    I just finally finished the place with wire. 5 strand high tensil W/3 hot. In NC I get more time to play during these months than you. Good time to run wire vs July. Its sometimes hard to do any reloading if I can be outside. Take care.

    Reminds me of something that happened to me as a kid.

    I had just finished working on the fences, and was hanging out in the kitchen looking out of the window. Down below was a pasture we had fenced in with electric to allow the horses a place to graze apart from the barbed wire fence areas.

    Something caught my attention, a fluttering brown streak, accelerating quickly from the wooded are to the pasture. As it past the fence line, it dropped to the ground, and was fluttering around on the ground.

    I went down to find a dead ruffed grouse, that had broken it's neck on the electric fence. So I picked it up, and took it to the house.

    Maggie, the Donkey Buckeye.45 does not want; Zane, the perpetually hungry gelding; and Boaz, my gelding.

    The horses are Tennessee Walkers - great gaited riders




    Thank you, thank you, No.

    Just contemplative. Cloudy day, pre-tax season boredom. Cleaning house before my dear wife gets home from a visit up to Denver.
    Tell Maggie that is isn't my fault, I just have to check and see if my landlord would love it if I had a donkey in my upper floor apartment.

    Just pullin' your chain, buckeye.45. She's a sweetie and keeps our boys company.

    To say it another way, our two horses have a pet donkey.

    Interesting though - donkey's are very protective - she will not let coyotes close, don't know about a lion. Lion probably wouldn't try, because they'd risk being hurt real bad by her. She has body slams down to an art (spoken from first hand experience).

    So who are the other critters lurking in the background behind Maggie?

    That was so uplifting Glockman, thank you.

    Those were her fellow donkey "friends" at the donkey adoption agency. Maggie though, really didn't have any donkey friends. She was never socialized with other donkeys, so she does not like other donkeys at all. She does like horses though, and vice versa. She and our two geldings are real buddies. She'll just never fit in except around horses.

    It is rather hysterical when she is in estrus. She feels quite "easy" and tries to "attract" the "boys" by backing into them with her hips spread.......anyway.......you get the idea.......being geldings they just look at her like some kind of alien maniac and wander off. She gets soooooo frustrated. Poor girl. We have a gorgeous Arabian Stallion living .25 mile away though, and I really do not want him getting wind of my little girl....

    Ya'll probably could have gone without knowing all that................

    Beautiful horses! I love Maggie though. There's just something so adorable about a Donkey. They're huggable ... or something.

    She was just never socialized with donkeys. She was socialized with horses and humans. Humans are fine for the most part, once she gets to know you. Donkeys have great memories though, so if anyone ever hurt her, she will remember.

    Beautiful horses! I love Maggie though
    Thanks

    Well, she probably would not like me, my wife tells me all the time that I am a donkey's backside.
