About Martina Franca Donkeys
Donkeys are large size donkeys (135-160cm high at the withers) are from Apulia,
Italy. Most likely they were developed by crossbreeding local dark-coated
donkeys with donkeys from Catalogna imported into the area at the beginning of
the 16 century.
They have a quite
lively temperament. They are well-adapted to difficult and rocky ground and are
used as beasts of burden.
