One of the things I didn’t talk about in our latest podcast Life With Donkeys, From Simon to Fanny and Lulu are a donkey’s lips.
They are incredibly soft and use them to reach out and take treats and eat grass. I love the feel of the donkey lips on my hand as they take a treat from me. They use them in a similar way that an elephant uses her trunk.
I didn’t know I got this photo of Lulu’s lips reaching out for grass until I looked at the picture. It really shows how they use their lips to reach, feel and grab. They’re also very sensitive and can distinguish between grasses.
