Here they are! Down payment has been paid, the weaning will commence the last week of October! This cute little guy is Gator. The striping on his legs is where his moniker originates.
Here is a picture of me standing with one of their mom's and the two babies. Wanted you all to see how small they were. The boys should be 32" and 33-34" tall at full height. They are so very sweet and really love attention!
The boys will need to be cut when they are roughly one year old. So spring will be their unmanhood date. Poor fellas! But I don't plan to breed them so gelding them is a must.
The gal that has them now says they will be even sweeter when they have been handled a lot. I can't wait to play with them. They really are darling. Last night I got online and ordered halters and lead ropes along with a must have book for raising miniature donkeys. I am big on research so that will be how I spend the next couple weeks.
He is a closer look at Apollo, he is our other new baby! They really are so fun and I don't even have them home yet. We have already begun plans to expand the barnyard corral to accommodate both donkeys and pygmy goats. They need to be kept separated but near so the donkeys, who play rougher, won't hurt the goats.
I can't wait for the first week of November, that's when they come home to my house. Now we need a couple little tiny pigs and maybe some Dexter cows and the mini barnyard will be complete.
