Got an itch to scratch?

Did you know that donkeys prefer to be scratched rather than patted?

Patting is not part of donkey behaviour so it’s not something they really understand. Scratching, on the other hand, is similar to mutual grooming, something they enjoy and find very relaxing. So next time you meet a donkey, why not try giving them a good scratch instead of a pat? I guarantee, you’ll have a new best friend.
