If you see your brother's donkey or his ox fallen on the road, do
not ignore it. Help him get it to its feet. Deuteronomy 22:4
Miniature donkeys are a very sociable breed with great personality
and determination. If you only have one donkey, it is a very lonely donkey.
They make excellent pets, demanding attention
(if I go to any pasture without first paying attention to my spotted donkey
friend, Boomer - his namesake "Hee Haw" can be
heard for miles around!) This breed has supported a steady market for years.
They are easily kept on small acreage. They were first brought into this
country to be used to haul ore out of mines which made their small size
and easy upkeep an asset. They come in a variety of colors including spotted,
grey dun, sorrel, brown, and black.
The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If she had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared her. Numbers
They are shown across the country and registered in several organizations. Breeding jennets are usually between 32" and 36" at the withers and breeding jacks between 29" and 33". With proper care they can live for 25-40 years. They have one foal a year (with gestation period of 11-13 months). Donkeys are marked with a distinctive cross across their back and withers. (Read the legend below.) Another interesting donkey story can be read in the Bible in the book of Numbers 22:21-33. This donkey was smarter than his master.
The ox knows his master, the donkey his owner's manger... Isaiah 1:3

that the little gray donkey carries a cross on his back. Most people
don't know the legend of the donkey's cross. The Story is told that
the little donkey that had been Jesus' mount on Palm Sunday,
came to the hill of Calvary.

Mention of "DONKEY" in the Bible:
Numbers 22:21Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and
went with the princes of Moab. 22 But God was very angry when he went,
and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding
on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw
the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand,
she turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat her to get her back on
Isaiah 1:3 The ox knows his master, the donkey his owner's manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand."
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Matthew 21:1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on
the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, "Go to
the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there,
with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says
anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them
John 12:14Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written, 15 "Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey's colt."
2 Peter 2:15 They have left the straight way and wandered off to
follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness.
16 But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey -- a beast without
speech -- who spoke with a man's voice and restrained the prophet's madness.
