Donkey and Mule Nannies Carry Baby Lambs to their Mothers

Here's another example of wonderful relationships between animals. Equipped with a specially-made saddle to carry newborn lambs, these donkey and mule nannies in the Italian Alps of Lombardy bring these precious babies 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. These beautiful babies are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.
