Provence donkeys, also known as the ânes de Provence or Provençal donkey, are a breed of domestic donkey that is native to the Provence region of southeastern France. They are medium-sized, typically standing between 12-14 hands at the shoulder, and are known for their distinctive appearance, with a greyish-brown coat, white underbelly, and black mane and tail.

In recent years, the population of Provence donkeys has declined, as they have been replaced by more modern means of transportation and are no longer needed for work on the farm. However, there have been efforts to preserve the breed and to promote its use as a companion animal.
