SANTA'S PARADE, AYLESBURY


Thank you so much for coming to the parade on Sunday - the donkeys have been a real talking point, they have a lot of fans in town!

One little boy was particularly delighted as the donkeys passed - he pointed at them with an amazed expression on his face and said "REINDEER!"

I look forward to seeing you again in the new year - I will be in touch to make some bookings once our budget has been confirmed.

Wishing Kelly24, Mike and the boys a very merry Christmas and a very happy 2015.

BISHOPS HULL PRIMARY SCHOOL, TAUNTON


Mike has been at our Primary School May Fayre for 2013 and 2014 and we will definitely ask for them to attend again in 2015!

The donkeys are a great attraction and the children love meeting and riding the donkeys.

Mike is knowledgeable, making sure he is set up in the right place to ensure he gives the best experience to the children. We would strongly recommend him.

AYLESBURY SEASIDE EVENT

When we bring the seaside to Aylesbury we always have plenty of sand, buckets, spades and entertainers but no seaside event would be complete without traditional Donkey Rides.
We were thrilled with the service provided by Mike's Donkeys, bringing beautiful donkeys who were obviously very well cared for, both at the event and in their home environment.
Thank you for helping to make Aylesbury on Sea 2014 a huge success and look forward to seeing you again another year.

DONKEY SALE - DELIA AND EDITH

Edith and Delia are doing well. Delia is really affectionate, probably because of the carrots which she seems to really like.
We are thrilled with them.

The donkeys were a huge success and Rob a professional joy to work with.

WOOTTON LOWER SCHOOL CHRISTMAS FETE

I just wanted to say a very big thank you to the donkeys and Rob who came today. The children had a wonderful time and Rob made sure it all ran smoothly.

Many Thanks once again

NAVY FAMILY FUN DAY, PORTSMOUTH

I would like to thank you and the donkeys for being the stars of our summer fete.
Everyone was excited at the thought of meeting the donkeys, and the children of armed forces that attended were smitten.
The feedback we have had is that the donkeys need to return again next year. Kelly did an outstanding job walking up and down for hours with the donkeys.
Michelle Curtis

ABERMILL CARE HOME, ABERTRIDWR


The donkey visit was a great success and everyone had such a good time.
We were also really pleased that local children could join us for the visit.
On behalf of all of us at Abermill, I would like to say a huge thank you to Mike’s Donkeys for travelling in such bad weather to give Residents and the children a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

EVENT TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CANCER CHARITY RIDE, CHELTENHAM


Thanks so much for organising Rob to come over for Sunday. We had a fabulous afternoon ... and the weather held :)
Rob was great on the day, and the donkeys went down a storm. We took £800 for charity on the day, so it was a great success all round.

1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY, LEIGH COURT, BRISTOL


My husband and I just wanted to say a big thank you to Kelly, Dermot and Charlie for coming to our daughter Anya's 1st birthday party at Leigh Court last Sunday.
The children absolutely loved the donkeys and everyone enjoyed their ride on them.
It definitely made the party very memorable.

JACOB & HENDRYD


Many thanks to Mike for quickly finding me a pair of calm donkey geldings to be companions to my horses after the sudden loss of our much loved companion pony.
Mike's clear love for his donkeys and his confident guidance gave me a good start as a new donkey owner.
Jacob and Hendryd are great, very playful, we all love them!
Karen Silcock

LENNY & TINY


I very pleased with my two new retired beach donkeys Lenny and Tiny. They are so easy to handle and are very well behaved.
Everyone in our village loves to see them when we walk them out and they will be making an appearance at various village events this spring and summer.
Thank you to Mike for delivering them all the way from West Wales to East Sussex.

WEST HILL DONKEYS (Weymouth's Award Winning Beach Donkeys)


In 2011 I took over the beach donkeys in Weymouth. Maggie, my predecessor, had bought Dainty from Mike - she is a brilliant donkey.

When I needed more donkeys I contacted Mike and over the past year and a half I have bought seven donkeys to work on the beach - Jenny, Blacky (now Dolly), Maggie, Gracy, Hilda, Myra and Debbie.

The girls are all such lovely donkeys with kind natures. If I need any more donkeys in the future I definitely will be contacting Mike again.

You are very welcome to contact me or come and visit the girls on the beach.
