My baby girl, Honor. She was born on 9-11-12 and is three months old. Only 2 months in this picture though. She's now about 3x fuzzier O_O she has all of the primitive markings and personality to boot. She's VERY mouthy though and if you tell her not to do something, you'd better bet she's going to be doing it in a few minutes! She loves to steal my coffee and sprites when I'm working and not paying attention to her, and pawing at mom's harness or picking up corn stalks and sticks in her mouth and carrying them like a puppy.

James, our gelded 'protector' donkey who really does nothing but protect his food from the other horses...LOL. He's Tempest's best friend though, and loves scratchies under the chin. Not a fan of kisses though as you can see and since he came to us originally from a petting zoo, he still refuses to let us touch his ears the poor guy.

Jigsaw, our mini mule colt. He's about to be weaned and sent off to his new show home though. Such a cutie! I don't have any recent pictures of him but he's a little buggar with a bit 'afro' and lots of 'tude xD He has primitive markings but you can't really tell in the picture.

Tempest, our now 8 (I think? I loose track) month old mini mule, only a few months old in this pic.

And lastly, Pedro (Just Dun It) our stud Jack. He's sweet but can be a real pain, as any stud insists on being at times... ;)

He has the loudest, most obnoxious bray...

Donkey is usually used to describe domestic ones and burro generally refers to wild ones, or very very sure footed ones. And there are around 25 different donkey breeds that I'm aware of and burros are listed as a breed itself, but more than that exist.
Other countries have more varieties than the US does.
Donkeys have a big range, from the minis to the Mammoth Jacks, which I believe are the size of horses.

My burro was born wild and not captured until he almost two years old and sold through the BLM and from what I know, that is how the BLM refers to them.
There are minor differences I have noticed between him and Rosie, who is a small standard donkey.... most notable is how he thinks and how suspicious he is of things that domestic animals think nothing of.
He has a mind like an elephant too.

Merle is a, almost, 7 month old standard spotted jack...which will soon be a spotted gelding sometime this month. Had no idea what we were doing, we've only had horses for 6 or 7 months and they came trained...so we'll see how bad we screw this up. Have read Donkey Companion twice now and every other donkey book and equine book the library has. Only takes one person to put his halter on now so we're proud of that...and he will walk with you as long as you have a pocketful of treats.

I am sure that is what he was thinking too!

This is our donkey, Donkey. :3

I think he's 11 now. He's supposed to be my mom's pet, but guess who got stuck taking care of the little bugger? He doesn't even like me.
