Donkey are a recurring race of animals from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Breath of the Wild. They are equines smaller and stockier than horses with shorter manes, though are depicted as stronger than they look as than are capable of pulling and carrying heavy loads. Like Horses, Donkeys are know to be native to both Termina and Hyrule. Unlike horses, all donkeys encountered in The Legend of Zelda series are all shown to be domesticated.
A donkey is used by Cremia to pull her milk wagon. If Link helps Romani repel Them on The First Night, he can help Cremia deliver her milk to the Milk Bar the following morning, protecting the cart and donkey from the Gorman Brothers who seek to destroy her cargo in order to hurt Romani Ranch's business. Like Hyrulean donkeys, Cremia's donkey is shown to be quite strong as it is capable of pulling a wagon carrying Cremia, Link, and a large supply of milk.
According to the Hyrule Compendium, donkeys are raised as livestock in the countryside and as a result they do not exist in the wild. Donkeys can sometimes be found in stables throughout Hyrule, they also frequently accompany merchants such as Agus, Cambo, and Chumin who favor them over horses due to their greater strength. Unlike horses, Donkeys cannot be killed making them one of the few animals in Breath of the Wild that cannot be killed.
Link can take a picture of one with the Camera Rune to add it to the Hyrule Compendium, where it appears as entry number 006. According to their entry, they can be found in Greater Hyrule which is a term used to refer the entire country of Hyrule.
