Wide angle donks

The following photos were taken today on the donkey field by Mark Edwards with a Go Pro Hero3+ black edition camera, a remarkably versatile camera not much bigger than a matchbox.  It would fit neatly onto Aitana’s Easter bonnet, but we didn’t try because Morris and Matilde were very keen to eat Aitana’sDCIM101GOPRO Easter bonnet…




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.

    Thanks, Catherine. Here’s one more of (L to R) Rubí, Matilde and Aitana.

    Love the pics! That gorgeous donkey nose just needs a big kiss! Amazing camera. Bet that costs a few bob. Any further news on your moronic neighbour and his poor donk? I vote to put him in the bedstead cage with a bucket of scum and take his lovely donk into his house. Let’s see how well that would work…make sure the big yellow ball in the sky is cranked up too.

    The police visit seems to have done the trick for the moment and the roof is repaired. I asked a friend to take a look and he reports that the donkey now has fresh water. Will continue to monitor the situation every couple of days. That is a donkey at risk.

    I assume that Rubi was too busy wondering if it was Tuesday to take notice of Aitana’s Bonnet ?

  6. Frere Rabit says:

    Yes, Jack, you have the entire donkey psychology of Rubi encapsulated in that comment.

  7. Jack Hughes says:

    Just out of interest, how did you realise that Rubi spent most of her time wondering or not if it was Tuesday?

  8. Frere Rabit says:

    When you spend time with donkeys it becomes clear that they are all trying to solve problems. For example: Is it feed time? Why haven’t we got our food? What sort of food do you call this? And more complex problems like: Are there crocodiles in this puddle in the road? Why has the tarmac changed from black to red, and is that safe to walk on? etc. It took a while for me to tune in to Rubí’s anxieties about establishing if it is Tuesday, but now I have cracked it, life is so much simpler. For example, this evening is my last day of the holiday and I have to go back to work tomorrow, on Tuesday. Rubí is looking forward to Tuesday and I am not. But I can at least be pleased for her.
