    I used to have 4 but my hubby and nephew "accidentally" broke them when playing football :angry:
    I had a plastic one but as he got older got really creepy looking so I chucked him in the wheelie bin.
    Now I just have just one called Dusty :dry: (not found Billy yet):giggle:

  9. My mum and dad had a couple in the 60's and 70's. Even then you couldn't trust people not to nick them. They were attached to a big boulder under the soil.

    I was bought one (a big 'un, too!) as a Secret Santa donkeys years ago, complete with fabricated fishing rod. He's still around somewhere.

    EDIT - Can't take a photo of mine, well I can but one of the cats has chewed the lead that connects my camera to the PC.
