My family got this donkey to be a watch animal and keep coyotes away from our chickens. While we've still lost a few chickens to coyotes over the years, I think that having Pedro around has kept predators to a minimum. Some others pros of having him around is that he is a fun, kind creature. Donkeys are trainable, self-sufficient, and affectionate. Over all, they don't require a ton of care. They're grazers, so if they have a grassy place to hang out, they'll be happy. The only negative is that they can be pretty noisy (but that can also be a good thing if there is someone in the yard who shouldn't be there). Overall, I would highly recommend this sweet and loving fuzz ball!
