Our Donkey Team
He is a calm and sweet natured donkey who has recently been diagnosed with pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction and is now thriving on daily medication.
Blackberry Donkeys currently have six licenced standard ridden donkeys and one licenced Miniature Mediterranean Donkey, all with their own unique personalities.
Sox is our tallest donkey. He is also our lead donkey and is bursting with confidence. He enjoys meeting new people, visiting new places and eating ginger snaps as a special treat. He is definitely our nosiest donkey.
Bandit is an easy going, lovable donkey who is happy to plod around with his friends any time any where, as long as he's getting lots of cuddles and attention.
Harbury Superted, (or 'Teddy' as he's known to his friends), is the smallest, member of our team. At 32inches high, Teddy is a miniature Mediterranean donkey and has a special licence of his own, which means that he can visit care homes, dementia centres, schools and community groups, as well as attending special events . She enjoys having his chin and tummy tickled, as well as having a ginger biscuit as a treat. His best friends are Joseph and Bandit.
Joseph is a super friendly boy, who is now an experienced part of the team. He loves being the centre of attention and having lots of hugs. He is good friends with Teddy and enjoys attending educational talks at schools with him around the north east.
Maurice is an experienced donkey who came to live with the rest of the Blackberry Donkeys team during the covid-19. He is absolutely wonderful and really enjoys visiting care homes and having his ears itched!
Tom is a rescue donkey who didn't have a great start in life. He came to live with us in May 2023 and has settled in really well. He has a cheeky outgoing personality and a very woolly coat.
