Poitou Donkeys

Poitou ( pronounced pwa-too ) donkeys were near extinction in the mid 70's , but efforts were made to save the breed. I couldn't find the photos that I have of the donkey from here in town. I took my camera with me when I went out the past few days and of course, none of them were out where I could see them. So I went to the trusty internet to find a few photos.

I know you can't really tell in these photos, but they have big beautiful doe eyes--very expressive! I guess one reason I like them is that they are different.

Wow...they're shaggy things, aren't they? I like the little guy in the first photo...looks like they're really cute when they're babies. Thanks...I learned something new today!

I've never heard of them either. They're cute! Thanks, Ann.
