    My family has an 11 acre property that we visit every weekend. We have chickens and ducks in a pond that we have cared for for over 2 years.

    I have a horse who came from a family that sold his mate. He is a stallion soon to be gelding. I am wanting to get donkey for the less maintenance required for them.

    So, For a few months now I have wanted to train my mini donkey to drive. Please take in mind that don't have the money to buy a fancy schmancy cart and harness. So what did I do? I took all my money I had saved up for the last year and bought a really nice wagon made of soft yet durable rubber...

    Hey Everyone, I am happy to report that thanks to many people, including plenty of great folks from this very forum, my little video, "Rogie's Guided Tour", is now ranked #3 nationally in the Coldwell Banker contest we entered, the idea of which was to "Showcase your home from the point of view...

    Hi there, I hope it is okay to post this! We have entered a video contest being run by our real estate agent's company for clients selling their homes. We were supposed to create a video showcasing our home "from a pet or child's point of view". Well, I went a little crazy and brought my mini...

    Hi guys, I know this is an age old question, but I couldn't find what I was looking for from the search bar. I only have the one horse now, and she's been on her own since Friday. She has been fine, but being a herd animal, I feel it very, very wrong to keep her alone. Luckily, with it being...

    Hi, My three year old miniature donkey will not let anyone put a blanket on her. I would like her to wear a blanket since she lives outside 24/7 and we live where it gets really cold in the winter. Do y'all have any tips on desensitizing her to the blanket and getting her to wear one? Thanks!
