Chairman | Miniature Mediterranean Donkey Association, UK

Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys are a separate breed of donkey originating from the islands of Sardinia and Sicily.

Now almost extinct in their native land, these diminutive little animals are a popular pet in the USA, especially in the southern states.

Approximately 700 have been imported into the UK from North America and are fast becoming very popular here in Great Britain.

The most common colour is grey dun with chocolate highlights. Other colours include brown, black, slate grey, sorrel, spotted, piebald, skewbald and cream.
