Working Animals

I have this sense that working animals recognize one another, and are part of a mysterious and ancient community. Our donkeys are very much working animals, many people do not know they are guard animals, that’s why I got them. For a decade, they have protected our sheep, not a one has been lost to coyotes or other predators, no stray dog has ever made it past the gate, no fox has gotten one of our chickens. When I see Fate stand with them, I see they are part of a community, they know one another.
