Yup...Burro is used to distinquish them from a donkey by size just as a pony is distinquished from a horse by size even though they are both Equus ferus caballus. Jun 11, 2013

Equus asinus, which is a donkey/burro/ass. Donkey and Burros (Spanish for donkey) are the same thing, though Burro is often used to distinguish small donkeys. I think Burro got to be used for small donkeys in the Americas because the Spanish brought over small ones on ships.

Jackass plus female horse = a mule. The other way doesn't work. Mules are sterile too.

Piper says he used to work in Tijuana but I think he is just telling stories. Jun 11, 2013
