So we are having a new barn built on the dog's side of the yard and I had this bright idea to let my LGD Brody stay on the donkey side because he's not a herder like the other two and figured he hasn't been over there in ages - wouldn't he just love to visit with the neighbor dogs on that side while the rest of the crew were locked up on the deck? Now these donkeys come over to the dog's side all the time - and in fact the first 6 months we had them we had no fence and everyone lived in relative harmony, save a couple of incidents. But those donkeys took one look a their pal Brody on their side of the fence and chased him down! I've never seen those two lazy asses (Literally - lazy asses!) run so fast!Holy cow that dogs was running his butt off to get away! Finally he screached up to the gate, panting and out of breath and pleaded to be let out. It was pretty funny to watch the donkeys put him in his place...the dogs give them such grief when they come over to their side to mow the lawn - it was so entirely appropriate! I have no doubt that any predator trying to get at my birds (Who live on the donkey side) will be smashed flat! Killer Donkeys Rule!
