I used to--I grew up on a small farm---we had horses, ponies, chickens, goats, one donkey, etc. He was a good donkey--loved carrots and supervising the other creatures- much easier than dealing with horses.
A picture of my Rosie and our aka hubbys horse Tobacco. My first donkey came out of a Sears Roebuck catalog in the 1950s named Katy. Went down to the train station in Atlanta Georgia and picked them up.I love donkeys.
Rosie below I had since 1994 and gave away in 2002. She would get upset and put her head on my chest and just Hey and Haw.,
