The Lamb Nanny

Now we all have heard, I know, about Nannies for children, right? Rumor has it that Kensington Palace is searching for a new full-time Nanny for Prince George. But…have you ever heard of or better yet seen a “Lamb Nanny?”  Too small to make the journey on their own to better pastures, a donkey is used, fitted with a custom made saddle bag, to transport this precious cargo.

Just had to share…

“In the early spring shepherds drive huge flocks of livestock, here sheep, mules, donkeys, and goats from the Pre-Alpine hills to the plains of Lombardy, for grazing. The newborn lambs are carried in a custom made side saddle by the donkeys, and returned to their mothers at rest time. I was told that the hump on the donkey’s back is a cauldron!” Caption by Elspeth Kinneir.
