All four donkeys walking

As the foals get bigger, it becomes increasingly challenging to take the whole group out for a walk. The donkeys need regular walks to get exercise and also – crucially – for a natural hoof trim through regular walks on tarmac roads. Today I had assistance from friends Cait, Carl and Pauline and we took all four out on a circular walk in the countryside near home. The two foals are very frisky and require a lot of management because they do not like being on the lead rope and if they are not on a short leash they will try to kick their handler! Norty donkeys!


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.

    Well spotted! I’ll try to find out more. Presumably it’s north of the border in French Catalunya.
