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.

Hired Real Donkeys for our special 25th anniversary summer funday last Sunday.
The donkeys and their handler worked tirelessly for 3 hours and were loved by all the kids, not to mention the adults!
Organising the visit was really easy and went like clockwork from start to finish. They even brought the sunshine!
Thank you Real Donkeys. X

Real Donkeys were the star of the show at our school's annual Summer Fayre this year. Held on Wednesday 22nd June 2016, Walter, Tommy, Carl and Trooper won the hearts of our children, their families and our local community. We hope they become a permanent fixture going forward.

Hired Real Donkeys for our school summer fair last weekend. They were brilliant!
Booking was easy and all paperwork was sent through prior to the fair as promised.
The donkeys were beautiful, very well cared for.
Would definitely recommend.
Thank you Real Donkeys, the children really enjoyed your visit.

I hired donkeys to come to our annual Notton Gala on 12 June 2016. Mike's employee Walter arrived on time with 2 beautiful donkeys that were clearly well cared for. Walter was lovely with all the children and clearly loved the donkeys and was very caring. The weather was terrible and unfortunately the Gala was cut short. I have already booked them for next year and would recommend them without hesitation.

We hired 2 donkeys for my daughter's 6th birthday party on Saturday 26th March 2016.
Tommy came with trooper and Danny 2 lovely pleasant donkeys and they stayed for 2 hours and came on time. My daughter and her friends all had many rides and got to feed and pet and fuss the donkeys which they loved ( so did the donkeys). Tommy was a lovely man who was available to answer any questions and couldn't do enough to help and please the children. The price was very fair and I would definitely recommend and hire the donkeys again for a party. My daughter and her friends had a great time and so did I, thank you for this unique experience.

Brilliant morning with Trooper and Danny (and, of course, Walter) at Saltaire United Reformed Church for Palm Sunday today. The donkeys were fantastic and we had lots of children in who were passing by as well as our own church family. The donkeys behaved brilliantly, not even put off by all the waving of palm branches. Many thanks to you all.
