Carriage HIll Farm now has a donkey. No name for the little addition just yet, but if they don't name it soon, I'll name it for them. Why did they get a donkey and why is it in the same pasture as the sheep?
The farm has been having a problem with coyotes killing the young sheep. Turns out that a donkey is more than capable of protecting the sheep from the coyotes. Indeed, donkeys have been known to kill the predator. I don't care how big your teeth are, you don't mess with a donkey. No Sir. Just leave the donkey and his friends, the sheep, alone.
