My name is Gert Vorster. I am the proud owner of the first miniature donkeys in South Africa.
 
It all began at the beginning of 1998 when I got an e-mail from my son, Werner, who resides in the USA. He mentioned to me that there are miniature donkeys in America. At first I could not believe it. As his Dad and with my superior wisdom, it was my responsibility to inform him that you do not get miniature donkeys and what he had seen were miniature horses, NOT miniature donkeys. His next e-mail came as a big surprise to me. “I saw a sign, Miniature Donkeys for Sale”, was his response.
 
Nothing could stop me now, and after a few hick-ups and a lengthy importation procedure the first four donks, three jennies and a jack arrived in South Africa. It was a historic day when the four donks (Rocky, Destiny, Olivia and Gina) touched down on South African soil on 30 November 1998. The rest is history now and the donks became my favourite animal by far.
