Whoever finds a donkey finds a faithful friend!
On request we sell, throughout Europe, adult donkeys or weaned foals, of various breeds, raised on our farm. They are robust, naturally grown and have a strong but sweet character.
Donkeys are versatile animals and can be used for various purposes: as pets, for carrying out light shooting jobs, for trekking, for breeding for productive purposes, for cleaning meadows, undergrowth, hard-to-reach places, to protect sheep and goats from attacks by dogs, wolves, for assisted therapies (onotherapy), educational farms, etc.
For safety, children should always be accompanied by an adult inside the donkey enclosures. There is a tendency to treat donkeys as if they were little horses, but donkeys are physically and emotionally different.
There are differences in behavior according to gender. By their nature, stallions are unpredictable, especially if there is a female in heat nearby; they are generally not suitable to be handled or ridden by children. Geldings (castrated stallions) are allowed to play in a violent way.
An average donkey weighs 160 kg, can carry even more than 50 kg on its back and can pull up to twice its weight. Lives about 25-30 years, some can go up to 40. They love being in company. If 2 donkeys are a problem, you could accompany him with another animal. Maintaining a donkey requires minimal financial resources to meet its needs (shelter, nourishment, protection, care).
