Lamb Hill Donkey Show

Dearest mule had been desperate to do something so when there was a mention of a specific mule class at Lamb Hill Donkey Show we felt we should go along and support it.  She was quickly pulled in, feet trimmed, ears de-waxed, hogged, and bathed (cue sad soggy limp eared mule).  She launched herself on the trailer this morning and with her ears waving happily in the rear mirror of we went to Yorkshire.

Five mules came forward for the mule class, Treacle was bemused to find herself looking up at the imported mule, Phlossi.  She is generally known as "the mule with the unfortunate name" as she goes by the moniker "Coffee Hollow Kiss My Fanny" a name that probably works better in the States!  All mules were much admired and Treacle won the class.

Mark then donned his bowler and as the heavens opened he threw himself into the handy donkey course, we left before the results so we are yet to find out if they were quick enough to get in the placings, we are told there is a donkey who is legendary and very difficult to beat...

She's beautiful. Here in TN there is a week long celebration of the mule... Columbia Mule Days. I was able to visit this year. You can see some Tennessee mules on my blog. There were hundreds there!

I feel Treacles name is way too understated compared to kiss my fanny!
