donkey at Aberdour studio in Scotland

For a number of years Robert Stuart Brown operated a studio at Station Road, Aberdour, Fife, where a donkey was kept as a 'prop'.

I thought this pretty interesting since I have been to Aberdour. I once read in a book Scotland was too cold for donkeys. This is such a crock of donkey dung. I live in a far colder area with more snow fall than anywhere in Scotland and my donkeys like it out in the snow. Mine run in and out all winter they are never locked in a stall. If any of you out there have more on the history of donkeys in Scotland please let me know?
