We have introduced the donkeys to the goats and emus separately on a couple of occasions. The sessions were scary with the donkeys giving chase and near catastrophic results. For the last few weeks we have kept them in separate pastures to get to know each other with a fence in between. Jack and Diane hate being sequestered in a pasture by themselves because, well, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. So the donkeys have begun an concerted effort to destroy the gate between the two pastures to get to the other side, where the grass is always greener. I decided that today would be the day that they would become one big, happy, dysfunctional farm family. I let everyone out of their pens and the co-mingling began.
Here they are, two donkeys, three Tennessee fainting goats, and three emus.
J.D. was a good boy today, but the Craigslist ad is still active. I remind him of that from time to time.
The emus wandered in and out the legs of Jack, the 650 pound donkey. It was hair raising to me!
The goats were so excited to meet the donkeys up close and in person.
Jack and Diane discussed the idea then came to me in a rather intimidating manner.
Before I knew what happened, the CIRCUS was in town and my pasture was the Big Top!
Then Lousie fainted!
Then Thelma took her turn.
And that was the day the CIRCUS came to town! I am almost afraid to see what they come up with tomorrow. I am thinking goat, riding a donkey with a chicken on it’s back. Stay Tuned!
