In Case You Didn’t Know, Mini Donkeys Are Real. And You’re Gonna Want One, Trust Me.

There's a simple equation which states that in order to make something cuter, you simply must make it smaller. It's worked for everything from mini cars to mini pigs. So why not miniature donkeys too?

Of all the miniature things out there, they are undeniably the cutest. Let's review the evidence:

Miniature donkeys originated in North Africa, along the Mediterranean coast.
They interbred with similar species in Italy to create what is commonly known today as the Mediterranean Miniature Donkey.
Miniature donkeys were brought to the United States in the 1920s and have thrived here ever since.
Male miniature donkeys are called "jacks." Females are called "jennets" and babies are called "foals."
