I haven't a clue about the Indy 500 to be honest. I don't think I've even ever watched it. Fair play to him though...

Ann,

You seem to like to hear about my donkeys and so I have some donkey news for you. My mare appeared pregnant for a while so I had a blood test to confirm if she was (so I knew whether to take the jack away or keep him with her) but the blood test came back negative and that she wasn't pregnant. I kept the jack away anyhow because I still thought she was pregnant despite what the test said.

Yesterday she proved me right with another little mare foal. Cigars all around.

Hi Steve - your new Pearla is beautiful. Will you keep her? Are they worth enough to make a profit if you sell her? When I suspect an animal is pregnant, I have the vet do either an ultasound or a manual exam. The result is always certain but it costs $100 so I do not always have it done. Herb

Hi Steve - my vet has portable ultasound equipment that can be brought to my place. I do have a horse trailer and could save about half the cost by bringing the horse to the vet but that can be a lot of trouble too. In my state you have to carry the horse's health papers with you and be up to date on all the shots and tests.

Horse prices have dropped considerably also. I sold a horse last summer  for $250 that a few years ago would have easily sold for $1500. People are dropping horses off at shelters because of the high cost of feed. Herb

I had a friend who said you could judge a mans' intelligence by the number of horses he owned.
He claimed that at the time. he was 3-horse stupid.
I reckon the same applies to donkeys.
