Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys | Standard Guard Donkeys

Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys

Miniature donkeys are native to the Mediterranean Islands. They were first imported into the United States in 1929. They make great pets that can also guard goats, sheep and poultry against coyotes, foxes and stray dogs. They are good companion animals and can have excellent therapeutic value around handicapped kids and elderly. Miniature donkeys are around 36 inches in height.

Miniature donkeys come in gray, brown, black, sorrel, white, spotted, roan and some have the Jerusalem Cross on their back. They are very tolerant of heat and cold as long as they have a shelter and are fed properly. Miniature donkeys, just as all donkeys are herd animals, and to avoid undue stress and loneliness, they should not be kept by themselves, but with another miniature donkey or another suitable companion animal.

Miniature donkeys are great guard donkeys and just as the standard donkeys, they work better in pairs or in small groups distributed in different pastures with your goats or sheep.

Standard Guard Donkeys

Donkeys are guard animals by nature. They despise stray dogs, wolves and coyotes (They are friendly to your own pets because they somehow know the difference). They will attack to kill if predators ever enter their territory. As a result your herd of cows or flock of goats is guarded and protected against such intruders. There have been instances of donkeys killing mountain lions too.

Donkeys will run with cattle very comfortably, because they are pack animals. They don’t like to be alone; therefore it’s advisable to always have at least two donkeys together so they can work as a team.

Either Jennies or castrated males will keep your property predator free. Stud Jacks, are not a good choice, as they can be very aggressive and not reliable. Predators quickly learn donkey territory by smelling their scent all over the area and will avoid it.
