About Sicilian Grey DonkeysAbout Sicilian Grey Donkeys



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

rnrnThey are a veryrnancient breed. We have some news in Chicoli (1870) about two donkey breeds inrnSicily: an ordinary working breed (Sicilian) of small size with an uneven coatrnand the lower parts of the body constantly white and the breed of Pantelleria,rna saddle breed from upper-class stables. Later about the Sicilian donkeyrnMascheroni (1927) considers two subbreeds, the one from the eastern provincesrn(similar to the Apulian donkey – Martina Franca) and the other from the westernrnprovinces (similar to the Pantesco donkey), which is described with a totallyrngrey coat, of small size, with proportions that are not as elegant or perfectrnas those of the Pantelleria donkey.

rnrnToday there arernabout a hundred examples between 4 months and 14 years of age, very rustic andrnfrugal, accustomed to live in the wild, sharing the grazing land with otherrnautochthonous animals.

rnrnThey are 120-128rncm high at the withers. They are naturally gifted for work and endurance, thisrnspecial feature has been ratified by biometric indexes which show therndifference with the most common Ragusa breed.
