Walk a sheep, walk a donkey...walk a Pig....a PIG!!! So the choice was obvious because, who walks a Pig! Apparently quite a few famous folks have done so and you can see why as soon as you meet the pigs! They are cheeky , full of character and often acted more like our dogs than you'd expect from a pig. A lovely experience topped off by some cake and tea afterwards. Helena was an excellent host.

I love donkeys and was excited to do the Dinkie Donkey walk with Maverick & Goose. It didnt disappoint. Started off with brushing them, which i loved. Julia was just amazing, you could see the love for her animals oozing out of her. Great walk with the donkey's, and lovely picnic, great views and lots of pics taken and sent to us by Julia. Also loved the knowledge of edible plants on our walk and of the area. All added up to a fantastic hands on experience. I got a cuddle off Goose at the end, made my day! Also must mention Julia also found doggy day care for my dog, as struggled to find anywhere myself. So a massive thank you as it meant my partner could also join in.

Loved the Dinkie Donkey experience with Julia the owner of Maverick and Goose! Weather was dry for our picnic, glorious views over the fantastic Brecon countryside Enjoyed grooming Goose before setting off Great present from my 3 adult children, good memories with lots of pictures. If I had enough land donkeys would be my first purchase! Julia was great and provided a lot of valuable information from start to finish

What an amazing walk with two beautiful dinky donkeys, Maverick and Goose. We groomed and got to know them before getting them ready to carry our blankets for our picnic arranged by our host, Julia. Julia was fantastic, so welcoming and accommodating! As my partner and I booked last minute, I wasn’t very well equipped but Julia went above and beyond to make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend this activity for anyone thinking about it!

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours! We visited and walked the miniature donkeys and despite getting lost and being late, Julia was wonderfully welcoming when we arrived. The donkeys were an absolute delight and very friendly and after learning about them and getting to give them a good brush, Goose and Maverick were kitted up with our lunches and off we went. We walked for maybe 30 minutes and then sat on a blanket and ate our snacks whilst looking out at the beautiful views before heading back. Julia did a great job at taking lots of photographs of us and sending them on the next day and we really had a wonderful day. We left feeling so happy and would recommend this to anyone who has a love of animals! A truly unique and magical experience!
