    Yeah, I have a Boer Doeling that does that as well. And when I feed she just walks around standing beside me wherever I go... I guess she thinks she is supervising me to make sure I do it correctly :roll: It is terrible when the goats themselves are the bosses :shock:

    a question about miniature donkeys

    So tell me about Miniature donkeys....I want one so bad...but I don't think I have the room. How much room do they need and what kind of shelter...not that I can talk my fam into one...and would they get along with my 4 nigi goats? Any info you can give would be lovely!!

    the donkey would need to have already been pastured with goats because if not they may hurt them. I would say you could get by with an acre per mini. A lean to that will protect them from wind and rain and other weather would be fine.

    Alyssa pretty well has it. If you do find a Mini Donkey that has been with goats they are actually a really good guardian. They HATE dogs! Or atleast most of them do. Some people use them as an alternative to pyr's and llamas. Might be a perk to help convince your family :wink:

    Beautiful animals! I have always liked Haflingers, she's very pretty! My former neighbors (before I moved 4 years ago) have a Heeler that looks just like Dixie, but theirs is a male. He always came out to greet us when we went for walks by their house....very sweet dog.
