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

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.

    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.”
