TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

NAME: THE BALEARIC ASS

The Balearic ass is a hardy animal, noble, and with nervous temperament and great strength. In ancient times it was a faithful companion and very useful for farmers in Majorca. Its strength was used for all types of work in the farms. The farmers used to cross asses with horses to get mules, animals of more size and power. The fate of the donkey changed with the advent of industrial development and machinery and was about to disappear. The collaboration between groups of farmers and public administration, led, in 1990, the creation of a Register of Select Livestock related to the autochthonous Majorcan ass, with a core foundation of fifty animals. On February 7th,2002, it was established the Stud Book Majorcan donkey race, a very positive step for the consolidation of the pure breeding of these animals. Currently these animals are used on many farms for cleaning of forests.
