A beautifully illustrated story of the Nativity. He was just an ordinary donkey, but on his back he carried a miracle. He carried the Virgin Mary to Bethlehem on the night she gave birth. Along the way he dreamed he was carrying a city, a ship, a fountain, and a rose. He dreamed he was carrying a lady full of heaven–and he was. Barbara Helen Berger’s glowing artwork and lyrical text perfectly convey the beauty and majesty of the story of the Nativity.

Donkeys are built with stocky, sturdy bodies. Serving humans for thousands of years, donkeys have fulfilled many tasks. In helping out on the farm, transporting goods, siring mules, keeping horses company, guarding sheep, and even being kept as pets, donkeys are very capable mammals. As beasts of burden, donkeys have adapted much and are valued for their ability to live in the desert. With their tough stomach and ability to efficiently retain water from food, donkeys surpass horses. Famous for aiding soldiers during times of war and for their overall dependability, the donkey population is increasing and is appreciated.

Addressing a common misconception, this handbook explains that donkeys are not horses and that the two kinds of animals are genetically and anatomically quite different. Carefully laying out the special physiological and environmental needs of donkeys, the book educates owners, would-be owners, and breeders about how best to care for their charges while also providing clear technical information on donkey anatomy and behavior, diseases, breeding, and general husbandry. Written with affection for donkeys and their antics, the book goes a long way toward preventing common and sometimes dire mistakes in caring for these interesting animals.
Friendly, dependable, intelligent, and easy to care for, donkeys are increasingly prized by small-scale farmers, horse lovers, and animal enthusiasts. Already, there are hundreds of thousands of donkeys and mules in the U.S., and their population is growing steadily. Donkeys not only pull carts, carry riders, and tote gear for hikers, but they also make terrific stable companions and livestock guardians, and they are renowned for their skills in transport, raising water, milling, and farm tillage. They’re also gentle with children and the elderly, making them a popular therapy animal and family pet.

The Donkey Companion offers detailed information about different breeds and types; provides tips for finding and selecting the right animal; explains donkeys’ daily care and health requirements; and guides readers through the nuances of training, riding, driving, and breeding.
