Meet the Donkeys at Monk Park Farm

Audio Description Coming Soon

Donkeys are a hoofed mammal and come from the same family as horses.

Over the last 7000 years, they have mainly been used as a working animal.

Donkeys are loyal and loving creatures.

An adult male donkey is a ‘Jack’, an adult female donkey is called a ‘Jenny’ and a young donkey is called a ‘Foal’.

A Jenny is usually pregnant for between 11 – 14 months and gives birth to 1 foal.

Their diet is predominately grass. They also receive supplementary hay and feed over the winter when there is less pasture for grazing.

Please do not feed the donkeys as they are on a special diet!
