Graeme and Heather Smallridge are hand rearing Ridgeparke Dawn whose mother died shortly after her birth in January. Two hourly feeds of a special formula for the first two weeks and then an orphan foalmix containing lucerne, oats and molasses was introduced. Dawn has not looked back. Heather says she is her mummy now and she loves her to bits. For a few hours in the daytime Dawn goes out with the other donkeys so she knows that she is a donkey and not a human.

Cotswold Billy Bob, dead to the world after his big morning and the centre of attention.

I think donkeys with naturally long hair look really cute when left with a natural fluffy coat — not trimmed up look like a show pony (Editor).

Eleanor Rae, Belletrees Dixie Drum, A cutie if ever there was one. There is something about donkeys which defies the judges' opinion on placings and appeals to the ordinary person as this one does. A woman standing near to me remarked, “Well I don't care what the judge thought, this is my pick.” (Editor)
