This field is about 8 acres and when I let them out there earlier this week, I was expecting that Ramsey would take full advantage of the wide open spaces. Foolish me, you'd think by now that I would stop expecting donkeys to do anything that I expect. Fearless Ramsey proved to be a bit intimidated by all the open, unfamiliar space and instead of galloping all over, he has been sticking close to mom.
After three or four days, he did start venturing out, but he still saves most of his gallops for my lawn. It seems cramped and cluttered to my mind, but to a baby donkey, it is apparently the perfect playpen. Who am I to argue? I have no doubt that given a bit more time, Ramsey will have the bigger fields conquered as well.
