Donkey

Originally the donkey came from Africa and Asia, hot dry countries where they roamed in their wild herds before they were tamed and used by man.  It is believed that the donkey was brought to this country by the Romans, who used them as working animals.

Donkeys come in all shapes, sizes, colouring and temperament. They have eyelashes to die for, long thick and dark, and ears that tend to be hairy.  They can have stiff upright manes or long manes. Donkeys are naturally clean and generally appreciate being groomed, but they also love a dust patch to roll in!
