..200+ miles to look at Donkeys..
« on: August 09, 2019, 03:55:59 PM »
.
just got back from south of dallas - went to a Donkey Rescue couple's property to look at Donkeys (we might be interested in adopting)

I like the Mini Donkeys, Wife likes the next size "up" (and actually I wouldn't mind just getting another couple of Horses - but, if you're married, you know about "I wouldn't mind(s).....)

Wish you luck with that Tango.

We are going to get some as well when we find the right ones, at a reasonable price. They make for great coyote deterrents.

Even around herem sometimes they can be bought fairly cheap or even free on occasion. Keeping my eyes on Craigslist at least  a few times a week looking for  couple of them.
