My Donkeys-RIDING DONKS

I posted this in the horse section too, but I figured I'd share it with you longear people. :)

I have two donkeys: One mammoth jenny (9 years) named Lass, and one large standard gelding named Charlie. Charlie is younger and so he is lightly started and green, but already pivots on the hind end, disengages the hind, steers (starting to neck rein too), halts, walks, trots, and has ponied other equines! I started him, Lass was green broke when I bought her. I trail ride them all over the area, and trailer out to new places to ride each week.

Lass:







Charlie:

Aww thanks for sharing. My husband wants a mammoth jack in the worst way. He's already really bonded with his mini donk and wants him supersized so they can spend a whole lot more time together.

I think Lass is going to be one of the forum's special "horses", like Wallaby's Lacey. We will need regular pictures of her, since her cuteness runneth over.

Beautiful donks!!! What is the harness contraption thing on the hindquarters though? I've seen it on a few other mules/donks before too, and have always been curious.

its breeching. It's mane use is on mules and donkeys, because they are mutton withered, you also use them on horses with mutton withers, mutton withers are equines with very litter withers to keep the saddle in place, therefore. This keeps the saddle from slipping forward.
