The reproductive system

While donkey reproduction and castration can be approached in a similar way to horses and ponies there are important differences to note.

Sexual behaviour is often more exaggerated in the donkey and stallion like behaviour may persist in the male donkey after castration. It is recommended that all male donkeys are castrated unless they are intended for breeding, and that this is carried out between 6 and 18 months.
