Donkey - CX neck and Wired Ears
DONKEY– CUSTOMISED WITH NECK ADJUSTMENT AND WIRED EARS
The ancestors of the modern donkey are the Nubian and Somalian subspecies of Afican wild ass. Which was domesticated around 4,000 BCE. The donkey became an important pack animal for people living in the Egyptian regions as they can easily carry 20% to 30% of their own body weight and can also be used as a farming. By 1800 B.C., the ass had reached the Middle East where the trading city of Damascus was referred to as the “City of Asses”. By the early 20th century, donkeys began to be used less as working animals and instead kept as pets in the United States and other wealthier nations like the United kingdom, while remaining an important work animal in many poorer regions of the world.
Donkeys have a reputation for stubbornness, but this is due to some handlers' misinterpretation of their highly-developed sense of self-preservation. It is difficult to force or frighten a donkey into doing something it sees as contrary to its own best interest
