    I have three mini donkeys. Busgy, Dottie, and Jenny-Girl. They were all rescued. Unknown to me they got out of their pasture, so my neighbour phoned to inform me. I immediately went out to get them. This was in the evening so it was dark. The "kids" were just on the other side of the highway, a place they never go!! We were walking single file with my dad behind me, his 4-way flashers on acouple of hundred feet from home. I saw a car coming so I stopped till it could pass us then the "kids" and I would cross the highway into our yard. The car came, it slowed down but not very much. Dottie through the cars lights got a glimpse of home and bolted. She was struck and killed. Thank goodness it was almost instant. I just can't get the sound and the look in her eyes out of my mind. I guess I will in time. It hurts soooo much. Thanks for listening. I loved her!!!!!

    [​IMG] How very sad! I'm so sorry that happened. Why can't people SLOW THE HECK DOWN when people are leading stock/walking dogs/kids down country roads? I JUST DON'T GET IT!
