Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys for Sale

Miniature Mediterranean We are very proud to be able to offer Miniature Mediterranean donkeys for sale together with part-bred Miniature Mediterraneans. You can be assured that these are of exceptional quality due to the care we take and the constant improvement we attain in the development of our strong breeding lines.

Please get in touch with any questions or requirements you may have. The miniature Mediterranean donkey is a true breed, a native to the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Due to their size, miniature donkeys were used to turn grinding stones for grain inside the peasant houses. They were also used to carry water from village wells and supplies into the mountains for shepherds.

There are 18th century wood pictures showing these small donkeys blindfolded and attached to the grain mill, walking in endless circles. Miniature Mediterranean donkeys stand between 30" and 36" high. Two miniature donkeys will require a minimum of one acre of land. Donkeys are herd animals and a single donkey is a very lonely donkey and is unlikely to thrive on its own.

We have Miniture Mediterranean donkeys for sale, please see our donkeys sale page for more information

You cannot buy love

You can't buy loyalty so they say
I bought it though the day I bought you.
You cannot buy friendship, tried and true
Well just the same I bought that too.
I made my bid and on the spot bought love and affection, the whole job lot.
So all in all the purchase price was pretty small
I bought a simple trusting heart
That gave devotion from the start
If you think these things are not for sale buy a brown eyed donk with a rope like tail!!!

Donkey Sales Testimonials...

  • 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

  • Stanley the Second

    I have just purchased my first donkey, a pure bred miniature male called Stanley the Second! He is a credit to Zoie and has a wonderful temperament and my girls absolutely adore him.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these charming little donkeys to anyone for a pet, companion or for breeding. And the only place I will buy my next one will be Donkeys of Wales ! Don't bother wasting your time with any other breeders, just go straight to the best! - Jake Vangrove, Northern Ireland.

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

  • 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.
