Donkeys and mules are a regular feature on our walks across Kythnos, the Greek island near to Athens. Many work hard in between a pause in a field. Many crave the company of another of their species and also become attached to their owners. Some like being hugged around the neck. All the same, they will happily bite your hand or even your bum if you are not careful. So stay attentive.
