The Boys are Here!



Well, the newest additions to our little farm are here! The boys came yesterday and are all installed in their new (temporary) corral. They had an hour and a half trek from their old home to ours and they seem to have made the trip very well. Here they are still in the horse trailer, unsure of how happy they are to get out into the unknown.




We let them stay out in the yard for a while to acclimate to their new surroundings. It's probably colder here than where they were born so we have them in a temporary area until we can get them into the barn. The meat chickens are still in that area of the barn so the boys had to wait another week to get into their new digs. We are also going to change up the barnyard a bit to accommodate both donkeys and pygmy goats. They can't live together as the donkeys play rougher than goats do.




So far my nieces and our granddaughter have come to see them and seem to be pretty excited. We did not let them in with the donkeys yet but as time goes on we will introduce them and all should be great. No need to traumatize the poor boys anymore than they have already suffered. When they are comfortable with the new digs, we will let the kids touch them.  Until then, the boys get a reprieve!

  10. Heather - how adorable! Keep us posted on them! I would love to have some mini donks but my old horse Rocky (21 yrs) has been petrified of them for his entire life and I don't want him to drop dead of a heart attack :-)

  12. They are sooooo adorable! How old are they? They have the cutest faces. We love animals. My daughter's dream is to have her own farm and animals when she grows up. What a fun addition to your family. I have finally come back from the living dead (the swine flu in our home). That thing clung around for 2 weeks. Not fun. So now I am playing catch up with people's blogs and life in general. I hope all is well with you guys and you are staying well. Toodles.

  13. I think I remember reading somewhere that donkeys make good guard animals for flocks of sheep--did you get them for this for your goats?
