Our son Jacob purchased a breaking donkey a year or so ago she is awesome. He has a video on our Gizmo Angus Facebook page of her breaking a calf that is over 800 pounds. The video is first day hooked up the calf was a handful but Lacy just does her job and after a few days of being worked Jacob will start leading them around. If they give him any problem he will put them back on Lacy for a little longer. I was skeptical at first but have to admit it works great.

I don’t know why the video won’t play but you can go to the Facebook page to see a couple minutes worth of it. The calf was not happy!

Not at all, Lacy is a sweet girl our granddaughter loves her and I think Lacy loves her! All Ella has to do is holler and here she comes. When you hook her up to work she is all business.

I think I figured something out the video works on my computer but not my ipad. The heifer was a twin that mamma wouldn't take last year, she turned out pretty dang good for a twin.

Just a suggestion........A neoprene saddle girth is great for around the donkeys neck. You can kae a lead rope with a heavy brass snap on both ends. The end towards the donkey. just snap both ends of the girth together by the D rings. never comes off, and does a great job of spreading the pressure on the donkeys neck. Also, designed not to gauld the skin.
Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will pass it on to Jacob. I don't do anything with Lacy except feed her potato chips (her favorite) My days of breaking calves is long past.
