    Choosing a donkey

    Yes they do well with mini horses. As far as care, they are pretty much the same. They require less protein than horses. I’d start with the ADMS web site and go from there.

    Anybody here make a Buckboard?

    I built one for a team with a wagon tongue. My late father in law had made the running gear for a wagon that I had built 7 or 8 years ago. So I just made a new wagon for the running gear that was still good. I’m not a carpenter by no means, just did the best I could and “ winged it “.

    blanket trouble

    I agree with candy car, I wouldn’t blanket unless it was extremely cold. They do very well in cold temps.

    Happy Holidays from the Flying Bee Farm, Trenton, TN!

    Welcome I used to have kin folk in Trenton years ago and still have some in Jackson. You’ll love your new minis and will quickly become addicted and will decide that not only is 5 acres not enough but 25 acres isn either.

    I’m thinking of buying an 18’-20’ stock trailer and making a small tack compartment in the front then 2 or 3 straight load stalls and roam for my wagon in the back half.

    Barn Building and Progress

    I don’t think that I would use sand in the stalls. When I get the time to build a new barn I plan to use a dense grade grave. Then saw dust on top of that. It drains good and easy to clean and replace. That’s just my opinion and I’m a big believer in to each their own.

    For Fun: WWYD/Should I?

    I can’t get the picture to enlarage but it looks good from the small picture. I can’t tell if they are bicycle wheels or regular cart wheels. If they are bike wheels keep an eye on them some times they will fold over.

    For Fun: WWYD/Should I?

    I’d say get it. I just built a wagon for my mini donkey team. I haven’t seen the one that you’re talking about but that is what I’d price mine at or more, and then there’s the harness. Of course you need to get another pony/mini to pair up with the mare that you have because your donkey won’t...

    Historical stallions

    There’s nothing wrong with that. we all need some place to go when we get to that age. Buckaroo was a great little showman as a young stud colt. He won every class that I saw him in “ back in the day”.

    colours and changes

    Ike old and out of touch with all these new fancy color. In the old days we would have called him gray, plain and simple. But like I said I’m old and just a simple kind of guy.

    portable round pen?

    I was just thinking about this earlier today. I’m thinking of about somewhere around the 20’ diameter range. As far as what to make it out of I’m still up in the air about that. I’m thinking about maybe using old pallets or possibly pvc piping that I can take apart and move.
