Lovely. I've always thought that if I owned a acreage, I would keep a couple of donkeys.
Same Donkeys from Blackpool, they all loog the same
Dont make a ass of yourself today
One of the most gentle creatures I know...if a bit stubborn at times. We had a donkey for 35 yrs, Daniel. When we moved house he went to live at the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth, Devon where he was loved by all & looked after so well till he died earlier this year.
"Fools,I also had my hour,
One far fierce hour and sweet,
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms beneath my feet" Chesterton.
Great Photo,John.I always think of Chsterton's poem when I see a donkey.
Lovely photo - now that's the way to see the world!!!
I have never heard those lines by Chesterton before Dave. Stirring words, thank you.
Our Daniel's ears were so silky soft & he loved you to stroke them gently...we miss him.
Lovely photo of lovely animals! H.
Aw, how sweet. I love donkeys. Lovely photo.
Hi,Helen,you'll find Chesterton's poem if you google some of the lines,a great bit of writing for today's equally great pic.
Haw thats a lovely photo
Once again thank you for your comments everyone. Donkeys are intelligent, gentle, sociable and friendly animals, isn't it a shame more humans are not more like them. These donkeys looked well cared for and happy, and certainly made them a good subject for a picture.
Beautiful John......as you said ...pity there arnt more humans with the same disposition.
