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.

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.

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

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.

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

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