Scene but not herd

After a week of rain, the wettest time I can remember since coming to live here, the donkeys were caked in mud. Today I decided to give them a thorough grooming, helped by Alys who is staying at the moment. It was the first time that all had been in head collars and lead ropes at the same time, and so they were easy to photograph as a group while tied. Not quite a herd, but getting there. A nice scene. Scene but not herd.


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.

    Great pics. I can’t believe how quickly they’re growing, or maybe I can considering how quickly my two granddaughters are growing too!
