World Donkey Day

Today, May 8, is World Donkey Day.

In honour of this, I have gathered some of my donkey photos.

First of all, my friend Loukoum on a donkey-walking holiday in France:

This affectionate, intelligent and loyal animal needs our protection.  There are many organisations around the world that do just that. UK organisations include The Donkey Sanctuary and Redwings Horse Sanctuary.

There are also plenty of blogs about donkeys, their welfare and training.  A couple that I particularly enjoy are Donkeys Deserve Dignity and A Donkey Diary.
