Île de Ré Donkeys

This brilliant card which combines donkeys and a lighthouse came from private swap with Claudia :) She lives in the US but the donkeys are of Île de Ré, a French island off the western/atlantic coast, connected with a 2.9-km bridge to the town of La Rochelle.
The donkeys that live on Île de Ré are a rare race - their fur grows very long and then becomes dreadlock-like! If you look closely you can see on this photo that their fur is trimmed :) The cute pants were originally created to protect them from bugs as they used to work in the salt marshes of the island. I guess these days they are quite a tourist attraction, would love to see them one day! Thank you Claudia :)))
