He looks big here, but he is only about 24 inchs tall. Skeeter is the size of a big dog, he will get to be about 30 inches tall, right now he is small enough I could stand with my legs on either side touching the ground. they live to be 25 to 35 years old and make great family pets, quick learners. some people train them for petting zoos, therapy pets for nursing homes and use them in Nativity scenes at Christmas.
If you are in to hiking, they make perfect pack animals, Kathy plans to train Skeeter to pull a cart to help with ranch work. She and her husband Robert have 7 horses and 2 dogs and now a beautiful little donkey. Everyone who lives on the ranch has a JOB
I think the below photo shows Skeeter has a very talented make up artist to get all that eye shadow just right. Can you tell I am in love.
Donkey's are: Cute, entertaining, fun to watch, and I found most of the above info Minature Donkeys
