Our Donkeys


Bella, Yogi and Marley

Also called burros and asses, are found throughout the world. They are members of the Equidae family, which also includes horses and zebras. They look a lot like their equine cousins, but have long, floppy ears and tend to be stockier than horses or zebras. Male donkeys are called jacks and females are called jennets or jennies.

Donkeys are very social and usually live in a group called a herd. Donkeys are grazers that typically like to eat grass, though they also eat shrubs.

Our donkeys are very sociable and love lots of attention, Bella is mum to all of our Donkeys and is very much in charge of them all, she is dark in colour with a white nose, Yogi is her first born he has a thicker coat and when he came to us looked like a big fluffy bear, hence the name Yogi, then along came Marley he has a black nose like his mum, then finally Tinker she is our youngest donkey and can be a bit cheeky and knock your wheelbarrow over for you!

The donkeys are a very popular part of the farm and are groomed and walked by the students regularly.
