Welcome to Arwen Farm!

Home of Arwenvale Registered
Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys.

Arwen Farm is nestled in a valley amongst the rolling hills of
Haliburton County (Cottage Country) and located at the north end of the beautiful town
of Minden, Ontario; a mere two and a half hours north of Toronto.

We have a small select breeding herd of miniature Mediterranean donkeys,
all chosen for their excellent conformation and wonderful endearing temperaments. 
Arwen Farms goal is to produce foals with all their parents' attributes. Our donkey breeding
stock can be traced back to the original imports from Sardinia and Sicily making them true
Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys. 
We are very proud of the stock we have, their pedigrees contain some truly wonderful donkeys.

All our donkeys are handled daily, we love spending time with them and they love human
company.  Arwen Farm foals are well socialized from birth; they know they are special
from day one!  Donkeys born at Arwen Farm carry the Arwenvale prefix and, like their parents,
are registered in both Canada and the USA.  Male foals destined to be pets will be gelded;
geldings make wonderful hormones to disrupt their demeanour!

Donkeys are herd animals and do not like to be alone.  Therefore we do not sell single
donkeys to people who do not have another equine at home and preferably another donkey,
however, we would of course, sell a pair of donkeys, if available, to keep each other company!  
Although only requiring a small acreage to be kept on, miniature donkeys do however
need a shelter from summer heat and flies, as well as wind, rain and snow. 
If winters are very cold, a fully enclosed barn is necessary as very small donkeys will
shiver when temperatures get below -16C at night.

All our donkeys are up to date with vaccinations, are regularly dewormed and have
their hooves trimmed every six to eight weeks.

Most of the things I've learned about miniature donkeys were taught to me by an ass!
Pay attention to your animals and they will teach you a lot.


G.K. Chesterton


When fishes flew and forests walked

And figs grew upon thorn,

Some moment when the moon was blood

Then surely I was born.


With monstrous head and sickening cry

And ears like errant wings,

The devil’s walking parody

On all four-footed things.


The tattered outlaw of the earth,

Of ancient crooked will;

Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,

I keep my secret still.


Fools! For I also had my hour;

One far fierce hour and sweet:

There was a shout about my ears,

And palms before my feet.



We hope you enjoy visiting our website for miniature donkeys,
and thank you for stopping by!
