Investigations have been carried out to elucidate the possible role of the donkey in the epidemiology of African horse sickness (AHS). These studies have shown that despite the absence of pyrexia or other observable clinical signs, donkeys become infected with virulent AHS virus serotype 4 (AHSV 4) and that they develop a viraemia which can persist for at least 12 days, albeit at a comparatively lower titre than that recorded for similarly infected ponies.

Furthermore, the currently available vaccines are developed specifically for horses and therefore may be less efficacious for donkeys, thereby leaving some animals inadequately 'protected'. 0 of infectious bluetongue virus per ml of blood would be sufficient to infect a blood feeding vector Culicoides midge. If this value is similar for AHSV then donkeys must be considered a potential source of virus for insect vectors. It has also been shown here, that the AHSV 4 recovered from an infected, but apparently healthy donkey was lethal for a pony.
