Francis - Not a Horse

Francis is a wild-caught burro, born in or about 2003.  He was bought around the time of Stormy's birth, as a pet and a stable guard (donkeys don't take any guff from raccoons, dogs, or anybody).  Mary taught him to be ridden, and he'll on occasion acquiesce to let her ride him provided carrots are part of the deal.  She was planning to train him to pull a trap (a light 2-person cart) but he has grown too "grandiose" for the harness (see album).  Check out his blog!
