Shropshire Council

Working with donkeys

Event details

  • Price: £60
  • Topics: Heavy horses

Dusty, a rescued seaside donkey, joined the farm in 2002.  He is a very useful working animal around the farm, pulling the cart and a range of light machinery for ground work – his small hooves can be a real advantage!

During this half-day course with resident waggoner, Simon, you will learn how to care for a donkey and how to harness up and prepare Dusty for driving the cart and working in the field.  You will then lead Dusty into the fields to drive and work him yourself.  This course is suitable for beginners.

You will need to dress for the weather as this course takes place outside and wear safety/sturdy boots.

Tutor: Simon Trueman

Simon is available to run donkey days on alternative dates to groups of four people.  If you have a group and would like Simon to run a course especially for you, then please contact us for further details.
