Abstract: The aim of the recent study was to determine the morphological characteristics of the donkey population in some areas of Bulgaria. The number of donkeys included in the research was 96, bred in three regions of Bulgaria – Kardzhali, Stara Zagora and Sofia. Four exterior measurements were taken from each donkey as follow: height at withers, body length, chest circumference and cannon bone circumference. Height at withers and body length were measured with measuring stick the two circumferences were taken with measuring tape. The main coat color of the donkeys was determent as part of the study. The estimated mean value for height at withers was 119.8 cm with variation within the range of 99 cm to 148 cm; the mean body length value was 124 cm ranging from 102 cm to 154 cm. Chest circumference ranged from 115 cm to 160 cm, average 136 cm and cannon bone circumference is with mean value of 16 cm varying from 13 cm to 20 cm. More common coat colors of the examined donkeys were brown and grey with the typical dark cross on the back.
