Get a wee donkey. Careful you don't end up with an ass. Much harder to get an ass in the passenger seat of a Ford cortina.

Difficult if living in apartment. Especially above ground floor as very stubborn when it comes to lifts or stairs. Also, they may exceed the weight rating of balcony.
Once bitten, twice shy.

It's hard to get into pubs with a donkey and even if you do, they probably won't serve the donkey.

Of you give the Donkey a name like Ben, people will say "here comes Ben and the donkey'.

Either way it’s a big decision, you should definitely mule it over for a while

Any good pub will have a pole outside for tying up your donkey

People refer to 3 legged donkeys as a “wonky”, but actually 3 legs is the most efficient and stable arrangement of legs, as per tripods and 3 legged stools. So be sure to get a 3 legged one if you have uneven ground and you don’t want it to wobble.

If you can source one without a tail, you can rent it out for kids parties.

It’ll pay for itself in no time.
