How much weight can a donkey carry?
Donkeys can safely carry 20% of their body weight including the saddle and rider. Please be sure your donkey is prepared to work, meaning be an adult and in condition to work. This means that a miniature donkey weighing 300 pounds can carry 60 pounds great for a small child. Donkeys should be full-grown before attempting to do any form of heavy work. Percentage calculator. Donkeys that are sick or geriatric cannot do heavy work without causing serious harm to the animal.

Miniature donkey age three.

Mammoth donkey six or seven depending on the height of the donkey
