Respect your animals. Treat them with respect, not harshly. Care for them as they need to be cared for. And give them the time and affection they deserve. Don't over pack a donkey or ride an animal you are too big for. Don't expect the animal to work in areas where it is untrained....and you know? Donkeys can not read your mind like you think they can. Be clear when training. Feed your donkey correctly for it's health.....and enjoy the animal that God gave you.
