Mini Donkeys

Louise Johnson of Greenlaw was showing off a donkey with a difference back in May 1990.

Crackerjack, pictured with his owner above, was one of 15 Sicilian miniature donkeys - the only ones of their species in Britain, having been imported from the USA. The plan was for some to go to private zoos, while others would go to breeders.

The miniature donkeys, measuring only 36 inches in height, are incredibly loyal and friendly to their owners, and can live for 25 years.
