had wormed him with the cheapo Ivermectin.

BTW...the donkey found his home. Turns out he had just been weaned and bought by a family down the street. I guess he was wondering around looking for his herd. "Are you my mother?" What a wild animal.

If you got the donkey's poo up within a day or so, the risk of parasite infection from the donkey is very slight. I would just wait and deworm again when your fecal exams next indicate a need.

Aww that's kind of cute actually! Makes things interesting for sure. :)

As for the worming, I don't know! If it were me I'd just wait and go on as scheduled..But I don't know much about worming myself. I just do it on the schedule.

The donkey was adorable...he must have been about 5ish months old. To bad he was crazy. My poor husband is almost worse than me when it comes to taking in the hopeless. He was out there trying to wrangle the donkey for 3 hours before we got it cornered in our trailer. The stupid thing was about to be trampled by my horse and then kept trying to run straight towards our busy FM road!

Aww the poor little thing must have been terrified! What a stinker though! Lol
I'm a sucker for taking in animals as well...I once saved my 4-H beef steer. *hides in the corner*...I just couldn't let him get butchered..hah. Sooo I still have him...like..7(?I think?) years later.
