Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BURRO, DONKEY, AND MULE?
A burro is the Spanish word for donkey and mule is the cross between a donkey and horse. Our little burros are miniature donkeys that are between 26 - 34" in height.
WHAT IS THE PERSONALITY OF A DONKEY?
They are incredibly docile and loving animals that enjoy attention and will sit in your lap if you let them.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I HIRE THE LITTLE BURROS FOR AN EVENT?
You can be assured that the donkeys will arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the event and they will be clean, accessorized, and ready to work. There will be 1-2 handlers per donkey to assist the event beverage servers, with photos, and to answer any questions about our beloved little burros.
WHAT CAN THE DONKEYS CARRY?
The little burros can typically carry half of their weight but we limit the load to 45 pounds to be safe. They have carried everything from water bottles, beer, wine barrels, champagne, tequila and marketing materials. If it's not too heavy, we can get as creative as you would like.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, we are insured with a commercial liability policy.
DO THE DONKEYS MAKE A "MESS?"
Rest assured, if the donkey needs to do their "business" they are outfitted with a specific bag that catches and contains the mess.
CAN WE USE FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY AROUND THE DONKEYS?
No! These animals are very sensitive to flash photography, however, they are very patient and adorable selfie stations!
Whitney & Cyndi became fast friends years ago when they realized they were aligned in many ways as entrepreneurs, philanthropists, animal lovers, and dedicated mothers.
With their combined enthusiasm, work ethic, and vision, Little Burro Events LLC was created as a 'feel-good' business with their sons, Tanner (Whitney) & Jacob (Cyndi.)
Little Burro Event's mission is to spread joy, serve the community, and help rescue beloved donkeys.
