I've found that keeping a lunging whip right behind the butt and pointing with my lunge line hand in the direction I want them to walk is working pretty well with our mini mule filly who is HALF donkey...lol. Start in very small circles so that you can sort of pull him into circling around you, and 'tap tap tap' with the lunge whip. As soon as he takes a step into the circle, praise him and release pressure.
Have you taught him to be sent into or through things yet? That is a very good start for lunging, IMO.
