I love donkeys.

To anyone reading this, if you have any money at all to spare, give it to the Donkey Sanctuary. Donkeys have particularly urgent foot-care needs, because they originate from hardened climates where their feet are naturally worn by their environment, but can over-grow on Irish soil.. The Irish Donkey Sanctuary go all around the country, tending to donkeys' feet.

To the OP, if you have half an acre of grass and the time and temperament for a donkey, you will be richly rewarded.

They are fantastic creatures. Very intelligent. Biblically modest, none of the haughty arrogance of horses. It should come as no surprise that Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem on the back of the same animal that carried his pregnant mother into Bethlehem. Everybody's life is enriched by having a donkey in it. Nobody in human history has regretted befriending a donkey.

The only good donkey is the one that wins the Donkey Derby. The rest are all losers.

The donkey market is way overheated at the moment. Would you not consider renting a donkey for the time being and see what the future brings?

No there was one in Ballincollig. Had a thatched roof, red wooden windows and doors. Twas definitely a pub. The Auld Fox it was called. You could tell if your friends were inside because you recognised the donkeys. Fierce handy altogether

The best pubs will serve your donkey a few pints.

You'll finally have something good to do with all that lettuce you grew in your windowbox over lockdown.
