    Donkeys are great herd protectors and are very friendly and love attention! Mules are also good also if you are going to be rescuing horses mules are great as they can't reproduce, making them happy to take in yearlings with no mums!

    I rarely hear anything out of my donks. If Chico is braying... something is very wrong and I will stop what I am doing to check it out.
    He always wants to be near me and prefers to actually be touching me if I am standing still. Kind like holding my hand... it's very endearing.
    Rosie will put her nose down on top of my boots and drool on them while I scratch her ears. All... day...long...

    I would love to have one but one of my mares would kill one in heart beat. It aint even worth trying.

    I totally love my donkey!! He is the sweetest, calmest thing ever and I would put anyone on him and not worry. My little 8 year old sister used to ride him all around the property bareback and never once did he spook or anything. I couldn't imagine life without him. And by the way, the only time he honks is when something is wrong or he is hungry;)

    Our donkey is only 7 months old now but so far there's not much I don't like about him...the heehaw is just icing on the cake. The only thing that I find different or difficult with training him is you can push him off you or pull him towards you. Donkeys lean in to pressure..and don't let up. They're defensive is run into it til it falls...not run away from it. But they are all stomach. Treats will get you everywhere with a donkey

    We have one female mini. We got her to kill rattlesnakes because we have too many of those around here! She only hollers when she hears me coming out to the pasture, or as I drive home. The neighbors say they always know when I get home, lol.

    She gets along well with all 4 horses, but has a special bond with the lead mare who protects her from the others and lets her eat with her. She always wants to be close to me and follows me when I ride out to the arena or down the driveway. Then she stops. Anything else is too far, lol!

    Only problem is keeping her weight down. In summer, she wears a grazing muzzle (pony size) which is great because all mine are 100% pasture fed in summer. In winter,she gets thick and it's hard to control her feed and keep her with her herd.

    Just got a cart and working on harness to drive her!

    I love that donk!
