Donkey social behaviour

The following video shows Matilde, Rubí, Morris and Aitana, just messing about in the field on Sunday evening. If you watch this sequence right through, just note how much time the donkeys spend on social interaction. There is hardly a moment when they are not communicating with each other. They are constantly seeking to gain each other’s attention.


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.

    Scots College Rome has donkeys? In the Beda they only have terrapins. Now don’t go dressing up as Zorro and try to blag your way into conclave tomorrow, no matter how many pints they promise you in the seminary bar! 🙂

  4. We is coming up to Palm Sunday when Jesus rode on a donkey – probably de origin of de expression “Holy Moke.”
