Mini donkey

The intelligence of the miniature donkey is superior to all other farm animals. They are thinking and reasoning creatures. The miniature donkey is easily trained. They are not so flight oriented that they will hurt themselves or others when startled as is the case with other equine. That intelligence at times makes them appears stubborn. Quite the opposite is true. They do not put themselves in harm's way which can lead to accident or injury. Males are called "Jacks" and females are called "Jennies".
