After much talk about the pros and cons, we decided we needed another equine around our farm. Since we have 3 horses one will always be left behind. Our younger horses really go nuts when left behind. We heard that a jenny was needing a new home. Her price was the trade of our two adult turkeys. They needed a new home and we needed them out of our coop. The donkey is hard to catch and needs more handling, but she is healthy and our filly needs her. This was the first time all week my filly was calm for a change. Our other two horses are at the trainers. The jenny's name is Shelby. Since she is very fast the name works.
