  Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys

These delightful additions to the Australian scene range in height from 28"-32", however the maximum allowable height for registration is 36". The original imports to America were from Sicily, Sardinia, England and Ireland, but have been in America for approximately 35 years.

 


Mules are hybrids - the result of a cross between male Donkey (Jack) and a female horse (Mare) Male mules are called Johns and female mules are called Mollys. A mule has the conformation of a donkey and the disposition of a horse. Mules are known to be sterile. All mammals must have an even number of chromosomes to reproduce successfully. Horse have 64 chromosomes, donkeys have 62 and mules have 63. Nobody knows when the first mules came on the scene , but records show they have been around for centuries. Mules are mentioned in Egyptian scrolls, Arabic writings, and the Bible.
Mule

At Grawood in early Nov 2005 our first Mini Mule was born - the proud parents Paterno (Miniature Mediterranean Jack 30") and Goldie (Miniature horse 30") and the baby is a beautiful palomino John Mule who measured a mere 19" at birth . Later this year we hope to have another 7 baby mules born from mini mares 34" and under. The colours will be very interesting , palomino, skewbald, bay, spotted and gray mares have been mated to Paterno.
Grawood Miniature Farm is possibly the first farm in Australia to produce these delightful little animals
