    Red face Mini donkey and exmoor pony fillies?

    Hi! I'm minuitmouse and I'm new
    I am looking into getting an exmoor filly, and a donkey filly!
    I basically need to know all I can about them!
    Like how to bond them together, should I get a mini donkey or standard sized? What and how much to feed, if the pasture areas are good, will coyotes stay away from the paddock once there are equine in it? I know how to tack up and brush them, ride them, lead them, and basic exercises. But I need to know more! I was on the hamster hideout forum, and they said I need to know a lot more before I buy them, I haven't even made a pasture or field shelter yet! Also please do not get mad at me if I get something wrong... I'm very new to this kind of thing but over the winter months I will learn everything I can possibly learn! And if there is someone that lives close to me I would be glad to have them come and help me out, but I'm not giving out where I live.
    I'm quite young, in my young teenage/old tween years

    I would like to get a filly, there is a specific one. So please don't keep saying I shouldn't, I already know that it would be better if I didn't, but I have had many years of riding and caring, and I will take her to stables to break her, and ride her.


    Thank you!

    If you want something to ride, a mini would not work for you. They are not big enough for that.

    Don't worry I wouldn't ride the donkey at all :) unless she was broken and standard sized, then sometimes I would take her out for a while

    I would only ride the exmoor

    In your situation I really think you need a trainer or a mentor. Keeping horses, especially young ones, is no joke. They are larger powerful animal who can critically injure or kill you.

    Well, think I decided I'm not ready for fillies :( but from the same seller there's a welshxexmoor mix, for cheaper and she's broken but not ridden too much. She's three. but I've heard that they drug horses to make them seem fine when you buy them. I suspect it's true, how to I watch out for that?

    Definitely have a vet check when/ if you buy.

    You take a well educated horse person with you to look at the horse. Then you get a thorough pre purchase exam done by a vet.

    And 3 year olds is way to young. The youngest I'd consider is 8 or 10.

    Okay! My cousin/s are vets, in large/farm animals! They will both have full check ups, before we put them in the paddock together. Do you think having a run in, connected to a room with two stalls and a tack/feed room would be a good idea?


    (Sorry I have pretty random questions, once you get to know me you'll know that's just my personality)

    It should be, but you need a place to store hay.

    Is there any special container/place/thing you can buy/build to keep it in? Every time they are fed hay we will soak it so there is a minimum of dust, we will use pine shavings instead of straw, and keep an open window/s except for harsh weather
