IMDR Rating Program: IMDR has a special donkey rating program.
This computer generated conformation grading system is unique and of great
help to new buyers. When considering buying an adult donkey with IMDR registration
papers, ask the seller what the IMDR Rating is on the donkey. Ratings are
based strictly on conformation. A Two, Three or Four Star rating means
that you are purchasing a quality animal. Write IMDR for details.
