Book Description

15 Oct 1992
A celebration of the donkey - its habits, its physical well-being, even its breeding, this book brings together the author's own work on donkeys and the contributions of other experts. There is information on owning, caring for, training and, above all, loving these gentle animals. The author, who runs a donkey sanctuary in Devon, tells of the 4,000 donkeys that have enjoyed the peace of the sanctuary and of her worldwide travels on behalf of the donkey, and in particular her efforts to better the animal's lot in the Third World.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not alone. 24 Feb 2014
By Ryan H - Published on
Having a passion for donkeys left me feeling isolated. Not many people understood my donkey passion, and it's actually persecuted to the point of being illegal in 47 states. Then along came Elisabeth D. Svendsen. Like a single candle holding a lonely vigil in the darkness, Ms. Svendsen's book called to me. I brought my burning flame of donkey passion to join her vigil. Others are beginning to follow. We may still be a small and secretive movement now, but one day, we will rise up and shake off the chains that bind us. We will tell the world we are not ashamed of our donkey love!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed Book 2 April 2014
By The Fed - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this a gift for someone who raises donkeys for cattle protection. Very detailed book that I'm sure she will enjoy. The donkey is very misunderstood. Females are usually very gentle unless you're a canine. Donkeys will instinctively run off canines, and will stomp them if they catch up to one. Donkeys are used to protect all kinds of cattle sheep, etc., which is why you usually see a few living with them. This book is a gem. If you like or own donkeys this is the book for you.
