Howdy! My name is Jack. Sometimes I find it difficult to trust people but when I do we definitely become friends. I really trust my herd-mates and am very protective of them. I don't always move very fast but I am always on the look out for danger, especially from coyotes or stray dogs. I am best known for my donkey brae, especially when it's dinner time!
