Each of our donkeys has their own individual character and have been selected for their loveable temperaments, nothing makes us happier than seeing the smiles on all that meet them regardless of their age.
Our donkeys have 3-4 months a year off enjoying the long days out playing and grazing in their field, and also have access to a field shelter should they wish to escape the weather.
The welfare of our donkeys is paramount they are regularly visited by the vet and farrier, also all vaccinations and worming are kept upto date to help ensure they are fit, healthy and in 1st class condition. Also no happy working donkey would be complete without lots of love and attention!
