IRELAND ~Donkey~

...Immediately when I found this gorgeous postcard in my mailbox I thought...
Is he laughing at me or with me???? Look at his long ears... I just love his expression...:D
He reminds me of Shreks little talking friend "donkey" my most favourite character in these movies... Thanks a lot Claudia for bringing a big smile on my face!!! (IE-39741)

Love the stamp too! Its from a set of 4 (issued on July21-2011)
about Ireland's marine life and shows the Cuckoo Wrasse,
the most spectacularly coloured fish found in Irish waters.

Connemara is a district in the west of Ireland.
The donkey is the oldest domesticated animal in the world originated from the African Desert. Donkeys are a widely recognised part of the Irish rural landscape but are not native to the country (arriving aruond 1600's).
