Coach

Age: 15 years

Gender: Gelding

Burro Buddy:   BamBam

Coach is a medium grey standard gelding donkey standing 49 inches.

Coach loves both jennets and john donkeys equally.

Longhopes has provided Coach full dental, medical, and farrier services in addition to many hours of training.

Burro Buddy:   Aston

Newton is a handsome spotted oversized miniature donkey (or small standard) at 37.5 inches tall.  He is more white than spotted.   He is in very good shape.

Newton is up to date on all medical, dental and farrier needs.

He halters, leads and stands well for the farrier.  He is calm, quiet and well mannered.
