    For my mammoths, I have side pulls custom made and use that for riding without a bit. I get mine at Ravenwood Harness here in Indiana. I measure points on each ones head and send it to him.. Website is ravenwoodfarm.com

    If you need a saddle, one that work good for the donkeys back are American saddlery Endurance saddle 805

    I have nothing constructive to add besides that you can have strapwork custom-made by Amish or Mennonites in many places (won't help with the age-old saddle problem though - unless you take up driving LOL)... but mainly I am posting just to say MY GOSH those are GORGEOUS animals wowie! And some paint job on 'em, too! <applause and envy> [​IMG]


    Pat, who's always wanted a good mule or standard-size donkey, but been daunted by the whole saddle-fit thing
