In yesterday's post, I mentioned that horsemeat and donkey meat are food products in France. I wasn't kidding. We stopped at the small Sunday morning market in Castelnau Montratier before going to our lunch with the donkeys.. There in the sausage vendor's display was donkey ('ane') sausage. I have no objection to eating either horse or donkey meat; I might even be persuaded to try it myself sometime. It was just a bit unsettling, though, to see it right before we had a date to dine with donkeys who had only just narrowly escaped this fate!
