Another Augie and Spuds Adventure: Pulling a Drag – Round Pen
Mini donkeys Spuds and Augie are always up for a new challenge–like adding a new element to their round pen workout routine!
“Hey, Spuds! What do you think she has in mind to do today with all these straps?”
“Oomph! She told me to go forward just like we did before, but something is holding me back…oh, now it is coming behind me! What’s happening?!”
“You’re attached to a tire! Here, follow me!”
“Oh boy, now it’s my turn, Augie!”
“Don’t worry, Spuds. I’m right behind you…this tire’s not that scary.”
“Excuse me, Spuds! I had to stop to pee. Just go ahead and pass me and I’ll catch up to you when I’m done!”
“That was really easy, but now what is she doing, Augie?”
“Whoa! Hey, Spuds, where are you going?”
“Sorry, Augie, she forgot to say ‘Gee!”
“Okay, now this is MUCH better and a lot easier to pull as a team!!!”
They look great Meredith! Learning can be fun! Seems like they enjoyed their lesson with you. Very smart little guys, cute too!
Hi there!! Where can I get a harness set up to pull a tire. I’d like to train my mini donkey to pull a small arena drag and a cart but I have no idea how to hook him up to a tire or drag. First time mini owner here
I got the harness for my minis from http://www.chimacumtack.com. The information about driving training can be found for free on my website at https://www.luckythreeranch.com under TRAINING/TRAINING TIPS #109 – #120 or you can purchase my DRIVING DVD #3 and printed Tutorials from the TRAINING TIPS at http://www.luckythreeranchstore.com.
