DID YOU KNOW?
Miniature donkeys were first imported to the United States in the late 1920's from the islands of Sicily and Sardinia where they are now extinct.
The original importers were wealthy American families who kept these little pets on their estates as extended family
A miniature donkey at his adult height should not be taller than thirty six inches at his shoulders. A good
average height by today's standards would be thirty-four inches/with the smallest
around 28 inches.
Miniature donkey may live to be thirty or more years old
