This is a Miniature Donkey and foal. Just so adorable!! Don and I looked into getting one of these because of their protective instincts. We thought since we breed Miniature Cheviot Sheep, a Miniature Donkey would be perfect! Many people who have sheep use donkeys and mules since they will fight just about anything. We have had an issue with our sheep head butting the dogs .. and sometimes the dogs get bruised and sore from this. I have not seen it happen in a long time.. but..
Anyway - why don't we have a Miniature donkey you ask???? The PRICE! Lets just say that the smaller they are the MORE they cost!
