House Donkey. You don't need a bigger bed. Just more pillows!

That's simultaneously the most heartbreaking and heartwarming thing I've seen in a long time. :O

Donkeys are very strong. Get him a little cart lined with pillows and a big flashing red light for his ass and you’ll save a fortune in taxi fares getting home from the pub - if they ever re-open!!

Also they love cheese and onion Tayto so less calories and cholestoral if you share!!

If you do buy one, make sure it's not a wonky donkey.

Does anyone know why farmers buy them these days? especially the ones who just leave them in a field and don't pass too much heed on them.

I know plenty farmers still believe in keeping a donkey for good luck, it's to do with jesus and the cross on it's back and all that shìte, also donkeys are fiercely territorial and if in a field with sheep lambing they are supposed to frighten off any predators, I've never seen any evidence of it tho so maybe nonsense

The donkey sanctuary - some very funny facebook videos - and a great cause. They’d set you up right and help you with their feet and teeth. Unlike a bad girlfriend/boyfriend. No help there & much more expensive to run.

Alpacas are the same. They're always on the alert, looking out for predators, so hate being enclosed in any way.

Judging by the state of some of those ads, it would appear that donkeys are also incredibly difficult to photograph properly
