About Asinara DonkeysAbout Asinara Donkeys



Asinara Donkeys are from the isle of Asinara, Italy, where a colony of around a hundred still live in the wild. They are small donkeys with a white coat, probably because of an incomplete albinism.

The Asinara donkey’s  ancestors may have been imported originally from Egypt by the Duke of Asinara in 1800. Evedently by the end of the 19th century some white-coated donkeys lived on the island, probably they were abandoned by the inhabitants that had moved to Stintino in 1885 when the island had become State Property.

Some other evidences refer that in more recent times there have appeared a few white coated examples. The breed is rustic and frugal.
