A curious and cautious animal
Perhaps influenced by the novels of the Countess of Segur, Brigitte Pieau has always had a passion for the Cotentin donkeys (Equus asinus). Since 2008, she has been breeding these animals in the Manche, first in Beauchamps, then for the last three years in Carolles, near Mont-Saint-Michel. She has been working to promote the breed, with the greatest of respect for the animal's welfare.
