    Donkeys and mules are as individual as they come. He may not be able to live with horses. He was gelded late and I don't know if he will ever be docile with mares ( especially if he bred them).

    A lesson was scheduled and the one who breaks that should call ASAP to let the other party know.

    What a horrible situation. It doesn't sound like the neighbors are ones to "reason with" or "be-friend with treats". I do hope she can find a self care situation or better yet a rental ASAP.

    Why not just feed it yourself? That way you know exactly what you have, what she is getting and you are not having to question who is wasting it. Easier on everyone involved.
