Activities:

We offer the opportunity to take part in stable management. By giving you the responsibility of assisting us with taking care of our precious donkeys, whilst doing so you will start to understand their behaviour and bond with them!

You can assist with changing their bedding, as well as grooming the donkeys to ensure they’re looking and feeling their best. You can also assist with feeding the donkeys..its great fun! 

We believe that stroking, massaging and grooming is a great way to come into contact with our donkeys and build your confidence with them and the donkeys love it!

You can learn how to put a headcollar on your favourite  donkey and we can then take him for a walk around the paddock or field.

Spend quality time with our little boys!

Donkey time sessions range from an hour to 4 hours depending on your requirements. These sessions are aimed at people of all ages and abilities and no prior donkey experience required!

Learning:

You learn valuable skills that can translate into real vocational qualifications AQA’s if you wish. It is amazing how quickly you will understand what makes each donkey happy, its a joy to behold!!

You will want to visit the boys again and again..believe me! If you think donkey time is something you would enjoy please contact us today.
