Can a mini donkey breed a standard size horse?

I have a chance to buy the sweetest little miniature donkey jack, but I am worried that he might breed my paint mare. Is that even possible?

That's the next step. I was just wondering if it was necessary.

If you don't have the utmost need for a breeding animal, then yes, it is necessary. Not only will he behave better, but he won't Houdini the fence every time a mare within 2 square miles goes into heat.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

They certainly can. And even if he can't figure out a way too (which he will.. most mares are incredibly willing.. fricken hussies), it's still going to be a pain in the neck when she's in heat and he wants her and she wants him..
