In an effort to distribute the donkey grazing to all parts of the farm we spent this weekend building a new shelter for them in the South pasture. Its a pretty simple design, just a 8’x12′, roofed, shelter to let them get out of our regular afternoon Summer thunderstorms and a place to keep water and mineral licks under cover. It will hopefully keep a patch of dirt dry for dust baths too.
We will eventually put 3-sides on it for Winter shelter, but don’t know whether to do it for the hot, NC Summer yet. Would be nice to make the sides somehow easily removable.
