    You know what you're doing wrong?

    ....Not supplying us with pictures!!!

    It sounds like you're doing a great job! Donks are stubborn as, well, a donkey, but it sounds like you're doing all the right things for him and making fast progress!

    I'm in agreement about re-evaluting keeping this guy. Not only are you in the same danger as those coyotes, but any equine can spin around and kick you faster than I can write about it, and you would be in a world of hurt.
    I have a friend who adopted a BLM mare and foal. It took her one full year to get this mare to let her enter the stall and look forward to it. Don't know if it will take you THIS long, but you are looking at months of retraining.
    Please make sure your Vet realizes how dangerous this donkey is. My Vet can do many things, but I wish that she would let me give her a primer on horses bc she's been bitten in the face and kicked in her shins. She was about to give up treating horses, but I told her to give them all up but mine bc she can do yearly shots, etc. with my 3 and I don't even need to be there for them to be calm and obedient.
    Perhaps a dart gun with a sedative would work best. Don't count on Ace Promazene. The horse/donkey/mule needs to be perfectly calm for one hour, or the ingestable drug won't work. I owned an animal who couldn't be wormed without Ace, although he could be worked and ridden and trimmed without it.
    I'm thinking that the previous owners never thought about training for medical treatments for this donkey and THAT is why he was sold.

    Sounds like you are making great progress, and in a short period of time! Apparently food and itchy spots are his weakness. Keep up the good work!
