He is currently living in a field with other donkey's and horses. I don't think he is afraid of people as he comes to the fence for treats but still with no training it could be a problem.
I could pay for his owner to deliver him but she can't do it until Fri. That would only leave me 3.5 days to get him accustomed to our place, to the horses and to teach him where to eat. I feed my horses on opposite ends of our open stalls and breezeway. Their buckets are about 8 feet apart. In other words he will have to know that he goes in last. With a new horse I wait until others are in place and then lead the new horse to his feeding station for a couple of days until they get it.
Another concern is that our lane to the pasture sometimes has a muddy/wet place that he would have to walk thru....I read that donkeys hate water.... I am just about worried sick
Please give me any suggestions and opinions..........
