My equine are: an Arabian gelding, Ed (SA Dunramblin' Man), two mules - Cyrus and Starla and now Cookie the donkey. Starla is broke to ride but is too young at 2 to be ridden. Mules, donkeys and Arabians' vertebrae don't fuse until they're around 5 years old. So Starla needs to be saddled and ground worked (make her do things while you're NOT riding), Cyrus needs to be saddle broke, Ed needs ridden and now Cookie. I'm planning on installing outside lights at the barn and paddock for after hours riding (since it gets so dark so quick).
Have a good evening, everyone!
