La Fête de l'Ane - donkey festival

Yesterday we went to Glenic, which is just north of our department capital (Gueret) for the 9th annual Fête de l'Ane or donkey festival.

We both have a liking for donkeys, they are such friendly sedate animals (much nicer than horses, I think!).

I have to say the festival wasn't really our thing (they were judging them, and doing "trials", which we aren't into) but there were some lovely donkeys, and they were obviously well loved by their owners.

There were also some people displaying traditional trades (blacksmiths, clog makers, butter churning, etc), and various stalls including some in aid of donkey sanctuaries.

Here are some pics from the afternoon:
