Meet Jimmy James

Jimmy the miniature Donkey at Our Backyard is extremely cute and loves a good scratch!


Jimmy’s soft fur makes for pleasant belly rubs, and his curious ears will stand up straight when he meets someone new.

Donkeys are great therapy animals as they are clever, patient, shy and strong-willed so if you want them to co-operate, you need to observe and understand what they are telling you with their body language.

Donkeys respond best if you are calm and gentle too, so remember this when you approach Jimmy.

Jimmy is a wonderful addition to ‘Our Backyard’ as he is a cheeky lad who loves a good play with his horse friends and is a great companion to our farm activities.

Sponsor Jimmy to help us provide the best care and home for our cheeky friend.
