Larry Bass (left) and Aubrey Lemmons (right) co-owners of Coyote Run Arena in Mason, Tn stand among donkeys they will use in their September 23 donkey team penning. They have had three pennings this summer using the donkeys rather than the traditional cattle. Interest in the pennings has increased after each event encouraging the men to schedule a six event donkey penning winter series starting Oct. 21. Lemmons says he has learned “Donkeys are smarter than horses, they have a larger brain.” More information on the pennings can be obtained by calling Lemmons at 901-355-3429 or Bass at 901-605-8337.
I think it would be much cooler if they were riding the donkeys.
