Please get in touch with any questions or requirements you may have. The miniature Mediterranean donkey is a true breed, a native to the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Due to their size, miniature donkeys were used to turn grinding stones for grain inside the peasant houses. They were also used to carry water from village wells and supplies into the mountains for shepherds.
There are 18th century wood pictures showing these small donkeys blindfolded and attached to the grain mill, walking in endless circles. Miniature Mediterranean donkeys stand between 30" and 36" high. Two miniature donkeys will require a minimum of one acre of land. Donkeys are herd animals and a single donkey is a very lonely donkey and is unlikely to thrive on its own.

You cannot buy love
You can't buy loyalty so they say
I bought it though the day I bought you.
You cannot buy friendship, tried and true
Well just the same I bought that too.
I made my bid and on the spot bought love and affection, the whole job lot.
So all in all the purchase price was pretty small
I bought a simple trusting heart
That gave devotion from the start
If you think these things are not for sale buy a brown eyed donk with a rope like tail!!!
