Clovelly Donkeys Timetable


In summer the donkeys go out in the fields by night and come in to work by day.

However this plan doesn't always work as donkeys are dry-climate animals and hate the rain so we have to bring them into the stables if the weather is bad. The donkeys work from the stable if it is raining because it is the only shelter we have.
