Fun Donkey Facts

It's like Christmas ahead of time! You may have noticed we recently made a few changes to the Donkey Tree. Keep reading to find out the new treat that I'm so excited about!

We have been working for the last year and a half to update and improve the software that the Donkey Tree was running on. The changes were to streamline the way the software runs and to build an admin to that greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to enter or update a donkey in the Donkey Tree.

These long awaited changes are finally complete and up live on the Donkey Tree website. Yippie! I have been able to go through the backlog of donkey updates that were submitted prior to the middle of August, and have made all of those updates and additions in the Donkey Tree. I will continue to process new submissions every couple of weeks now that I have the new tool to make that job much faster.

Another change that you will notice is that we have changed the format of the Donkey Tree ID numbers. They are now in the format of DT##### instead of I#####. The DT stands for Donkey Tree, and is much easier to distingish than the "I" which was easily getting confused with a number 1. The number portion of their Donkey Tree IDs has not changed. Just the letter prefix.

Now for the fun part! This is like Christmas time! We have added a cool new Fun Donkey Facts section to Donkey Tree. Here we will be adding new statistics we have gathered through the data in the Donkey Tree. The first donkey fact to be unvailed is Donkey Colors. Check out the cool charts showing the color demographics by donkey size range.

Check back soon for more fun statistics and donkey facts as we add more charts and graphs.
