    Hey Hi Katja, I used to be a dressage rider back in the day. My dressage trainer actually taught me to long line and eventually to drive. I am retired from riding now but My goal when I got my Percheron was to do driven dressage and eventually Combined Driving... Couldnt afford it. Sigh.

    Anyhoo Welcome..... VBG.

    Deb, I will be driving my donkey mama when she weans her foal, and eventually I'll drive them both as a pair. I have several friends that are seriously into driving and compete in CDE's, etc. Cool sport!

    I saw a donkey for sale in the internet classifieds in manila for php390,000 just over $9000. A camel is $14000 trained. Local horses are $200+ so I will have to just buy some ears for a horse to wear.

    That'd better be a fancy donkey for $9K!

    Here are my two little sweeties. I got the mama to be a companion for my weanling filly last fall, as my filly wasn't ready to be turned out with my two big geldings yet. I named my donkey Mary Poppins.(I call her Ms. P.) Turns out she was pregnant. (she was a rescue.) June 2 at 6:30 am, little Dochie arrived. (Dochie is short for Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, in case you are wondering.)

    **** cute ee-awes

    There are probably only a few donkeys in the hole country.

    Any imported animal is pricey. A nubian OR la mancha goat is $1000. I am sending Bernie off with $60 to buy 2 local goats and bring me change.

    The set up for AI to get 50 straws of goat semen and a liquid nitrogen container is about $1000 without shipping and customs and ag dept fees. That would give you about 25 F1 crosses with a 50% loss.

    An F1 there is $160 F2 $220 F3 $360
