Grass always looks greener on other side of the fence, Daisy
Social media, just like politicians, often has a poor image but there is no finer way of launching an appeal for help as Ballyclare man Raymond Semple did when his pet donkey, Daisy, disappeared.
Daisy, it seems, just wanted to find out if the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence, so she chewed through her rope and hightailed it seven miles away. The flighty donkey was recaptured four days later when someone recognised her from the Facebook appeal.
Her four days of fame are over but Daisy appears content in the knowledge that there really is nowhere just like home.
