I think I probably would have gone with a standard size donkey just for safety's sake and so that I didn't have to adjust my fencing, but my area seems to be full of minis and lacking standards right now.
But things are going great. I think they are both well adjusted to each other. They were both in the shelter this morning eating out of the same hay bag, and the mini donk likes to follow my mare around their corral now. The donk actually may be eating too much now (she's put on weight already!), so I put the hay box on a pallet to keep it out of her reach.
I'm not sure how often the donk will need to be trimmed, but I can ask my farrier when she comes out tomorrow.
