Can donkeys really go for a while without water?


In fact, horse people have often accused beach donkey wranglers of cruelty because their donkeys work a full 8 to 10 hour day without water.

In fact, donkeys, as desert animals, can go for 3 days without water without experiencing any ill effects whatsoever, although they are best off if watered at least once or twice a day (unlike horses, who should always have free choice water and be offered water during the work day if the opportunity arises).

Only one domesticated animal needs less water to be healthy than a donkey: A camel.
