I had a great experience with this donkey. Myself and my family got him and his brother because we had some hilly, unruly land that needed to be kept trimmed. They are both very gentle animals, and more affectionate than I had thought. Both he and his brother like to follow us around the garden when we're doing outdoor chores.
They are easy to feed and eat mostly grass, hay and occasionally a little bread.
They tend to choose one spot as their 'toilet' so cleaning up after them isn't too difficult. It makes for some great manure!
The cons of these animals are that they are very loud and their braying might disturb both you and your neighbours. However, they understand night-time and do not bray begin braying until morning, unless something is wrong.
They can be playful and will nip at you if you're not paying attention. They don't intend to hurt but it can be startling if you're not expecting it.
They are smart and curious animals. They can figure out simple locking mechanisms and let themselves out for a stroll if they so choose.
