From about the time a donkey is 2 years old it is possible to use a burdizzo which does not create an open wound if it is used over a clean cloth and so is less inviting of infection.
Also if the donkey is too mature it may retain the unwanted behaviour of a stallion even after it has been successfully castrated with the burdizzo.
