We wanted a guardian animal for the goats, and chose a donkey. Maggie was just 2 months old when we brought her home in the back of my Expedition from Tennessee. So adorable, that we probably spoiled her more than we should have. Maggie's only "special need" is that she wants ALL the attention! She thinks she's a goat! She has no respect for personal space. At times she still thinks she can get into your lap! She does not know how to bray. And I have twice been alerted by the guineas about a coyote at the fence while Maggie was inside laying in front of the fan! With all that being said, we love her to pieces and she's a favorite here at the farm for visitors.
