It could definitely be "Happy Ramadan," but in Jewish culture that's usually only applied to Jewish holidays. You could also just say "Ramadan Mubarak" to any Muslim in Israel.

"The beautiful donkey" would, I believe, be החור היפה - the definite article has to be attached to both the noun and the adjective describing it, "the beautiful the donkey", otherwise it's a copula.

I'm not an expert, I'm just a fellow learner, so hopefully someone will come along and confirm or explain.

Probably a typo, but it's החמור היפה. The grammatical explanation is exact, though :).
