Donkey and Mule Nannies: Each year in Italy, grazing animals are moved from high pastures down to the plains. Newborn lambs are unable to make this journey on their own. Instead, they ride in the pouches of a specially made saddle on the back of a donkey/mule nanny. They are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.
