thank you do much for sending us Tommy and Trooper for our Christmas Eve Festival, they were brilliant, So beautifully presented. They were stars of the nativity taking Mary and Joseph to the stable, despite the remnants of Storm Barbara. Made 2 pages in the local paper"" Thank you Walter being part of the nativity and being so good with the children and the situation. We will definitely be having you all over again.

A fantastic opportunity for your children to enjoy a spectacular day with their friends and learn about donkeys, what they like and what they don't like. Mark and his team are amazing and the way they take the children through a magical journey with each of the donkeys is outstanding. Well done guys. Your enthusiasm is wonderful.

If you're considering hiring donkeys for a birthday party I'd definitely recommend Real Donkeys. Mark was a pleasure to deal with. Walt the handler knew his stuff and talked the children through everything. They loved the donkey rides but also feeding and grooming them too. Joe and Dillon (the donkeys) were immaculate, I did have reservations about hiring animals but these guys are obviously looked after very well. We held our party at a local country park and Walt even cleaned up after Joe and Dillon! Real Donkeys definitely exceeded our expectations. Our daughter is the talk of the town after her party, she had the best 3rd birthday EVER and its all down to these very special guests! Thanks again

Once again we have visited blackpool and let our 5 children have donkey rides using real donkeys. Lovely, well looked after donkeys, very friendly staff and the kids loved every minute!! Our daughter is disabled but they made sure she was safe happy and enjoyed it as much as the others did, which for me says alot about them.. Made alot of time for her so she could enjoy herself as much as every other child did. Cant thank them enough and i highly recommend!

We had a Seaside themed day for our infant children on Monday 11th July and the highlight was a visit from the donkeys in the afternoon. The donkeys and their handler were so organised that it only took 1hour 30mins for each of our 90 infant children to have a donkey ride and a chance to feed and stroke the donkeys. The infant children loved it and the junior children (and some of the staff) were quite jealous! Even the rain did not manage to spoil our fun. Thank-you very much to the team.

A huge huge thanks to Real Donkeys and especially Mark Ineson for helping us to raise money for the Donkey Sanctuary. I can't thank you enough for the amount of time, effort and not to mention money that you gave. The children loved John and the donkeys visiting and couldn't wait to feed them. Your donkeys even got into the local paper. We hope to see you next year.

I would just like to thank you for the amazing few hours my wedding guests had with your donkeys. Between the day and evening of my wedding I thought it would be a nice idea to entertain the children, I was so right, the donkeys went down a storm and they were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The donkeys looked amazing and so well cared for, they almost smiled! Thank you so much again for adding to my special day and making it perfect x ;

Cannot recommend Real Donkeys enough. 2nd annual Seaside day for Nursery end of year event and 2nd year we've had Real Donkeys over.
This year Karl brought Marley and Carl and they were all loved by all!!!
Super day enjoyed by all-the donkeys were definitely the highlight! (We only had one in tears the day after when they came to nursery and realised the donkeys hadn't stayed!! )

Plans already in action for a bigger and better event to include all of the foundation stage children next year.
