I know that standard size donkeys pack with great success since they are so rugged, but what about Miniatures? I love to hike and I recently acquired a miniature donkey (who has single handedly turned me to being a full fledged donkey lover, haha) but She's only about 1yr and I heard somewhere that they need to be a certain age to safely pack, what age would you think?
I also have no idea about packing in general or about the supplies needed... any helpful links or information? I have never packed before...
If we were to I would be on the ground her walking with me, is that usual? I know some people ride a horse/donkey and have packed animals 'pony-ing' behind. But is it okay to just walk and she carried some stuff for me? It would be just for fun on short day hikes at most.
Any information on the subject is appreciated!
(is there a better suited forum for this question?)
