Russ,....I retired the ol' gal a couple of years ago and gave her to a young couple with 3 kids. She's a "pasture pet" now and enjoyin' lots of attention from those kids.  :bl th up
Just for the record,.... Molly is 32 years young now, and fully deserves any and all blessings bein' bestowed upon her.  :applaud

I've done a little lookin' for sumpthin' to replace her with,.....  'cause my horse refuses to do "mule work" and none of my donkeys seem to have much interest in the job either. :(

I did find a "REAL NICE mammoth donkey" broke to ride and pull a cart, but when I told my wife how much the askin' price was she nearly fainted. :laffing

So the search for another "Molly" continues,........  :hairy

Thank God for sensible women!  :bow

There's been many a time when, she who must be obey, has inserted a bit of common sense into our conversations, and that alone flat-out killed every ounce of impulsive buying I had in me. At least for the moment.
Many Women are down right good at such things!

Tell Beth I will get her a nice flower someday for saving my ol' bud from further embarrassment.  :bl th up
