The donkey’s reputation of being stubborn is based on its intelligence and caution. Unlike horses donkeys do not run away. Since they originate from the mountains they freeze when they are in danger. Therefore they cannot be pushed forward in a situation where they see imminent danger. Due to stress their obstinacy will only grow bigger. Once their confidence has been won they again show their friendly and docile character.
Our donkeys are always very glad to go for a walk. They appreciate a bit of action and adventure and will soon become part of your group. They adore being stroked, brushed and spoilt. So as not to be overloaded, our donkeys carry a maximum weight of 40 kg.
Setting off with a donkey is a special way of travelling: it is impossible to hurry up ! And so it is better to take a break at noon so that the donkey can graze.
The morning of your departure we will explain to you how you can load and unload the donkey, how you have to take care of it and what you have to pay attention to during the trip.
If there are any questions or doubts, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will gladly give you more information by telephone or e-mail.
