In praise of the bourricot

I have just discovered this website:
The French word bourricot is new to me (I like it because it is similar to burro in Spanish.) The website contains a good collection of links to French donkey sites, mainly conected with walking with donkeys.
bourricot Petit âne.
baudet, bourriquet -familier: bourrique
monter un bourricot
être chargé comme un bourricot être très chargé


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.

    Hi Gareth
    Dalie says bonjour de Naverrenx, in a garden in the rain while I sit in a Cybercafe before eating a huge meal in the Gite.

    hi, Barbara! Navarrenx! I remember it well. The church is beautiful. I wish I was there too, with burra. Buen Camino!
