Donkeys in their Loafing Shed
For this reason, we decided to extend the roof line of the barn over by the chicken house and create a loafing shed for the other boys. The shed is quite sizable and has no problem housing Zeus, Kharma, Herschel, and Jules. It took them about ten days to warm up to the idea of running in to the shed. Donkeys are very cautious – more cautious than curious – so it’s no wonder they braved the rain and cold for a while before they decided to explore the new shed.
Here they are sticking their heads out and finally coming over to inspect wether or not some food was in the offing. First Zeus and Kharma venture out followed by precocious and bossy Jules and then finally Hershel. We are so happy these guys have a place to stay now that Bon-Bon and her son are running the barn. The jennets Callie and Mocha are still down by the old hangar barn with the goats.
