Lea Hullett is Driving Thistle. In front is Andrea driving one of her Teamsters and leading another.

Andrea heading for the hay racks

On the way up the web manager spent a night at Palmerston North and next morning enjoyed a drive of Pemberton Thistle. Thistle is trained to the voice. I said “Thistle left” and Thistle went left, I said “Thistle right” and Thistle went right and so on. He felt safe for a novice like me. Andrea Thomson drove Jasmine Mr Darcy and led Pemberton Angelotti with Thistle and me behind as we drove through their wonderful green pastures. Before we set off for Napier Andrea made sure all the donkeys had plenty of hay and barley straw.

On the way to Napier we visited Nancy Neal's where quite a few donkeys she has rescued over the years live under her watchful eye.
