Donkeys (Equus asinus)
Our donkeys are George, the smaller and naughtier of the pair and Dunstan, who’s more laid-back. Both show true donkey characteristics as they’re stubborn and can kick up a fuss when they want to.
Donkeys originate from Africa, spreading to Asia and on into Europe. Their strength and lack of need to rest to ruminate gives them a strong edge as a breed of animal.
George and Dunstan are in training to give donkey rides and eventually pull a cart. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch them running in the park to stay fit and keep their hooves trim.
Agricultural uses for donkeys:
- Transporting people and heavy goods
