How old does a mini donkey have to be before they are mature enough to start training for riding/driving? I read somewhere it was four. I wanted to make sure it was accurate.
We live on sandy land and it can sometime get quite wet, though dry up just as fast. Do you think this would cause a lot of hoof problems?
If I get the mini as a young (just a yr old) donkey do you think it could learn to get used to having dogs around? I am more concerned with my nephews small dog who doesn't listen to stay out of their pen.
