Could be a host of things, wrong in that area. You can put enough shrink wrap on that area, to ice it. Buffered aspirin are fine to give a donkey. If I wasn't inclined to call a vet, Id do both of those things. Slide a small PVC pipe in the corner of it's mouth, and drop the aspirin on the back of his throat.
A tumble bug makes a hard livin. Why? Cause that's just the way be nice is.

I have a mini donkey named Rooster. When I went out this evening to feed he can't put any weight on his front leg and his knee is very swollen. What do you think the cause could be? He won't let me mess with the leg at all
