WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH DONKEYS? ARE THEY REALLY THAT AWESOME?
Yes, they are.
WHY DO THEY NEED THEIR OWN GEAR- DOESN'T PONY GEAR COME IN THOSE SIZES?
Ponies can be roughly the same sizes as donkeys, but they're a very different shape. Think about wearing straight-cut jeans if you're curvy, or curvy-cut jeans if you're linear. Fit matters because it effects comfort, safety and durability- plus, nobody wants to look like a sack of potatoes. So yes, Virginia, donkeys REALLY DO NEED their own couture.
AREN'T THEY LIKE A PONY, BUT WITH LONG EARS?
No. A thousand times no.
SO YOU DON'T LIKE PONIES?
I love ponies. I can love ponies AND donkeys at the same time even though they are not the same thing.
BUT A DONKEY AND A MULE ARE THE SAME THING, RIGHT? OR IS THAT AN ASS? AND WHAT'S A BURRO?
A burro is a donkey. An ass is a donkey. A mule is a hybrid who has a mare for a mother and a jack donkey for a father. There are also zeedonk hybrids, sometimes called zonkeys, created by breeding with zebras.
WILL YOUR DONKEY TURNOUT BLANKET FIT A ZEEDONK?
Yes, almost certainly.
DO I REALLY NEED TO KEEP A DONKEY WITH ANOTHER DONKEY? CAN'T I KEEP THEM WITH A GOAT OR PONY FOR A FRIEND?
Donkeys need at least one other donkey companion; this is what they almost invariably choose when they have a choice. Keep your donkeys in pairs or more; then you can add other equine friends if that works for your farm.
DO YOU SELL OR BREED DONKEYS?
Nope! If you're looking to add donkeys to your life contact a reputable donkey, equine or large animal rescue in your neck of the woods.
DO YOU ALSO SELL HORSE BLANKETS?
Yes, varied blanket styles and sizes are here in the shop. New and used both available and the stock is always changing so if you see something you like, don't wait to claim it.
DO I NEED TO MEASURE MY DONKEY FOR A BLANKET OR CAN YOU JUST GUESS WHAT SIZE WILL FIT BASED ON MY VAGUE DESCRIPTIONS LIKE "NOT THAT BIG" AND "AVERAGE SIZE?"
You really should measure- it only takes a few minutes. Our blankets have super-adjustable fronts and an oversized tail flap to make the perfect fit easy within each size. We make blankets and sheets in sizes 45-72.
WHY DO DONKEYS NEED A BLANKET (THAT'S A RUG TO YOU BRITS!) IN CRAPPY WEATHER?
Not all donkeys do, a lot depends on what your climate is. No matter how fuzzy a donkey gets, their coat is not waterproof and cannot shed rain and wet precipitation like a horse's winter coat. They evolved in deserts and arid climates, and generally despise cold wet weather.
