The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years. They also make great protectors. I got the inspiration for this donkey while visiting the farm at the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. The donkeys are used to protect the chickens. Frame is not inclued. The frame is added for reference only. Printed art will not show a watermark. Shipped in a sleeve with sturdy backing to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition. Shipped through USPS first class mail with tracking and delivery confirmation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions--I will be more than happy to help!
