We have two new residents on Brambleberry Farms! Welcome Henrietta and Jennifer, two Minature Mediterranean Donkeys. The jennets (or jennies, both refer to female donkeys) were acquired from our local veterinarians and farmers Carlos Gonzalez and Jill Kramer. We traded three Scottish Blackface sheep for the girls.
Mini donkeys are native to the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Jennifer and Henrietta are about 2 years old, which is very young for donkeys. They can live up to 30 years and are known for being very friendly and affectionate. The girls were a little upset about their new digs for the first few days but have started getting used to us and their Scottish Blackface sheep roommates. They are very affectionate and will likely greet you at the fence begging for some pets when you come to visit.
