Donkey? Or Just Another Jackass?

A *blogger acquaintance had asked me if this were a mule or a donkey, and I got to thinking about it: I really don’t know. So I checked the handy Wikipedia, and here’s the skinny:

  • donkey – a domesticated member of the horse family
  • mule – the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse
  • jackass – a male donkey

So, yeah, you really can’t determine which by this photo!

  2. He is so cute and adorable. I too think it is a donkey as they tend to be shorter. I can relate to your trepidation with petting him and yet wanting to, that must have been a difficult decision. 🙂 And a beautiful quote!
    And thank you very much for mentioning my blog. I really appreciate your kindness.
