Miniature donkey question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently got 2 miniature donkeys. A 7 month old jack, who will be gelded as soon as he drops, and a 4 year old Jenny. My Jenny is in heat and I caught my little guy trying to mount her. He's quite a bit smaller, so I don't think he can reach, but she stood still for him. What are the chances he is fertile at his age, even though he hasn't dropped? I'm not looking to have a baby.

There have been rare cases of donkey jacks that sired foals when they were only about 6 months of age, so it's not impossible. Are you sure that his testicles are undescended, and not just small?
