I've told you before about the farm with camp site owned by friends of mine. They also have donkeys. Lots of them. Very cute donkeys in fact. They adult donkeys enjoy going for walks with the guests. And I do mean really enjoy it. When one of them gets to go out, the others get pretty angry if they don't get to go. During these walks they carry stuff for the guests (like pick nick baskets). Especially for this purpose, Kees has made special saddles for the donkeys.
Underneath those saddles he uses plain old blankets.....Well that just will not do. So we assembled a group of enthousiasts (meaning my sister, Petra and me) and started talking about making some nice saddle blankets for those beautiful creatures. The results of those talks are below.
|It is not as easy as it looks/\.....|
|First stitches. Wrong of course|
|The work shop.....or was it sweat shop? I forget.|
|The first one sort of ready.|
We will just need to re-cut the fabrics!
Have a wonderful day, if possible filled with donkeys!
Lots of love,
