Ode to the Donkey

I have mentioned numerous times how I miss the donkeys in Ethiopia. I have joked with my husband that we really should get one. Then I read an article from the Equine Chronicle about the importance of donkeys in Ethiopia.

Why are they so important?

The article states, “…at least 40% of households surveyed said donkeys helped reduce women’s work while all communities said equine animals were economically important for rural and urban communities for all wealth groups”.
