Donkey - horses for sale

Though very different in appearance and nature, donkeys are members of the same family as horses, the equids, or equidae. They were first domesticated thousands of years ago. They are often longer-lived than horses, which is an important point for those considering whether to buy a donkey. Historically they were used as working animals, but now when people sell a donkey it is often to join a family as a much-loved companion. Donkeys still need as much care as horses and so to buy a donkey represents just as big a commitment. When deciding to sell a donkey, it's important to make that clear.

Uses and characteristics of donkeys

Perhaps it's because they've been working with humans for so many centuries that donkeys make such excellent family members. They are quick learners, too. On the whole, they are gentle and calm, though young donkeys, like all young animals, can be boisterous. An older, more experienced animal may be better for newcomers considering whether to buy a donkey for the family. When preparing to sell a donkey, it's important to explain the animal needs plenty of time to settle in their new home as they are less reactive than horses. That means it’s not always clear how they are feeling. Getting the perfect match is what counts, and so anyone planning to buy a donkey or sell a donkey needs to put the animal's needs and nature first.

Origin and history of breeding donkeys

In 2010, DNA research confirmed that the ancestor of the domesticated donkey came from north Africa and not from one of the other populations of wild ass found across the ancient world. Specifically, the first domesticated donkeys came from Nubia, the region to the south of Egypt. As far back as 5,000 years ago, these hard-working animals were contributing to the economies of Egypt and Mesopotamia by carrying goods on their backs. Images of donkeys appear in the tombs of ancient Egyptian officials.

Domesticated donkeys began to be used by societies all over the world, mostly for pack work but also as ridden and driven animals. They have always been popular mounts for small children, particularly on seaside holidays.

Donkeys in equestrianism

When planning to buy a donkey for driving, or for children to ride, it is important to choose one that is large and strong enough, as well as having the right temperament. Donkeys are often thought to be small animals, though in fact, they range in height from miniatures to the giant Poitou donkeys of France, which were used to breed mules.

Often breeders who sell a donkey are knowledgeable specialists who can give advice. It’s unusual to buy a donkey to keep on its own, as they need the company of others of their species. They can bond closely with ponies as well and make excellent companion animals. Showing and turn-out classes for donkeys are popular and donkeys are increasingly participating in equine agility classes.

Donkey facts and famous donkeys

Most donkeys are the size of small ponies, between 10 hh and 13 hh (101cm – 132cm). They can have many different coat colours and most have the distinctive dorsal (back) stripe that was a feature of their wild ancestors.

Domesticated donkeys came from hot, arid areas and can be less hardy than horses. They need good shelter in winter and grass that is not too rich, to avoid laminitis. They become very fond of their humans and look forward to greeting them each day with a noisy bray! In Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, Quixote’s companion rides a donkey called Dapple.
