Thanks! Getting one at a time will be a TON easier! I actually hadn't thought of just doing that for a while, and deciding what's best.


I am a rider, and I ride and have ridden at a few stables but only 3 horses have connected with me, one I barely saw again and two were very used young mares. I have ridden a lot of others though, and plan to switch it up as much as possible. I also have to go there at a specific date and time and do everything by a specific time, and I would like to ride freely whenever I want and care for a much larger animal. She will be for pleasure riding mostly, and petting.

So my friend had been wanting to board her horse at my papas farm, and I said no because a donkey and pony and a horse would be too much for him, and I hadn't thought of this! Since donkeys are so expensive and I cannot find any for sale, I thought, why not just have a pony and then my friends horse can be the companion? She would pay regular boarding fees, which would help support our pony and the farm with extra to spare, and it would give her horse a nice place to live and they would be companions! We would of course make sure they were comparable before anything, and get a mentor to help with the two of us


(Btw, we are best friends so this would work out perfectly!)

What do you think?

Boarding rarely makes money. You might be able to help defer some of the costs, but definitely not all. I wouldn't bank on it supporting your horse too.

Also, I wouldn't take care of other people's animals without knowing how to take care of your own. If you were keeping your horse at her house and something happened because of a lack of knowledge how would you feel?

also if you do get a donkey you need to make sure your worming program is spot on for the donkey as they can carry lung worm without showing signs,

We have opted out of getting a donkey :)
