Wrangler’s Donkey Diary

I first saw Wrangler on Facebook: “Wrangler is a SWEET 2008 model 13.2 hand gray with red saddle donkey gelding…No problems with worming or spring shots. He wilderness camps with hot wire fencing or hobbles…My six year old daughter has been riding him for the past 3 years (I ponied him most of the times). He is very good with children…The only reason for sale…daughter has gone to a horse! This is a wonderful riding donkey…he is NOT a pasture buddy. He really likes a job and will take care of you on the trails.”

After losing my own Little Jack Horner in 2014, I really missed having my little gray donkey in the first stall and run at the barn. Wrangler looked so much like L.J. and seemed like he would be a really nice animal, so we bought him. I have not been disappointed at all. Not only does he look like Little Jack Horner (only 2 inches taller), but he has the same exuberant and willing personality that made L.J. so great! Wrangler is everything she said he would be and I couldn’t love him more! Wrangler wants to let everyone know about his experiences at the Lucky Three Ranch. So, we decided to include his personal diary on the LTR website so he can help people to learn how to get the very best from their donkeys.

There was no way to grab loose skin around it like there was with prior sarcoids on other animals. I shaved the area ...

He loves to smile for the camera and eat oats from the fanny pack. Just tell him to and he perks his ears for the pictures! Wrangler is now an 11 year old gelding and softens my loss of Little Jack Horner in 2014! Wrangler is ...
