5 Living Outlanders

Living Outlanders

Posted on June 16, 2011 by team


Inhabitants of mountain regions have always kept donkeys and appreciated them for their endurance and diligence.

Eight years ago, brothers Nicholay and Ivan Pomogalov founded a donkey farm for tourists riding along mountain paths.

But their business was started by an accident. They bought just one donkey, and only then decided to organise the whole farm and purchased about 20 donkeys from Gagauz in Moldova.

Now their farm is plenty of not only donkeys…

but also of hens…

oxen…

and pigs.

Today the farm has about 40 donkeys of different age. Most of them are used for tourists’ transportation : in summer the demand is high. The farm sells some animals, but some of them are kept only for procreation.

Riding a donkey is easier and not so terrible as on horse. Harnesses and saddles are practically the same.

    I always wanted a donkey and a little cart since I was a young girl. Maybe I get them when I’m an old lady for me and the cats to ride around my dacha and garden and wave to all my friends and neighbors.

    A friend of mine sent me photographs of a donkey killing a mountain lion that tried to attack it’s owners in the mountains out in Colorado. It was incredible. The mountain lion was big but I’ve seen bigger mountain lions so maybe it wasn’t fully matured yet.
