We're thinking about getting a donkey, both to keep our filly company and to guard the property against predators. What we're wanting the donkeys to protect are our poultry and waterfowl. Both are kept penned up at night, but it'd be nice if we knew something else was out there for any stragglers. Will donkeys protect geese or a flock as part of their own herd? We have a problem with opossums, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, the occasional stray dog and potentially a bobcat. Is there anything on that list donkeys _won't_ chase off? Any other input is appreciated. This is a big expense and an animal we'd have around the house for at least a decade, so we want to make sure we know what we're getting into before giving it serious thought.
