DH has a character in his latest book (post CW historic-fiction) that breeds and raises donkeys. His character's favorite donkey is named, "Trot." (Trot's mother is named, "Mudd.")
Man, he's cute--NOW I WANT ONE, TOO!!!! WWWAAAAHHHHH!!!!!
Good luck raising him, and bless you for taking him in. =D

OMG, he's just too stinking cute!!! I can't wait to see more pictures of him as he grows up.


One little word of unsolicited advice though, be careful to not baby him. That's where a lot of people get in trouble with orphaned foals and end up with completely unmanageable weanlings/yearlings. Truthfully, if he were mine, I would separate the mellowest of the horses and put him in with it. That way, he still gets the companionship and herd hierarchy (and punishment when needed) from another equine. If they got along well, I would go ahead and put him out with the herd too within a couple of weeks and just monitor them very closely for a few days.

My foal that wasn't even orphaned developed a bit of an attitude problem and the best thing I ever did with him was put him in a paddock with an alpha horse. Not only did the alpha take him in and 'protect' him from other members of the herd, but Dobe also put the little guy in his place when he tried to stud up.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

smrobs, thank you for the advice. Ill have to figure out which horse to put him with. My gelding didnt like the fact that he tried to nurse on him. Whoops! It would have to be one of the mares, but Im not sure which one yet. Queen is boss of the herd, and Kita is a pushover. Kita is much calmer and seemed to take to him from day 1. She is probably my best choice, what do you think?

Truth is meaningless in the absence of understanding.
