Neighbor walks her dog down the road everyday and those donkeys will stop whatever they are doing and stand at the fence and watch that dog until its out of sight.

Here, we feed the donkeys to the wolves so they don't have to go after the cows and the calves. Tho I'm not worried about the coyotes go after the cattle and our angus cows are fiercely protective of their calves.

a female donkey or a female mule will try to take away a calf, as for a jack, I would not put a jack with my cows with out cutting him. llamas I have some,5, they are easy going and will chase a coyote, sometimes. They are great weed eaters and cause very little problems, just have to watch the males because they can get very mean but mine is not.

Knock on wood I ain't seen a wolf take down a donkey yet. Hopefully I never do.
