The Perfect Pet
From the time this little long ear baby is born, they are constantly seeking attention and wanting to give you love. Affectionate, soft, cuddly, adorable bundles of fur.
Miniature Donkeys are easily trained to do tricks, pull carts, and with smaller children, ride. They are quite social little companions. They love their herd mates as well as their owner. We recommend that they go in pairs just for that reason.
Know What You Are Looking For....
Imagine a miniature donkey, with the characteristics of a loving, playful puppy, coupled with the ability to pull a cart or let children ride around on its back. Better yet, what if this hardy pet could live on just a handful of feed and survive up to 35 years or more, meaning that your children and your grandchildren might enjoy its company? With all of these admirable traits, it’s no wonder that miniature donkeys are steadily gaining popularity. ... more information
