Robert Wallace competing at Mullahead's Ploughing Society's 100th event with donkeys Denis (brown) and Popcorn (grey). He was the only DBS member and Northern Ireland donkey owner taking part in the Guinness world record of 100 equines pulling in draught at one time. He came second in his class of Mules/Donkey ploughing section, it was won by a set of mules from Yorkshire. Robert competes regularly at ploughing matches and has the only DBS team in Ireland ploughing at this time.
Finally a huge welcome to any new members since my last newsletter. We look forward to seeing you at any events you can hopefully make it to (donkeys optional). As always it’s the members that make the society!
Did you know...Donkeys milk was once valued as a medicine and was given to premature babies, sick children and to people suffering from tuberculosis. The milk of a donkey contains much more sugar and protein than cow’s milk and also has less fat.
That’s all for now folks. If you need any information just give me a shout on: firstname.lastname@example.org
