Today's pictures come from the Donkey Cart class held last week at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. This class was open to donkeys of all sizes and carts of all styles. The competitors walked and trotted in both directions of the arena and before being called to the center to receive their ribbons. As in the showmanship class, top honors went to the white donkey. This was a very well trained donkey who had performed willingly all day. However, even he wasn't immune to a little donkey stubborness. When his number was called to receive the blue ribbon, he refused to walk forward and eventually an official had to come over and give him a jump-start!
