We are a family run donkey business founded by Mike Thomas in 2002.
We provide donkeys for all manner of occasions, from fetes to tv work, weddings to corporate events, theatre appearances to parties. We have worked for the BBC, Amazon, ITV, Sky, Facebook, Entertainment One, Renault, Esther Rantzen and The National Trust, to name just a few.
In addition to the above, we have extensive experience providing specially-trained donkeys for care home visits, special needs schools and educational days.
Mike's Donkeys is based in Carmarthenshire, west Wales. Our donkeys travel in specially adapted boxes and trailers, in which they are free to move around, eat and drink. They are closely monitored and are very happy travellers.
The welfare of all the donkeys is of utmost importance and Mike would like to take this opportunity of thanking the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary for all the help and assistance they have given him in achieving and maintaining high standards of donkey welfare.
Donkey Sanctuary representatives inspect our donkeys on occasions throughout the year and they are regularly checked over by the vet, visited by the farrier and have check-ups with the dentist to ensure they are fit and healthy and in top condition.
For welfare reasons a donkey should not be sold before it is six months old, not be ridden until it is four years old and only children under seven stone should be permitted to ride, in keeping with Donkey Sanctuary regulations.
