Today we had a delivery of two donkeys. The donkeys will have the very important job of guarding our goat friends from predators. The goats themselves are pretty young and still nursing with their mamas, but they should be arriving in March/April.
Unfortunately, the delivery driver got stuck in the mud because of all the ice and snow. So it was Brian and his trusty orange tractor to the rescue pulling him out and getting him back on the road again.
The donkeys settled into the pastures pretty quickly, nibbling on the forage and exploring the area. We found a local hay vendor near the property where we purchased some hay and bought some feeders and a water trough. It was a busy day!
Now we just need to come up with names for these little ladies! Any suggestions?
