Well Mikey may already have met Charlie... I know that Wade has! Yes that is a halter and catch rope on him. Poor Charlie was a roping donkey :( until a nice lady got him last summer in Idaho. She brought him "home" to Wickenburg and although he has come a long way in the time she has had him, he has not come far enough for her to risk her own health trying to load him and take him back up for the summer with her... she is almost 70 and Charlie does NOT lead! In fact Charlie probably doesn't even CATCH unless you have at least two people... the weird thing is, Charlie DOES load easily into the trailer - IF you can get him close to it!
So Charlie came to live at Painted Promise Ranch this morning, and we hope to teach him that not everybody ropes! I'd love to be able to take that catch rope off of him and find him a forever home...
