Gus has healed up nicely. We decided to let him out in the pasture with the bulls, few cows and couple of calves. He ran the bulls. Not good. So we brought Pearl home to put with him. Our thinking was he would do better with another donkey with him. Turned them out again. He still ran the cattle. So Gus was put back in his stall. What to do with a donkey that chases cattle?
Just so happens my co-worker asked what we wanted to do with him. She recently bought goats and wanted to put a donkey with them for protection. I advised her we had issues with him running the cattle but he was fine with the calves. Plus I don't believe he is cut. I may be wrong but it sure looked like boy bits back there! Thus I think the issue with the bulls. (He was at the lease with cows and calves and didn't have any issues. No bulls there.) She said she would love to have him. She'd have the vet come out and check him, cut him if indeed he was still intact. Hopefully that would help with his issues.
Today she came to get him. He was such a good boy. She haltered him right up, led him straight to the trailer and after a little coaxing with treats, in the trailer he went.
Brenda gettin' him settled into her trailer.
In exchange for Gus, I got two barn kittens.
Aren't they too cute. Miss Kitty is NOT happy with me. She'll get over it.
