Donkey and Mule Nannies. Each year in the pre-Alpine hills of the Italian Alps of Lombardy, grazing Animals are moved from high pastures down to the plains. Newborn Lambs are unable to make this journey on their own. Instead they are packed out riding in the pouches of a specially made saddle on the back of a Donkey/Mule Nanny. The babies are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.
The ride out ~ "The most unique thing I ever had to pack out of the back country was Dennis and Karen Knippel's pup that had followed us in and was so tired and his feet were so sore he couldn't walk back out. So I loaded him on my calmest mule, Robert, balanced the load with rocks and he rode the full eight miles out like that."
