A registered miniature Mediterranean donkey, KneeHi is owned by James, Frankie and Ryan Lee (USA).KneeHi was measured in the standard manner for equine animals: unshod, on even ground, to the top of the withers (to the highest dorsal process of the vertebral body), following a straight line up the fetlock (equivalent to the ankle joint) using a measuring stick with a spirit level (bubble) crossbar to ensure evenness.
