Donkey left in very good pasture (9)


I believe the answer is:


'pasture' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'donkey left in very good' is the wordplay.
'donkey' becomes 'ass' (ass is a term for a donkey).
'left' becomes 'l' (common abbreviation).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'very good' becomes 'grand' (I've seen this in other clues).
'assl' placed inside 'grand' is 'GRASSLAND'.

(Other definitions for grassland that I've seen before include "(growth area)" , "Plain" , "green countryside" , "pasture" , "Large area suitable for grazing" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
