In April 2020 there was an unfortunate outbreak of ulcerative lymphangitis among the equine populations. In this painful disease caused by bacterial infection, multiple small abscesses and ulcers develop along the lymphatic vessels of the skin. These are commonly seen on the hind limbs, on the chest, and on abdominal and neck skin. The disease proved fatal to a few donkeys. Other affected donkeys and horses responded favourably to treatment.  In April 2020 there was an unfortunate outbreak of ulcerative lymphangitis among the equine populations.

We are all connected There is a link between all species, actions and events on our planet

Different theories exist In chaos theory, the butterfly effect implies that a factor as delicate as the flap of a butterfly's wings can have great effects. The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which leads to large-scale alterations of events.  Related to this is the domino effect or chain reaction which is the cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events. The ripple effect occurs when an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally, like ripples expanding across the water when an object is dropped into it.

Acknowledging donkeys as sentient beings will add to the relationship between the animals and ourselves.

An estimated 59 000 people die from rabies each year. That’s one person every nine minutes of every day, 40% of whom are children living in Asia and Africa. As dog bites cause almost all human cases, we can prevent rabies deaths by increasing awareness through education, and offcourse vaccinating our dogs to prevent the disease.
