There are several types of mounts in ArcheAge. Each race has its own unique mount obtainable via quest at very early levels. Mounts gain experience while being summoned (they do not take away experience from the player but level on their own). The higher the level of a mount, the more skills it unlocks (mount specific) and the higher level equippment it can use.
Besides mounts there are battle pets that can assist to some degree in combat, which level the same as mounts. One can only have summoned a pet or a mount at the same time. Both have health and can be attacked and die if one is not careful. To revive a mount or pet there are pet healing potions or for a fee Stablemaster will help.
The Donkey can be bought at Mirage Island with Gilda Stars or through the second step of the Trade Run guide quest. Donkeys come in 5 color options (black, white, grey, brown and ..?). More about donkeys at the donkey page.
