UH OH, WHAT IS THAT?
Donkeys are very cautious of new things in their environment, including buckets, grain pans, blankets, sprinkler heads; even a baseball cap that you have never worn before can cause your donkey to take pause.
Donkeys are thinkers and they need time to register and process new objects in their environment. Every donkey guardian/caretaker should understand Donkey Psychology and Donkey Personality so you can introduce new objects to your donkey confidently and safely.
Start learning now with our Donkey 101 Online Training Course and watch for our NEW Donkey 102 Online Training Course coming this summer that will go into detail about desensitizing your donkey to new items, including blankets and tarps.
