DESCRIPTION

The donkey is part of the horse family and has been used for hundreds of years as a pack animal. They are called beasts of burden because for many years they have worked with humans to haul many things for long distances. A female donkey is called a jenny, the male is called a jack and similar to horses, young donkeys are called foals. When a donkey is bred with a horse their offspring are called mules. Donkeys make distinctive sounds, called brays, which can last up to 20 seconds and can be heard for over 1 mile (1.6 km). They defend themselves by biting, striking their front legs, or by kicking their hind legs. Donkeys have a long-standing reputation of being very stubborn, but once a connection of trust has been met they can be very dependable.
