Project Description

PONY & DONKEY SECTION

Enniscrone Show

ENNISCRONE & DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL & INDUSTRIAL SHOW

Pony & Donkey Section

A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size. Donkeys have an incredible memory – they can recognise areas and other donkeys they were with up to 25 years ago. Donkeys are not easily startled (unlike horses) and have a keen sense of curiosity.
