And it left for the 3rd partner wildlife park of the Tourist office which we present to you this month in the blog! Today, I am going to make you discover the structure "Of the Cock to the Donkey" of Christelle and Olivier, as well as their two children Quentin and Eliot and two other accomplices were named Maguy and Virginia. "Of the Cock in the Donkey", it is at the same time an asinerie, a soap factory, but also a possibility to make hike donkeys of 4, 6 or 8 km (of 1 hour at 2 am) and baptisms for hogback of 15 mn (with diploma and reward at the end). And it is not finished! You will find also guest houses among four, yurt and unusual accommodation there (looking like a small hut), as well as three locations for campers. All this a structure, it is brilliant not?

Small presentation

There is also a mini-farm where you will find numerous races of hens (as the hens of Marans); goats; sheeps and a pig mangalitza, close to the family of the wild boars, named Rillette (too funny!). Only, in family either between friends, come to roam in the park to know everything on donkeys. Especially as " Of the cock in the Donkey " possess six of seven existing races of donkeys.
Except the wildlife park, this establishment is also known for her soap factory created with fresh milk of ass and colouring agents and perfumes of synthesis of French origin. It only produce soap in the fresh milk of ass resulting from their breeding, situated in the Swamp from Poitou. Do not especially miss, every afternoon, the draft of asses at 2 pm and the manufacturing of soap in the laboratory from 2 pm till 6 pm. You can then have there from A to Z the production of a soap with fresh milk of ass, just collected.

The novelties 2016
Of the " Cock in the Donkey " decided this year to refresh its establishment, but attention not no matter how: in western. Sheriff, cowboy, hut style mini-ranch will be part of the furniture from now on. Especially as this year, a new donkey arrived and guess his name? Cactus! In accordance with the theme. Always in the novelties, tables of picnic were installed to be able to eat beside donkeys and other races of donkeys of the park (with Rillette also, naturally!). Small and big, you will find huge games wooden with the famous throw of horseshoe, the jonchet (Jackstraws), the archery ... Concerning the route in the wildlife park, you can this year, by means of educational panels, discover the park with playful explanations on the themes of the food, the reproduction, the gestation, the lactation … Of what to be unbeatable on donkeys!

Eliot's donkey-cdotes
Did you know that an ass produces seven liters of milk a day, but that it is possible generally to collect it that one liter or two? Furthermore, the ass is not as the cow, that is it does not produce any milk permanently. She is going to produce it during the first year when she will have had her ass's foal, but when she will be separated from him, she will not produce it anymore. On the other hand, an ass can milk whenever. She really has not of hours fixed and sometimes it is even possible not to milk her. During my visit, Eliot explained to me that the ass's milk is excellent for the skin and that it is also possible to drink him. This milk is provided with surprising virtues for the digestion, bring numerous vitamins and minerals, but is also perfect for the complexion (where from Cléopâtre and her baths of ass's milk).

My crush
If you have a chance to visit this park, do not especially leave empty-handed! Direction the shop where numerous knowledges wait only to rub you the back! Moreover, I was unable to resist a biological soap in the fresh milk of ass and argan oil. But the best, it is that in the back of the packaging, you know from which ass results the milk of your soap! Then, thanks to the ass "Girl" to return my pleasant shower every morning!
