    When I was in high school a buddy and I had the bright idea to buy two donkeys at the local sale barn I think we gave like $15 for both. I have always used horses rode and packed. So we packed the donkeys and rode our good saddle horse biggest disaster I have ever been around probably would have been better if we knew anything about donkeys and worked with them before 15 mile pack in (young and dumb) anyway from what I seen donkeys are to smart for there own good and hard headed when they make up there mind no man is gonna change it for them. Just my experience

    As with any animal you get what you put into them. These guys did great and even did a parade the other weekend. Off to Montana next week.

    6 miles in to the wilderness in NM, 2k feet of gain. Also did a 12mile out and back resupply about half into our 11 day trip.

    I had to laugh eastmont when I looked at the first set of photos. In the 2nd pic, the guy standing behind the donkeys looked like he had a huge gut and I wondered, "How did that lard-ass ever make it up the mountain?" Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was just the bow making a new outline. Now it's obvious what it is. Hah!!

    haha, you can see some big guys from texas up there, but they come in on draft mules! You have to earn your miles there.

    Montana's Lee Metcalf Wilderness. 11 days and 8 miles in, lots of snow. Got the mountain goat through. Elk were scarce, lots o grizzlies and saw one wolf. Donkeys are awesome. 120lbs out.
