Kitt Green, home of the Blackpool Donkey

That's a long commute to work every day for the donkeys, Kitt Green to Blackpool...!
Then they've got to walk up and down the beach all day.
Animal cruelty I reckon, someone inform the RSPCA.

Joke:-

What's a Blackpool donkey get for its lunch?


About half an hour just like everyone else...!

Boom boom

Donkeys have always been my favorite animal, and if I owned an acreage, I would keep at least two of them.

A very worthwhile cause,give them all the support you can.

"What's a donkey" ?.....................A horse designed by a committee.


Comment by Maureen on 14th April 2017 at 16:21
A couple of years ago,I was feeding carrots to a donkey and as I turned away chatting he got hold of my little finger,he thought it was a carrot and was trying his best to bite through it,his owner managed to praise him off ..my finger was a mess,but it was my own fault..the finger is now bent ..and I still love donkeys..they're beautiful creatures.Wish I could win the lottery and own a donkey sanctuary.

Nice one Maureen,

I hope your dreams come true...

I thought they all got jobs on Wigan Council when they retired.

Phil, they are just here for the winter. They are due to go back to Blackpool shortly.


Comment by Maureen on 14th April 2017 at 19:01
Thank you very much Fred.

Thank you very much Fred.

No peebee, that is a camel, a horse designed by a committee. I prefer donkeys to horses, they have more brains.
