Our Donkeys

ernie_floppyErnie and Floppy are brothers and have always lived together; they came to Murton in November 2012. They love chasing each other around their field and meeting all our visitors.

We are very grateful to Arlene and Remo Medinelli for their generous and substantial donation towards the purchase of Ernie & Floppy, without which we would have been unable to secure these amazing animals.

Donkeys in the UK are mostly a grey dun colour, however some can be brown or black. Donkeys, like horses are measured in hands and can stand between 10 and 14 hands high. They are normally friendly and inquisitive animals.
