He says: "Mmm huh.... got all that on film, did ya?"

THAT is the donkey they modelled "Donkey" from, for the movie "Shrek". Can't you just hear him saying , "And in the mornin', AHM makin' waffles!"

I wish he had a personality like Shrek's Donkey. He's grumpy all the time.

He has a mind like an elephant too.
Now, how tall would you consider a 'small standard donkey'?

This guy I am bringing home on Saturday. He's alittle smaller then my waist and I'm 5'2. I was told mini donk but what do you think? And here's my pic to show him off

I'm pretty sure he would be a mini. There is a chart out there (because I forget exactly off the top of my head) and if you google mini donk you can find it. I wanna say the same-ish height as mini horses, around 32" more or less.

My Rosie is a small standard size and is the same size as a larger Shetland, 11.2hh I think and about 350 lbs.
My friends true mini donk is only 9hh.

He's very cute, and we shall need more pics once he arrives home.
And, a name! What's his name?

He has a 'real name' but they just call him donkey. I cannot remember his real name off the top of my head. He's 3 and will be a companion to my horses! And I was stunned when they said he doesn't need to see a farrier. He wears down his own feet perfectly well see if that continues though when he's with me

Mine isn't TECHNICALLY a 'long ear' but, she certainly does have long ears! This is the pony I used to own, Leia:

Just wanted to share because she has the longest ears I've seen on any pony!
