Aitana goes to the beach

Donkeys are notoriously wary of water, so a trip to the beach for the first time presents an opportunity for water therapy for Aitana: the idea was to demonstrate that I could paddle in the water without danger and I hoped she might be tempted. No chance.

This was as close as we got to the sea. Oh well, maybe next time she’ll have a paddle…


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.

  1. Did you manage to get someone to donkey-sit while you took a break? The theory amongst the Stockport stalking fraternity is that you went to Walsingham and wrote about it on Jessica’s blog. This theory doesn’t make a great deal of sense.

    Perhaps thigh high waders or knee high wellies ? 🙂

    Hamish, how good to see a comment from you on my entirely woeful donkey blog. No idea what the headbangers on the Damian Thompson blog may be thinking! I haven’t even looked at Jessica’s blog (nor Damian’s) during the summer holiday! Eccles, on the other hand, is obligatory. I have very little appetite for the current nonsense, particularly from the people who waste whole days on the Daily Telegraph blogs demanding attention. We lost Damian’s contribution to traditional Catholic comment some time ago. Now it is a wasteland.
