    Donkeys are great--I have two--a mammoth and a mini. Fortunately our neighbors like the brays as much as we do! The first time our mammoth (Mocha) came trotting up to greet me braying, I about freaked. I had never actually heard, much less SEEN, a donkey braying, and I wasn't sure if I was being greeted or attacked!

    Enjoy your little ones!

    Likewise, can't wait to see the pics.

    I must get a donkey this year.

    I have had experience with donkeys in the past, and really would love to have one at least, possibly a few.

    I would love to have a few goats too. Hmmm getting greedy

    Would love to see the pics.
