Donkey Breeds

Donkeys were first domesticated around 5,000 years ago as beasts of burden and companions, most likely in Egypt or Mesopotamia. There are about 41 million donkeys in the world today; China has the most with 11 million, followed by Pakistan, Ethiopia, and Mexico.

Donkeys vary considerably in size, depending on breed and management. The height at the withers ranges from 7.3 hands (31 inches or 79 cm) to 15.3 hands (63 inches or 160 cm), and they weigh from 80 to 480 kg (180 to 1,060 lb.). Working donkeys in the poorest countries have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years; and in more prosperous countries, they may have a lifespan of 30 to 50 years.

At the end of ‘800 this donkey was well spotted in the area of Amiata mountains in Tuscany, a uniform population of grey coated donkeys with special black and white stripes in the limbs and a scapular cross Thanks to their slender and nimble shape, they could go up to steep and rough mountains. Neurotic and good-natured as well, these donkeys had a large diffusion mainly as recurrent winners in the traditional ‘palio’. Thanks to the Horse Increase Institute at Pisa a group of these donkeys have been preserved with known ascendants an ...

Anatolia Donkeys are also known as Brown Donkeys and are mainly found throughout Turkey. They are usually black and gray. 

Anatolia Donkeys date back beyond the Ottoman Empire; they were used alongside mules and horses to transport goods along rivers, steep slopes, and rocky terrain. Most often they were used by peasants to transport goods before the roads and bridges were built. Today they are still extensively used in the East Anatolia Region and Northeastern part of Black Sea Coast in the more mountainous areas ...

Asinara Donkeys are from the isle of Asinara, Italy, where a colony of around a hundred still live in the wild. They are small donkeys with a white coat, probably because of an incomplete albinism.

The Asinara donkey’s ancestors may have been imported originally from Egypt by the Duke of Asinara in 1800. Evidently by the end of the 19th century some white-coated donkeys lived on the island, probably they were abandoned by the inhabitants that had moved in 1885 when the island had become State Property.

Australian Teamster - Breeds of DonkeyAustralian Teamster

Photo by Pat Emmett
Australian ‘Teamster’ Donkeys evolved from Donkeys were mainly introduced into Australia in the nineteenth century, especially for use in the hot, dry, harsh interior of the continent. Donkeys in Australia had a mixture of blood from British as well as Nubian and Arabian strains, all of which were imported into the country in the early period of European settlement.

With the increasing use of mechanized transport, donkeys largely outlived their usefulness, and many were released, forming feral herds in outback areas.

Historically, the donkey was never used extensively in Britain – except in Ireland, where it became the principal draught animal for cottagers and smallholders throughout the country.
Eggs and butter, which were the chief produce of the widespread small farms, were brought to market weekly by a patient donkey harnessed to a small cart, usually driven by the farmer's wife.

While some breeders refer to their donkeys as “Irish” and others as “English”, they are essentially the same breed and are grouped as English/Irish b ...

Sicilian gey Donkeys, or the ‘Grey from Sicily’ are also commonly known as ‘Ferrante’.

They are a very ancient breed. We have some news in Chicoli (1870) about two donkey breeds in Sicily: an ordinary working breed (Sicilian) of small size with an uneven coat and the lower parts of the body constantly white and the breed of Pantelleria, a saddle breed from upper-class stables. Later about the Sicilian donkey Mascheroni (1927) considers two subbreeds, the one from the eastern provinces (similar to the Apulian donkey ...
