Good photo Ron. 3 pounds a ride, how much goes to the donkey?

Isn't he just gorgeous..but he looks so lonely and fed up.....I hope I'm wrong.

What does he get for his lunch at haigh hall? 30 minutes ?

I don't suppose he is, but that donkey looks sadder than a 'Latics supporter.

It looks like he is living in a donkey paradise -no wonder its £3 a go.....!

We used to keep pet donkeys & they do look like this at times. They are not really sad, they are half asleep, dreaming & musing on things that donkeys dream & muse about....though they are quite happy if you think they are miserable because they love a cuddle !

A beautiful setting, however, it makes me very sad to see that poor little donkey; he looks worn out - he/she should be grazing in some lush pasture, not carrying children from A to B every day. We supposedly live in a more enlightened time and I think it's so wrong to use animals in this way.

Hope there are only children riding on him. Hope he is happier than he looks but he is beautiful

He does look sad,or mournful,sort of how I imagine Eeyore would look!
...Lovely picture,nevertheless!

Please dont worry about this well looked after little donkey....many are not so well blessed. Take a look at the Donkey Sanctuarys website in Sidmouth in Devon to see how these gentle creatures are abused here and worldwide.

Difference is blue boy, lionheart we'll come back.

Comment by: Blue boy on 1st May 2017 at 07:54

So will we !

Comment by: DTease on 1st May 2017 at 18:01

If I live long enough to see it Blue boy, I'll be the first to cheer.
