Among my acquaintances there is a donkey fan who, on more than one occasion, has pointed to the need for more donkey pictures on this blog. Well, here goes. At the top is one from my own collection and it's a card postmarked 1925.

The other items are from Ann Hayes of Ruthin, the third one down being a family snapshot taken around 1956. The colour card at the bottom is postmarked 1954; Ann fought me for it on eBay – a fact that I will never let her forget.

Please be aware there is a charity organisation called The Donkey Sanctuary working for the welfare of donkeys and mules in UK and Ireland. If you wish to see their web site, please click here:
