Donks, mules, or even just a horse with super big ears.
Here is my Rosie and Chico.
I got them not quite a year ago off a farm where they had been very neglected. Rosie's hooves were in horrendous condition and she couldn’t walk very well. It's been slow going with her hooves and the trimming and while they are not "there" yet they are coming along nicely.
She's 17, had several foals when she was younger, is patient, kind, loves her ears rubbed and thinks peppermint candy is the stuff of dreams.
Chico is a 14 year old BLM burro. His feet were super long, but nearly as bad as Rosie’s. He's quirky, funny, and very lovable, but is highly suspicious of anything that looks like a treat.
He is an awesome watch donkey and brays when anything is wrong or out of place. If I am out in the pasture he wants to be near me, touching me, or helping me fix things.
