Willow donkey by Jacqueline Rolls


I created this cute willow donkey over 4 years ago he was my first experiment into creating four legged creatures.  I don’t have many opportunities to make large animals as I don’t have the room to store them so I decided to keep him to test how he would fare outside with no preservative.

I created him totally out of willow with no metal in his legs to give him strength

So I have now given him a small repair he needed a new tail and repair to his legs and back so he has managed well so I decided to send him retirement and he is now very comfortable at the Little Forest Land Art with his own shelter so that he is all nice and snug.
