"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

What Age Is My Equine Full Grown?

Driving down the road this week I noted  two brand new foals playing on a horse farm close to our farm they were enjoying the sunshine in the Pacific Northwest and life.  Made me think about how important it is for people to understand just because their tall does not mean they are full-grown.   

Several times people have pulled into oure farm and said “oh what a cute baby donkey you have”, too funny!  Rocket Man is our 18 year old mini donkey 🙂 

Please read as much information as you can on the growth plates to understand what age your beloved donkey, horse or mule is full-grown. Wondering how much weight a mini donkey can carry? 20% including the saddle of the equine. Make sure the donkey, mule or horse is full grown and prepared to carry the weight.

    LOL! My Gotland Mare is 12.2. People ask:
    “How old is she?”
    “Seventeen.” I reply. Then they ask:
    “So she’s full grown?”
