Qué harás

Visit our gorgeous four-acre donkey farm right on The Creeper Trail with stunning river views. You'll meet all eight of our donkeys (six miniatures, one standard, and one critically-endangered mammoth) and get to see their individual personalities and herd dynamics up close and personal from INSIDE THE FIELD WITH THEM. You'll learn about donkeys and donkey care, hear our herd's individual stories, and learn about donkey history and rehabilitation. Learn fun facts about how donkeys are different from horses, with ample time for a Q & A session about all things donkey and farm-life. Brush our herd and take selfies too!

I am the co-owner of Abingdon Donkey Lodge and the caretaker of our herd of eight donkeys. For my full-time job, I'm an American Literature teacher and a writer--which helps support my donkey "habit." I first became interested in donkeys when exploring animal therapy as a treatment for trauma survivors, myself included. I found donkeys to be calmer, less reactive, more inquisitive, easier to bond with, and MUCH SAFER than their horse relatives. I met my first donkey (a miniature) over six years ago, + that very day I knew these sweet, fuzzy, compassionate, comical long-eared equines would be a lifetime passion. I never dreamed I'd own a donkey sanctuary some day, but here I am! I can't wait to share our beloved herd with you!

My familyenjoyed their experience with Christal and her spunky donkeys very much. We learned a great deal about donkeys and are glad there are people like Christal in the world who give them a wonderful home and share their love of animals with others. The donkeys were so much fun to pet and groom. I highly recommend this experience for anyone who loves animals and wants to support the work of people who care for them.

Such a great, family friendly experience! The donkeys were much cuter and friendlier than expected! They are like playful puppies; so gentle and love attention! Christal was amazing and spent more time than originally planned answering our questions and talking with us about the donkeys at the lodge. She was so informative and really took the time to engage! Definitely recommend this experience to anyone in the area!

A must do when you’re in the area! Christal is very knowledgeable about donkeys and I learned a lot. Got to pet and brush the donkeys up close. Really enjoyed a unique and fun experience.

This was so much fun. I love donkeys and the backstory on the rescues was heartbreaking. Christal and Jane have created a loving retreat and a safe haven for these sweet, mischievous animals. Christal gave us so much information about donkeys...so much I didn't know. My group came away very satisfied with the morning's visit. They have a lovely airbnb, too, and we hope to return to revisit the donkey babies and Jane and Christal's lovely home.

This entire experience was amazing. You can tell that Christal (who was our guide) truly loves these animals and wants everyone to learn about them!
