Summer Shade Farm is located 35 miles east of Cincinnati, Ohio. We have been in the donkey business for over 30 years. We have had all sizes over the years, but for the past 15 years we have concentrated on miniature and standard donkeys and a few miniature mules.
Donkeys make wonderful friends and pets for both young and old alike. With their less intimidating size and loving personalities, they are perfect pets and companions for anyone. Donkeys can be ridden, driven, packed and enjoyed in a thousand other ways. They can be companions for other animals and people. They are endearing, loving creatures who we liken to big dogs. They know their names, come when you call them and love to play with toys. They are just fun to be around!
We are active members of the Midstates Mule and Donkey Show Society, Inc. and attend many of their summer shows. We are also long time members of the American Donkey and Mule Society (ADMS). All of our donkeys have up to date immunizations, worming and hoof trimming. All of our donkeys and mules are registered with the ADMS or AMMS (American Miniature Mule Society). They are all friendly and socialized since birth.
