We had to pick up a donkey this evening. We took my mother-in-laws rig, a 1996 Ford F-250 4X4 (Just turned 12,000 tonight) pulling a Featherlite gooseneck horse trailer. She is 64 years old and can go foward, but not backwards. So, we rode with her to the farm where the donkey was. On arrival, I take over the wheel and do the backing. If I am lucky, she let's me drive it back home. She did tonight. Now, mind you, her 4 daughters range in age from 29 to 46, but NONE of them is capable (in her eyes) of handling the rig. My wife is capable of handling that rig and our 3 trailers with no problem. At her previous job she hauled horses with a Dodge Dually and 4 horse gooseneck.

In case you are wondering what we are doing with a donkey, we "borrowed" it to keep our horse company. Our boarders horse had to be put down, and that leaves us with just one horse. Horses are "herd" animals and can get sick if left alone, if they are used to other horses being around. We have more boarders coming in around the 1st of May. Then the donkey will go back home.
