Donk is a 48 inch 7 year old gelding. We bought him 3 years ago for my daughter. She has used h im for everything from barrel racing, youth rodeos and riding outside just playing around. WE got him from Amish people in West Tennessee where a little boy rode him to school during the week. He taught him to do several tricks and threw a rope off him. Donk is gentle for any lever rider. My daughter is very timed and gets along with this pony great. This is a one of a kind pony, 100% in every way.
