A donkey worked for ten years for the same owner without any thanks and for very little food but one day he goes lame and the owner decides he does not need a wonky donkey. The donkey goes to a farm and a beach looking for work and eventually he arrives at a big house. Fortunately for him the little girl falls in love with him and it doesn't matter one bit to her that he's wonky. One day the little girl doesn't come home and her father is thrown into panic. The wonky donkey wastes no time in going to find her but the final rescue of the little girl who has fallen in the river is too much for him and he breathes his last on the river bank. A statue is built to pay testament to the wonky donkey's bravery.
