Colyford Goose Fayre invited Joe and Daffy back this year to take part in the medieval procession and a stall in the fayre. They proudly assumed their positions at the start of the procession last Saturday wearing the robes that were made for them last year.
Sue Letheren and Jen Littley prepared them until they were sparkly white and commented that they lead even better this year seeming to know what was expected of them. They showed how confident they could be as noisy crowds flocked around them. Daffy only had a minor wobble at a particularly scary drain cover!
The pen was heaven to them; full of long grass and lots of people wanting to say hello to them. They made us truly proud as their behaviour was impeccable. Pity about their handlers who take off their lovely robes as early as they can! I don’t know why, they carry those headbands off with panache!
Thank you to Paccombe Farm for having such devoted grooms and such handsome and well behaved donkeys.
