Our love of donkeys also began with rescue animals. It all started in 2005 when we took in a 35 year old warmblood horse named Pandur and his companions, Jenny and Rosie, two standard-size donkeys.
We are fortunate to have two quality herd sires. We regularly vaccinate our herds in the spring and fall. We also routinely deworm, using alternating dewormers. We currently have one jenny avalibale.
