driving my mini-donk
I will be starting ground driving soon!
currently in the process of searching for a reasonably priced harness - so I have made my own out of an old fleece english girth (it fits COMPLETELY around my donkey! lol) and added a rope breast collar with some loops for my reins and we are all set for her first driving lesson =)
spring farm work has to be done first THEN I get time to start playing with the minis more ;)
*note* I will never actually hook anything up to her until we get a real harness.. but it suits the purpose for teaching.. minis are a major fad around here now so even used harnesses are selling for as much as new ones
That's great! Have you driven before?? You will love it.
I've driven before but never owned my own, so I'm excited to have one that I will be able to hitch up whenever I want (eventually!)
That sounds oh so cute!!!
Pictures are a must! :wink:
Have fun with it and let us know how it goes. :D
Love to see pics when you get started!
I'm sure there will be lots of pictures!
It's gotten cold again here =( hoping it will be warm again next week and I'll begin working with her again
I sure wish I could be saying the same thing!
It is going to be awhile before I can start working horses again, we still have a couple feet of snow on the ground here. :-(
you need a sleigh! ;)~
PICS! Haha, I have two mini donks. One I trained to pull a cart and sleigh, but she's pregnant now, and her almost 2 year old colt is just learning to ground drive while I pull the cart behind me. Keep us updated on your progress!
That would be fun, maybe one day I'll have one.
I have thought about hooking up a sled for the fun of it! Kind of worry about the ice under foot though...
