Miniature Donkey

Say Hello to our Mini Donkeys: Primrose, Petunia & Cosmos

Located in our barnyard area, these mini donkeys are able to be seen hanging out with our bronze turkey and our friendly goats. You might even get a nice honking greeting from these barnyard residents! Primrose is the mother of both Petunia and Cosmos. Mini donkeys are originally from the Mediterranean islands and brought to the US back in the 1920s. They are very popular domesticated animals that can help with labor work and also make great pets.
