    Couldn't really see your mare at all, since she was too far away. Next time, have someone hold her while you take the photos. She is halter broke, right??

    I think she meant striped because she is a pinto.

    The person on the mini donkey needs to carry the donkey for a while.

    Barbie's weight does not look bad to me.

    He is WAY too big for that poor little donkey, so has no business smacking it-no matter HOW hard-to make it go when he is just too big for the poor thing. Come on now, OP-as a general rule, if your feet can touch the ground when on it, you should not be.

    Oh God. This gets worse all the time. Is it a donkey or a mule? If it is a donkey and he is not gelded, he will breed your mare. Maybe already has.

    Of course that man is too big to ride the little donkey/mule - whatever it is.

    Maybe it's just me, but she doesn't appear to be gaiting. I see a distinct trot. Are you certain she's a TWH?

    Gaited breeds can, and do, trot, especially when at liberty! Their gait is just another "gear". Many gaited horses gaits don't come naturally to them. Some won't ever gait well, if at all. If she were under saddle or going a short distance. It might be a different story.

    That could be it. My experience with gaited horses is limited to Paso Finos and Missouri Fox Trotters, neither of which I've ever seen trotting. Was just curious!

    And even worse, just saw that apparently the horse is now sore, lame or getting an infection:

    I'm really not trying to be rude, but this
    Whole situation has "accident waiting to happen" all over it. It's really a wonder you, or your "friends" haven't killed your horse, the donkey or yourselves.

    The mosquito brothel needs to go! It's dirty and disgusting! The bucket you got is nice, she will need about 3 more of those, especially when its hot out. Walmart sell large round tubs with the rope handles. That will be good for her for the day.

    Mini's CANNOT be ridden, unless you weight under 60ish pounds.

    Your lack of knowledge is reckless. I would find a barn and volunteer there. Get a GOOD foundation for EVERYTHING horses, feeding, proper care (vet, farrier, chiro, dentist), handling (lunging, leading, appropriate correcting), how to handle emergencies, etc!

    In the mean time hire an experienced horse person (and not that guy in the video riding an animal that weights as much as he does) to supervise you.

    This is an animal that... should... Weight 10x the amount you do! It has a heart, a brain and feelings. Owning horses isn't all rainbows, unicorns, princess and riding off into the sunset on you BFF. You really need to take caring for a living breathing animal seriously!
