Wrangler’s Donkey Diary: Modeling Blanket for Trailering





  1. Joy06-06-2019

    Hi Meredith
    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?

    Warmest regards

    That Is a great idea! I am trying to find blankets for my mules and donkeys but I need some help. First what blankets do you use for your donkeys and mules and what do you like about them?
