Riders: Not yet started undersaddle
Chrissy Bergwin, who donated the Pickle pony to us two years ago has now donated Sven the donkey. We picked him up on the 21st of March 2009. It was pretty much love at first site!!
We are learning a lot about donkeys, mostly that they do not learn the same way horses do and training is proving to be quite a challenge! But he is so quiet and so very sweet. When you look in his kind, soft eyes your heart just melts. And when he brays, the whole neighborhood knows it!
Sven has settled into life at Stable Life. He is frequently loved on by little people and he loves to get his butt scratched. When he is hanging out with you he will turn his butt around and back his bumper up to let you know that he's waiting for it. If you're sitting a spell in the pen he will practically sit on top of you until you get the hint and give him a good scratch!
True to old cartoons with the carrot on the stick, this boy is very food motivated and you will be his very best friend if you've got a treat in your pocket for him!
Sven is currently being started undersaddle. We can't wait to ride him and get him more active in our program.
