Hedgerows and windbreaks: The paddocks edges.

Donks provide guard services for sheep.

"I had a single donkey to guard sheep & goats at one time. I still had a lot of canine attacks (neighbor dogs, feral dogs, coyote) that the donkey didn't prevent. Maybe the problem was that I only had one donkey. One day, I saw that donkey…"

"Have you ever had your small ruminants fenced with something less predator proof than electric netting with your donkeys around? I am already committed to training dogs, but an herbivorous guard animal sounds great. I have a neighbor who has had…"
