Our guard donkeys…

…have asked for equal time with the farm dogs we featured awhile back.

Jenny, pictured here, and Jack are our miniature donkeys…a kind of early warning system protecting our herd from stray dogs and coyotes.

They stay with the herd year around no matter the weather.  They’re incredibly low maintenance…and they survive on the grass alone…no supplements and never seem to get sick.  They’re 20 years old now and still going strong!
