The beautiful creatures were specially bred during the Baroque Era for entertaining the upper classes, hence the name. Their white skin and light yellow coat stand out from a long way off, and their light blue eyes sparkle up close.
By the way: The white donkeys are extremely sure-footed animals. However, like all donkeys, they are difficult to lead over even small watercourses – they cannot tell how deep the water is and seemingly remain “stubborn”. Little bridges were therefore built over the smallest streams during the Middle Ages, so-called “donkey bridges”.
In any case, you’ll feel the proverbial sun rise when you meet these friendly animals. Especially when a young foal joins them, immediately capturing the hearts of cyclists and hikers.
