    I have a 5 year old mini donkey He was gelded just today.

    My question is...once his testosterone is out (~3 months per the vet) will he be able to be put in with my goats or will he still play to rough with them?

    At one time I had him in with my billy and they got along well, but Donkey played pretty rough with him. I didn't know if this was because he was intact.

    Thank you for any input.

    Depends on the donkey.. They tend to be a lil rough.. Just keep an eye out and see how they do.. Gelding him may or may not help but sure didn't hurt =)
