The only reason my mini donk gets any grain is because he looks so forlorn watching everybody else get theirs. He honostly doesn't need it. Most will get fat on just grass hay. When he does get grain, it's litterly like 1/2 of a cup (mesuring cup, not grain scoop)
Hay only for our donks. They don't need grain, if anything its going to do more damage then good. Hay is what they are going to "burn" to keep themselves warm in the winter, not grain. If anything more hay is the way to go. Maybe put it in a slow feed hay net so he doesn't make a mess of it. Then he will eat what he pulls out instead of pushing it all round.
If it makes you sleep sounder at night knowing he got grain look into grain for minis. I think Purina makes one. Posted via Mobile Device
