How we breed our miniature donkeys

Aras de los Olmos is a village in La Serranía region in Valencia (Spain), where we have our farm and we breed miniature donkeys and dwarf goats while they live in a peaceful natural environment.



How they are raised

For the domestication and dressage of the miniature donkey, dedication and perseverance are needed as the basis for training and discipline. They can become trained to our liking; just like a horse can reach high school dressage, donkeys are very intelligent animals. It is said that, just by passing through a path once, they will remember it throughout their lives.

Miniature donkey care

The miniature donkey, like their congeners and other pets, needs a specific care: food, shearing, hooves cleaning, vaccines, deworming, etc.

Miniature donkey food

Donkeys are native to the desert regions of the world; this makes their digestive system very rustic. Therefore, nutritional needs are much lower than those of a horse or a pony.
