The donkey is a domesticated descendent of the wild ass and has been used as a work animal for many years. They are a long lived animal and can live up to 30-50 years.
A male is called a ‘Jack’ and the female is called a ‘Jenny’ (or ‘Jennet’).
Arlo is brown all over and Beech has a white tummy - can you tell them apart?
