Donkey are a perfect compromise. Your kid wants a horse or a pony. You don't think you can afford one. Get a donkey! They are both less expensive to buy and less expensive to keep than a horse. If you get the right donkey, personality is very important, they will bond with the family and become quite affectionate. Highly intelligent, it is easy to train them to draw a cart and come when called. They will graze or forage for much of their diet and need only a lean to and an indoor stall for shelter.
