A mini so­lu­tion

EQUUS - - Letters -

In “Help for a Lonely Mare” (Con­sul­tants, EQUUS 477) some­one had a lonely mare and was hav­ing dif­fi­culty find­ing a suit­able pas­ture­mate. I have dealt with the same is­sue, with both a mare and a geld­ing. The so­lu­tion was sim­ple and worked equally well with both horses: My far­rier sug­gested that a minia­ture don­key might do the trick. He was cor­rect; my mini don­keys have been ab­so­lutely ideal as pas­ture­mates. They are easy to get along with, in­ex­pen­sive to keep and my horses loved them.
