I'm rather excited to be (hopefully) meeting a donkey (a 4 month old jack) this evening. We would love to have a donkey on the farm! They make great guard animals and would keep the goats safer, and I just learned that if you have a problem horse that bites and kicks, tie it to a donkey for awhile. The donkey won't take anything from the horse and will make the horse go the donkey's way! Oh, how wonderful! I hope we're able to get the donkey!
