Agility training!


I am lucky enough to teach animal training at my school. This was after yesterday’s session. The grey donkey is probably the most stubborn animal I’ve known, and her trainer is someone who will ask teachers for permission to do something dozens of times in a row, not taking no for an answer. As stubborn as she is, she’s learned to trust him. Here she is performing the behavior he taught her of rising up on the rock. This was after the main training session, she already had her feet cleaned, and we’re all waiting for the other donkey to finish.

As difficult as donkeys are to train, the emotional bond and patience they teach is remarkable!
