I was wondering how many donkey or mule owners we have on here? :)
I used to own a minitature mule but he passed away last january for unknown reasons. Here is a picture, his name was Henry

And now after Henry I needed a pasture buddy for Sampson so I got Ezra! He's a year and a half old donkey. He's a sweetie and my little man! :)

When I bought him

Meeting the new boarder when he came

Those are from this fall :)
So I wanna see your donkeys and mules!

I don't own any now but used to raise them and trained a lot of them. I love them. They are so smart and have a lot more reasoning power than horses. They take a lot longer to train and there are some things they learn differently than horses but I absolutely love them.

Main stumbling block with training a mule --- you have to be smarter than the mule --- easier said than done.

People definitely underestimate them, a lady on our H/J circuit shows her mule and he kicks butt jumping!
