Moving the Donkeys to a Different Pasture

There's always lots to do here at my Bedford, New York farm. Among our latest projects - moving the donkeys and their run-in shed.

I have several large pastures - enclosed spaces where my Friesians, Fell pony, and donkeys are turned out to exercise and graze. Recently, I decided to move my donkeys to another paddock on the north side of my stable, where they can view farm activities from a different location. Doing this meant we also had to relocate the donkey run-in shed. Run-in sheds are three-sided buildings that allow horses and donkeys free-choice access during inclement weather. My crew took on this task and got the job done in just a couple of hours.
