Donkey & Mule Dispatch Index for March issue
Left: Cotswold Minnie Moppet bred some lovely foals but now has a role as a companion donkey (along with a daughter) with the editor and she has proved perfect for giving rides to small children.
Right: Cloudy & our Sth Island Reps. grand-niece Beth. Jan wrote “Although it doesn’t quite tell the picture as she had been talking for days about riding the donkeys but, when it actually came to doing, it was quite a different story! Just a sit was enough. We all enjoyed being out with the donkeys & the donks loved being surrounded by kids & giving rides. It was fun to be doing that sort of thing again.”
Left: Raylene Holden opens and closes a gate without dismounting Braywin Spectacular Blueboy, a mule owned by Robin and Coralie Winter, at the SI D&MS Show.
