The Donkey Society of Victoria (DSV) was formed in 1972 by a small group of donkey enthusiasts, and over the last 30 years the society has grown to become one of the biggest and most recognised donkey societies in Australia. 

Members of the Society range from people who enjoy involvement in the many activities the society offers, to others who are mostly interested in the newsletters and information about donkeys. Some don’t even own a donkey! In fact, the only criteria for membership is to be someone who loves donkeys or mules.

We are proud to announce our next online Zoom seminar for DSV members featuring Megan Hensley of Holistic Hooves (https://www.holistichooves.com)

“Holistic Hooves” takes a wellness approach that you won’t find with many hoof care providers.  Megan Hensley, AKA: The Donkey Farrier is about serving donkeys in a positive and educated light.  She is equal parts farrier, educator and welfare advocate. There’s a beautiful intention to Megan that strives to improve lives, both human and donkey, through education, inspiration, empowerment and resources.

This Zoom Seminar is available for financial members of the Donkey Society of Victoria and is free to attend. Only DSV members will be able to have direct access to the questions / answer session but the meeting will be live streamed on the DSV Facebook page for those that can’t make the meeting and for non members 

The seminar will be held on Saturday December 19th at 3PM (AEST).  Details on how to join the Zoom seminar will be sent to DSV members via email.
