"Dakota" is an adorable, spunky donkey foal for sale. She would make a great companion or guard donkey. Currently being raised around chickens, ducks, goats, and dogs. She is very smart and beautiful to look at with great stripes on her legs. Her mother stands about 11.2hhs so Dakota will mature about that or just a little taller. Dakota is haltered and has had some basic leading/handling but needs to go to a home experienced with donkeys and/or horses. She was born July 10 and will be ready to go to her new home the first week of October. Shipping is available within 100 miles.

Thanks! I don't know if I could upload a video onto here, she is a riot running around. Plays with the water tub brush(never know where I'll find it), knocks over lawn chairs, tries to play with my dog, opens and closes goat house door. This is my first time owning donkeys and I am amazed how intelligent they are! And easy to keep!

What's needed to house, feed and take care of one?


Is it true that they are protectors of the other livestock?

Would it be considered a 'horse' because according to the township ordinance, I don't have enough property for horses.

I. On 2 acres also in Hunterdon County

Donkeys require simple shelter - mine share with my goats, a 5 or 6 ft tall shed is ample. They eat grass and hay and a teensy bit of grain if need be. They need equine vaccines once a year and their feet done a few times a year. They need to be dewormed routinely also. i have no idea on zoning requirements, you would have to check with your township they are not horses but your township may have similar requirements.

And yes they are good protectors of other livestock. I have mine in with chickens and goats and ducks, other people use them to protect sheep also.
