Have you ever taken the time to get to know a donkey? They are really fascinating animals. Check out these fun facts: 1. A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size 2. Donkeys can see all four of their feet at the same time 3. Donkeys can vary hugely in size, from 26 inches to 68 inches tall 4. A donkey's bray can carry up to 60 miles in the desert 5. Donkeys have incredibly efficient digestive systems, utilising 95% of what they eat 6. Donkeys don't like being in the rain for long periods as their fur is not waterproof 7. Donkeys have been used as working animals for at least 5,000 years and they are still a lifeline to families in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and South America 8. Healthy donkeys can live well into their 50s 9. A blind donkey will often bond with a seeing donkey who will act as their guide 10. Donkeys can be a calming influence on other animals 11. Donkeys are very clever with a keen sense of curiosity 12. Donkeys are not stubborn but can be reluctant to do anything that might be unsafe - they consider situations before deciding what to do 13. Donkeys are extremely nimble and can cross tricky terrain 14. Donkeys are very sociable and form strong bonds - you will often see pairs of best friends within a herd 15. Donkeys are different to horses in their physiology, communication, thinking and behaviour - they do their best with other donkeys as companions #themoreyouknow #funfacts #animalfacts #barnanimals #amazingpets #donkeysofinstagram #largeanimalvet #donkeyoftheday #patientoftheday #4leggedkids #furbaby #animallovers #petphotography #picoftheday #veterinarymedicine #vettechlife #whitemountainanimalhospital #drolealcumbrac #pinetoparizona

He later moved to Arizona where he completed his high school education. He joined the Navy in 1964 during the Vietnam era to avoid being drafted into the Army. There, he worked in an intelligence gathering position against the Russians, Chinese, and Northern Vietnamese. After 10 years of service, Dr. Evans decided to return to school. He attended Iowa State University, where received an Honors degree in Animal Science, and in 1981, a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He went into college with 3 children, and had 5 by the time of graduation. Currently, he is up to 19 grandchildren! Dr. Evans practiced for one year here in the White Mountains before moving to Mesa to work at an emergency clinic. He then started his own mixed animal practice in Gilbert, Arizona. He owned and operated Gilbert Animal Hospital until selling in 2013 to semi-retire and begin his work as a relief veterinarian. He currently lives with his wife in Pinedale, AZ, where they spend time gardening, traveling, and enjoying the mountains.
