I have two donkeys and I am absolutely clueless on how to train them to do anything! They're so stubborn!! They were NOT my plan to get, my aunt thought it'd be cute to have one and well when we found one, he had a brother... an inseparable brother... so we got two.
I have tried to lead them SOOOO many times with gentle coaxing and food but they will just not have it. One time we had to move one and so we tied it to fourwheeler and that stupid donkey literally locked its legs and let us drag it for like 6 feet.... one cooperates more than the other one, but by cooperate I mean when he escapes he's a bit easier to catch and he will drag me to the where we're going instead of locking his legs and refusing to step a single centimeter.
i've even tried riding these little suckers to get them somewhere.. NOPE. Won't move.
They're about 6 and 7 btw.
Are they really that complex of an animal?!?
