Jackie Bryant sent in this photo of Jo Hardy driving Zulu wearing an Empathy Collar. It is a broad, shaped type of breastplate that seems to me to accommodate the low-set neck of the donkey very well, and leave the shoulders plenty of room. Jo finds the donkey moves very freely and seems happy wearing it.
They are made by Zilco. For more information contact Jackie Bryant or Wendy Macpherson E-mail
