Our Jacks at Stud

Here are details of our high-quality standard jacks - please note that they are not for sale but at stud. All our jacks bring correct conformation and beautiful movement to their offspring and we are proven as being of the highest quality.

We will under no circumstances allow our donkeys to be exploited by over-work. Visitors are always welcome but please make any inquiries/appointments in advance. Donkeys of Wales will endeavour to accommodate all clients' wishes but the best interests of our donkeys are always our priority.

Our Principles

All of our jennies and jacks are handled from birth and have exceptional temperaments. In our experience we have found it better to leave our jacks to run with the jennies in the field because they are then settled and content all the time. It is also the most natural way of doing things.

All our jennies foal down with the jacks which means that the foal gets to know its father in a calm environment.

  • Antony Ford

    Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help and support regarding the purchase of our three little baby Donkeys. After there long journey from Wales up to the Midlands region of England they have settled in a treat and becoming proper little celebrities throughout our village. Having their mothers travelling with them on the journey and staying with us here whilst the babies settle in was a wonderful idea. The Mothers are enjoying their holidays and Syd, Summer & Sky (the babies) are becoming right little characters and are growing in to lovely donkeys. I would strongly recommend Donkeys of Wales, lovely caring people offering wonderful help and support. - Antony Ford Rugby, England
  • Standard Donkeys

    My husband and I recently moved from a city flat to a small holding near Pontypridd. We like animals and wanted to have some to keep the grass down and become part of the family. My husband contacted zoie burton from donkeys of wales. Zoie was quick to respond with some valuable advice and following on from this we purchased two donkeys from her. They have become good friends and part of the family too. I had a few quires along the way regarding looking after the donkeys and their behaviour, where information was not easily accessible on the internet and Zoie was very helpful in offering advice to us. If you are thinking about having a donkey, I would recommend DONKEYS OF WALES.
  • Teddy

    After several phone conversations with Zoie I finally met her and her beautiful donkeys, one donkey kept walking up to me and the upshot was that he came home with us the same day. Teddy is a well balanced full of fun little boy and that is all thanks to Zoie and her dedication and well planned breeding programme. Zoie knows each and every one of her donkeys and can tell you the parentage of each one. I have no hesitation in recommending Zoie and Donkeys of Wales to anyone wanting to own a donkey. - Enid Gwillim Ystradgynlais
  • Barney

    In September 2011 I was searching for a companion for my jenny. I found the perfect soul mate for her - Barney! He has been amazing in every way. I would highly recommend Zoie to anyone who was hoping to purchase a donkey. Zoie has helped me with any query I had, with both of my donkeys, and I know she is only a phone call away. Thank you very much for all your help! - Gabrielle

  • Radio Wales

    hi Zoie, well done on your interview on Radio Wales this morning, you came over really well and it was so nice to hear you talking so enthusiastically about the donkeys. Sorry I haven't been in touch for quite some time. Teddy is 4. this year - where has the time gone? anyway Teddy has been having lessons from Catrin John Wayne horse trainer (look her up on Facebook) we hope to do some nativity and school visits with him, Catrin can't believe how intelligent he is, he's learning so fast, she's been here to work with him a few times and he will soon be going home with her for some intensive training. take care of yourself - Enid Gwillim from Ystradgynlais
  • Snowy And Daisy

    I would highly recommend buying from this lady! I had snowy a white gelding for a year and half he is amazing, he was exactly as described and very good to lead excellent temperament, especially good with children. I then purchased daisy most recently and yet again a beautiful jenny, zoie was extremely honest about her , no problems. Daisy has a personality like you wouldn't believe, both my donkeys are beautiful and will be with me forever!! Snowy the gelding is extremely well known and is rather famous in Merthyr Mawr village, with hundreds of people having photos with him [he likes to pose] . He has also featured in the vale life magazine. The donkeys have a regular flow off visitors both adult and children and both are extremely gentle and very loving. If you want a safe beautiful donkey that is exactly as described then this is your lady. - Mel Merthyr Mawr
  • Christmas Fun Day 2015

    A BIG thank you to donkeys of wales for coming to our Christmas fun day (2015) at the national waterfront museum, Swansea. Zoie and the team were a delight to work with on the build up to the event. On the day there beautiful dinky donkeys stole the show! It was a very busy event (over 2,000 visitors) and we were very impressed at how calm and well behaved the donkeys were.
  • Colette

    Returning to Zoie for a second time to add to my donkey collection, she has made my dream come true in owning a Poitou. Colette is the most special, beautiful girl and has settled into the herd with no problems at all. Zoie's friendliness and honesty is second to none. Thank you xx - Shirley
