About Pantelleria DonkeysAbout Pantelleria Donkeys



Pantelleria Donkeys are an ancient breed from Pantelleria Island,rnItaly, where they were common until a few decades ago.

rnrnPantelleria Donkeys are very strong, in the past they werernused to carry extremely heavy loads around the paths of the island. Theyrnrepresented an important resource for the island and Trapani province. Thernhybrids (mules) were highly appreciated abroad, as well. Also at some time inrnthe past speed races were organized on track and Pantelleria Donkeys wasrnpreferred to horses, as they were more suitable to be ridden on any kind ofrnground. Unfortunately they are now almost totally extinct.

rnrnThey are very robust animals, with a fast and sure walk whenrndescending rocky paths mainly, thanks to the natural amble walk (they movernforwards the limbs of the same side), their comfortable mount and a precociousrngrowth, together with a great physical stamina and toughness to hardships likernthe lack of drinking water; not least their intelligence. These are the mainrnfeatures of this animal that for a lot of time accompanied the life and the laborrnof people in Pantelleria.
