Animal experience hosted by Deborah

90 mins
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Guests will learn the history of the American Mammoth Jackstock and their connection with Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. They will learn about the history of the American mule (and what a mule is!) and his role in the building of America. They will learn why these animal's numbers are now listed as "critical" with only about 3,500 left in the world.

Guests will then have the opportunity to visit the AMJ donkey herd for petting, grooming (if desired), and lots of donkey love. Guests, depending upon time of booking, may even have the opportunity to witness a donkey giving birth at our maternity ward, which is located near the cabin.

Our donkeys are used for therapy for mentally challenged adults and the elderly, so they are very used to humans of all ages.

Of course visits are in a paddock, or pasture, so bring your wellies in case it has rained! Bring appropriate clothes/footwear for being in an agricultural setting, but most importantly, bring love and interest, because the donkeys will bring theirs!

Meet your host, Deborah

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
I am the founder/owner of Lake Nowhere Mule and Donkey Farm - a farm dedicated to the preservation of the now rare, American heritage breed of donkey - the American Mammoth Jackstock. My articles pertaining to donkeys (and mules) have been published internationally, and I have been called upon to consult with historical sites such as Mount Vernon and Monticello regarding their history regarding these animals. I teach labs, here on the farm, for veterinary/animal science students from the University of TN @ Martin in basic animal science, equine reproduction and stable management.
