Our little donkey is soft. I know when you look at him you would think that his hair would be more coarse and bristly feeling but he is soft. This is our first year to have one through the winter. I am wondering if they shed out much? He didn't seem to get the really thick coat of hair like the horses do in the winter. Bear/Kay
My mules are soft coated. My Jack has more coarse hair than the horses. He does shed off naturally but at times he looks pretty funny. The first year we had him, he shed off except for just above his eyes. He looked really funny with his big bushy eyebrows! Wish I had a picture of him from then.
