Ass Not A Donkey

Thanks to blog reader Alex who has provided this snap of the now famous KT4 mule (yes it's a mule, not a donkey, apparently) outside the Worcester Park Tavern.

I have no idea, of course, what a mule drinks. No doubt my quick-witted blog readers will be able to suggest?

You see my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughing at him.

A Moscow mule perhaps - Vodka, ginger beer & lime. After that who cares who's laughing.

When my husband described the "donkey" to me, I kept insisting it was a mule, as donkeys don't get that big. I've just shown him the photo and told him I was right! Smug mode engaged!

Confirms my suspicions,Worcester park is a one mule town, with a couple of charity shops.

Saw this dude while driving to work a few weeks ago. "That horse has mighty big ears" I thought, half asleep - now it all makes sense :)

It is a donkey.....looks to be American Mammoth Jackstock breed....for more information visit our website www.elitemulesandjackstock.com A mule has a horse mare Mama and a donksy jack Papa.....mules are sterile....yes, donkeys do get this big - and bigger...depends on the breed. The AMJ is threatened with approximately 2,500 animals left in the world.....

I used to live in Worcester Park (1968 - 1983) and I'm sure I can remember there being a donkey in a field on the site of what is now Tamesis Gardens (off The Manor Drive). Used to be a dear old black horse there too, called Ringo. I still visit family in Worcester Park regularly, and can't believe how much it has changed - I think it has lost it's character and is now a non-descript, multi cultural urban sprawl.
