One of the seven French donkey breeds
The Norman donkey is one of the seven French donkey breeds. Derived from wild donkeys from Africa domesticated and imported into Europe, it draws its origins from the Normandy bocage and its market gardening lands. These donkeys were used in the 19th century on farms to transport the Norman cows' milk directly to the villages or the butter and cheese production workshops as well as for market gardening work (transport of fodder, carrots, leeks, turnips). Replaced by agricultural machinery, they are now reviving Norman traditions in competitions, village festivals, and performances and are more widely appreciated in the field of tourism and for pack donkey treks.
