I was wondering if you have some advice on how I could introduce/train my new donkey (long eared Irish Donkey) Lenny to being rugged during the bitter cold winter months offered here in Canberra NSW Australia. He doesn’t have a very long or thick coat and while I have a stable for him, he is also new/scared of this if ‘enclosed’.
He is very timid.
Should I try to train him to accept a rug or simply work on him becoming comfortable in the stable, hoping he will remain in rather than out, in feral weather?
For a detailed response to your question, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
I do cover blanketing in DVD #2 of my Training Mules and Donkeys DVD series offered in the STORE on my website at https://www.luckythreeranch.com. We also have alot of TRAINING TIPS under TRAINING that you might find helpful.
