Are you trying to make me look like an ass?
Meet Warrior and Cheyenne - a much more cuddly pair than their names would suggest. They were two of about six donkeys providing rides for children at this year's Bingley Show. It's an English seaside tradition to have donkey rides along the beach. I can still remember the feel of their warm, rough hair against my shorts-clad legs as a child, and the sound of the bells on their harness. Sadly, I'm too old for rides now... but I was pleased to see the tradition continued at the Show and there were lots of happy kiddies laying down memories for the future.
[Yes, I know this photo would have been better with a bit of depth of field blur on the cluttered background. My camera won't do that.... but my new one might! ;-) ]
