In order to be classified a mini Donkey the animal must be no more than 91 cm at the withers (The tallest point of the body)

Miniature Donkeys were originally used for grinding grain inside people`s houses by turning grinding stones.
Judging by images from those times the mini donkey`s existence was not a pleasant one due to the fact that while working they blindfolded and walked in endless circles.
They were also used to carry water and supplies to shepherds in the fields or on mountains.
Males are called Jacks and females are called Jennets.
The world`s smallest donkey is 25.29 inches tall, and is called KneeHi.
