FURRY FRIDAY ON SATURDAY!
Yes! The sharp-eyed amongst you will notice these pixx are conflated from several derby days of the donkey kind...
DONKEYS ARE SOME OF MY FAVOURITE ANIMALS. AREN'T THEY FURRY AND CUTE!!
Chomping at the bit (hardly!)... the furry donkeys cannot wait to race!
All the Trotter Donkeys in a row...
And off they ping!
... trotting away...!
Oh no! A wicked witch has cast a spell on the children!
The race took so long, the children who got on the donkeys aged 6 and 7 passed 13 years before the race finished!...
Giddy up now!
The lucky winner!
1. A little more sedate than the Kentucky Derby (this does have moving pictures after a brief photomontage)... or the Grand National (as featured in National Velvet) for that matter... a GENUINE DONKEY DERBY!
2. Aww! Look at all the furry donkeys...
3. Here's a one-girl donkey derby in Sweden or somewhere... What beautiful countryside!
It was Christmas eve in a war zone - I just about managed to rise this morning but shining is still a long way off. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I had my usual stress dream last night....
