Your tail light lenses don't have back-up lights so you'll have to check the wiring diagram to see if a conductor is part of the loom. If not, it might be wise to add one when the new plug is installed.

I doubt that there is a yellow wire in the loom, especially with only a 6 pin plug.
My Fiber Stream did not have one either. Installing new tail lights with built-in back-up lights and threading the yellow wire into the loom was a relatively easy job. Or, separate back-up light fixtures could also be done...

It seems very few have actually answered the question in the title of this thread. "Herd" of Burros may not be correct, so let me suggest some alternatives:

"Bunch" of Burros (grapes).
"Bundle" of Burros," and my personal favorite:
"Bevy" of Burros.

By the way, I have named it The McMansion.

Maybe a "span" of Burros?
I Agree with Gina, where do you find this rather "off-the-wall" info?

We have a book called “The Exaltation of Larks” which list these and other fun info.

Some of my favorites are...
<blockquote>“A murder of crows”
“A frolic of otter”
“An Exaltation of Larks”
“A Crash of Rhinoceroses”</blockquote>

Okay, but what do we call it so it's meaningful and folks can find it??? Don't think it should be filed under "Refrigerators" either

How about "A Wisdom of Wombats"...

Now THAT's descriptive!

BTW, Gina... I'd suggest that unless you are anticipating a new litter of Burros, that you park them somewhere other than side-by-side when you get the new one home.

Good list, Mike. I saved it for the other half, who often must finish the crossword before she can speak in the morning!
