Thank you gazrok. yes, give your horses a big hug!
Maddie my riding mare is coping very well now. She was very upset for a few days but has bonded with the new donkey now.
She is now the boss of the 'herd' - 1 horse (herself), 1 donkey, and 2 pygmy goats. it's a funny herd but it is working.
I don't know about you, but we are the wierdest herd I have ever seen.
The pygmy's are actually bullying the donkey which is comical.
Last evening I was bush hogging and the bull calf, which I keep by himself, escaped into the big field. I just kept hogging but kept watching. at
first, Maddie ignored him. but it didn't take long for him to start messing with the donkey and pygmys and boy did that piss her off. She ran him
all the way back to the barn, ears flat and teeth bared!
So it is good to see the adjustment is going well.

thank you Camyo. I'm so sorry for your loss also. How quickly we can bond with our pets!
I was fortunate enough to have wonderful neighbors that brought their trackhoe over and buried her here on the farm for me. It meant a lot to me.
Hopefully she will come back and visit you. I do believe...

and thank you chasing! We did have that rare bond where going down the trail I could think a direction and she would go that way. it was cool, like
we could read each others minds. and I knew when she was going to do something goofy too.
