Rocky and Daisy are booking for the 2021/22 Season!
Can guests take a photo with them and pet them? Yes! Rocky and Daisy like being petted on their necks and around their ears. Each guest can get photos with them.
Do you only do weddings? No, Rocky and Daisy can attend any event where you wish to have a photo opportunity or would like goods distributed to guest, as long as they fit in the panniers and do not exceed 25lbs per pannier.
Do you give rides? No, I am sorry, Rocky and Daisy are not available for rides, for children or adults.
How much can they carry? Rocky and Daisy are limited to 80lbs total for deadweight (dead weight is weight that doesn't move, they can haul more if it's live weight), their size and strength make them excellent beer burros, smaller donkeys cannot carry as much.
Do you shave/clip them? No, due to being located in Montana, we let them have the variations of their natural coat for protection, in spring and fall they will be fuzzy, mid summer they will be slick and shiny.
Do you bathe them? Yes, both donkeys are bathed (weather dependent) and groomed before each event, often starting days prior. During shedding season, please expect to get a little bit of hair on you, but don't worry, we have lint rollers to round up those stray hairs.
How long have you had them? I've owned Daisy for eleven years and Rocky for eight.
Their ears are back! Are they mad? No, they're listening to what is behind them. If they're mad, their ears will be flat against their neck.
Are you insured? YES! We carry commercial liability insurance. We also are fully vaccinated and carry current Coggins to show that they do not carry any transmissible diseases.
Do they spook easily? Not usually, but they are animals, we can never predict what might scare them, but Rocky and Daisy are used to lots of people, loud music, traffic, bicycles, runners/hikers. In general, compared to a horse, donkeys prefer to assess a situation rather than run from it.
