Donkeys, whether full size or miniature in size, can make pretty good guards over livestock and property. Why? Well, the main reason is that donkeys are very protective of their territory and if there is livestock like sheep or goats living in their territory then the donkey is going to protect them as well. Nothing gets past a donkey. Whether it’s a wild coyote or your neighbor’s dog, a donkey will immediately charge, attack and kick the intruder until it’s either dead or it runs off. If you have small goats or sheep and you’re worried about predators then talk to your vet and local donkey owners about bringing a donkey into the mix. Donkeys do not spook easily. They fight when there’s danger and they bray loudly to let everyone know what’s going on. Talk to your veterinarian Wichita, KS to learn more on how you can add a guardian donkey to your herd.
