Emma and Ramsey have been living on part of my lawn which is normally Tanner's territory. I have them there because the grazing is better for Emma and it is easier for me to keep an eye on them. Not all of the grass in the fields has been mowed and I'd never be able to find Ramsey out in the tall weeds. He would have a hard time navigating through it as well. He is only a couple of inches taller than Tanner and weighs half as much. I don't want to misplace him:)
Tanner is none too happy that the donkeys have invaded his space, but he is being very good about it. He has been extremely careful not to bother Emma or be any kind of threat, which I am grateful for. Before the birth, I had been concerned about how I would keep him safely away from her. There is a good reason why donkeys are used as guard animals after all and new mothers are always dangerous to be around. However, Tanner knew just what to do. I know how intelligent Tanner is, yet I still underestimate him sometimes. I never cease to be amazed watching his mind at work.
You can be sure that Tanner makes himself very scarce when this little devil gets going...
PS - I know my camera needs cleaning, but I haven't figured out how to do it yet. It is the internal works of the camera that are dirty. I am working on it, for now just bear with me please.
