Few things are more cute than a miniature donkey. They have large eyes and long ears and are covered with a soft cote. They are also super friendly and affectionate, making them even cuter! The miniature Sicilian Donkey can grow up to around 36 inches tall and weigh between 200 to 300 pounds.
Much like their larger counterparts, they are clever, a bit stubborn and very social. They are often kept as pets but also used as special service animals or utilized for animal based therapy.They really enjoy being a part of a group.
Male miniatures are called “jacks” and females are called “jennets.” Their coats come in a few color variations, with the most common being gray or chocolate in color. Known as being hardy, they can live up to 30 years.
