"It all began on a summer outing at Porthbargos Bay, when Matthew's little sister tried to persuade their grandfather to winter one of the beach donkeys on his Cornish small-holding. He didn't say yes, but then he didn't say no, either. Their grandmother, though, was less than happy at the prospect.' animals always mean tears,' she said firmly, and refused to explain what she meant by that odd remark." But their grandfather did decide to winter a donkey, and Goldie, beautiful Goldie, arrived. She helped Matthew and his cousin Fred raise money for the Lansenwyth Silver Band, she appeared in the end of term concert at school, and even had a part to play in the Christmas pageant at Truro Cathedral. When Easter came, and there was talk of Goldie going back to her beach work, she had become one of the family. It was then that Matthew remembered his grandmother's words: 'Animals always mean tears,' and he knew just what she had meant.
