    Any Suggestions?

    We are looking to move in about a year. I have 2 mini donkeys that have "sensitive" tummies and moving them to a new place with a lush pasture is really scary. I am worried about colic and laminitis. One already had foundered before i got her and another jenny tried to colic on me about 4...

    Need help with a jenny

    My Jenny is the same way...her foal jenny is a yearling. and they have never been seperated. They have gone through the fence to get back together. Butter (mom) has weaned her and will give her a low kick just as a reminder. Milk Dud still will go to her for reassurance and "nudge" her, but...

    Would you have your donkey trained with this person???...rant kind of!

    I understand what you are talking about. I am in an area where there are "horse" people (no finger pointing or offense ment, sorry) but my donkeys are the brunt of jokes all the time. I do get offened because they are so much a part of my life. I have had a hard time finding a trainer that...
