Hi All

Found this site by accident and wish I'd spotted it a lot sooner.

We're on a block just outside Taradale and share cattle with neighbours. My wife (for better or worse) has two donkeys- does the term "turner" mean anything? [;)]

cheers

Turns good food into crap? Turn the donkeys into steak and roasts? Could mean any number of things. I should imagine they'd taste a lot like horse. I've never knowingly eaten horse myself but I've been told by those who have that it's very good.

Hi Chris, welcome to the forum. I thought a turner worked with wood, but never heard of it in association with donkeys....

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

I've heard the term associated with Labradors-but the first meaning mentioned by igor, not the second!

Hi Chris. I guess you have been LSBing for 2 years. We've been doing it for 19 years, so have 19 asses. If you are not a member of the Donkey & Mule Association, I suggest you join. They have lots of good information and knowledgable people. Our donkeys turn barley grass, thistles, barberry, tree prunings, pine needles into compost.

Sue, a Chinese man once told me that they eat "the big dumb meat dogs". A lot of Labradors I have met would fit in that category.

Obviously a few people are fully au fait with the term turner :)
I do some wood turning but def don't associate that with donkeys.

We've actually been on our block about 11yrs now. My wife is a member of the Donkey and Mule Ass'n and has a local donkey specialist trim their hooves as required.

Hi,
First of all, welcome to all the new members, you have joined a wonderful site.
Now to donkeys and horses, when living overseas I have eaten products made from both animals. I enjoyed them all.
In The Netherlands, horsemeat is sold only by specialist horse butchers and you can buy a full range of cuts including smoked varieties.
No doubt, some of the meat would be used in sausages, franks etc etc.
Donkey meat is popular in Southern Germany, it is used mainly in cooked and smoked
sausages and a big variety of other garlic style smallgoods as I was told.
Every time I mention this at home my wife nearly flips her lid (being a pom and a horse lover)
Best regards to all,
Jan. Brisbane.

Apparently donkeys and horses are fairly popular in USA, and sometimes turn up for, or is that "as" ?, dinner at barbeques. I've never had either myself, but Mum has a story of how she took some meat home to Devon from London just after the WW2. The dinner was really nice until her Dad said "Whooa, Neddy".
