Hee Haw

These Jerusalem donkeys are kept in the herd with the cows. They are the security patrol.
They will run off dogs or coyotes that come into the pasture. They also came quickly to greet us. I was scared, but it turns out they just wanted to be petted. I couldn't think to take a picture till I was OUTSIDE the fence. Too bad they were in the shade. But, aren't they cute!? (from a distance)

Very cute! I didn't know these made good watch-donkeys!

Hmm, that's where zoom lenses come in handy. But these two look so placid (and cute)
