    Default FOUND HOME !!! Free to good home: Mini Donkey (mule?)

    We have a 6 year old mini donkey (or mule, some people say there cant be mini donkey's but we purchased him as a mini donkey) who is FREE to a good home. His name is luigi, and he's a gelding. He's chock full of personality and makes a great companion.

    He lives outdoors year round and is a really easykeeper. no blankets, no feed, just hay. Due to unfortunate circumstances at home, we can no longer keep him. He must go to a good home who will take care of him and has a good sense of humor.

    PLEASE PM me for details. Luigi is located in Central NJ.

    here is a video of him and a few kids having fun this past summer:

    Thank you to valerie in upperfreehold, who was able to give this handsome man a home!!

    I just should not even be writing here . . . but, what about coyotes? We live in a rural area north of NYC and I would be concerned for such a small fellow. Is that a worry for mini-donk/mules?

    Default Cutie Patootie!

    He's cute and he can jump. Cute I need, the jumping doesn't matter. How is he with other horses?

    "needs a sense of humor" indicates to me that he gets up to pesky pranks like our old Shetland. Funny but never while it's happening. Things like finding the pony has gone up three steps into the tack room and forgotten how to come back down, like letting all the horses out of their stalls overnight for a romp in the barnyard. (Does it really take a person on either side with a rope and one behind cracking a whip to handle him? )

    Looks like your kids have fun with Luigi, sorry you can't keep him.

    There ARE mini donks. Those folks are just misinformed. sylvia

    PS... upon watching the video, what you've got is indeed a mini mule. Donkey's tails are not like horse tails and that little guy has a horse tail for sure.

    He looks just like a hinny my friend picked up at an auction a few weeks ago. Adorable! I wish I were closer, I'd take him in a second.

    We still have him, he's still availabile! No he does not take 2 leadropes for handling, but given his choice, he'd ditch the 10 year old brats and jump the course himself!

    He's great with other horses, and prefers them. I'm not sure how he'd be with goats, we don't really have any!

    Coyotes are no threat, He lives outside 24/7. Coyotes don't usually target horses, even mini mules! He's pretty damn tough! He's very sweet but loves to play, so he's often seen racing his own shadow, bucking and farting and having a good time - with or without other equine pals.

    He was out with a Clydesdale for a long time - it was quite the sight, seeing a tiny thing and a gigantic thing. They were pals though, but Luigi certainly was head of the herd!

    He'll also let you know when its breakfast time, as well as dinner time. And he's a great guard mule - he brays whenever someone drives up!

    Dang... if I had a place to keep him, he'd be coming to my place in a minute. He is just too cute! Never seen such a cute mini-donk.

    I've had many inquiries but no commitments yet! Can it be possible that a cute mini mule can't find a new home?!?!

    He's the perfect alarm clock, and the most perfect guard...ehh..mule. He always brays when someone pulls in, and lets you know when its breakfast and dinner time!

    Oh my gosh..that is the cutest little fellow that I have ever seen.

    Hope you find him a great home. I wish that I had room for him, but already heading into winter with 15.
