I think the Donkey idea is a valid one. I would look into that. Also, Maybe a Great Pyrenese or two

She has 3 Great Pyrenese and 1 walks around with the animals but he's a lovable sort. He would smack me with his muzzle if I stopped rubbing him. My neighbor had one of those Bethlehem Burros and I wouldn't trust my dogs near one. My 100# former lab was intimidated by them and the burro showed aggression toward him. Her dogs have free rein of the farm and I wouldn't suggest the two together. I always thought those dogs would be tough and intimidating but all three are like gentle giants.

We are working on the problem for her and DNR has said we can take them out of season as long as they are causing problem as her stock is her livelihood. But only on her place and not the neighboring farms. We will probably try again tonight. I'm interested to get ride of these Coyotes myself. I had one run through the yard 20 yards from the house and I went after him bare handed and yelling. He just looked at me like I was a nuisance and kept on his way. Don't seem to show fear at all and didn't speed or slow his gate.

I know absolutely nothing about donkeys so Iím hesitant to get one. And no way to keep a donkey with goats exclusively as all stock share same areas

I had 5 Pyrs, now only 4 as of last winter. They are doing the best they can. The fox out number them greatly. They can only keep chasing them off as they canít catch them

I'd tag along and I'm sure we could bring a few shooters to take care of the issues
