Donkey demand

SEVERAL farmers were among the buyers of breeding stock at the first sale of imported miniature donkeys to be held in the UK last weekend.

The event at Carlisle attracted a massive crowd and saw prices twice reach 2600gns.

The 22 donkeys were imported by Dr Ken Jones, Alberta, and averaged almost £2000 apiece. (Harrison and Hetherington)
