Photos of your donkey with a donkey
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:49:04 am »
I love donkeys. Not quite sure why. Here is a pic I took on the weekend somewhere between Soshanguve and Bela-Bela. If you have some more of your bike with a donkey please add.

PS. Apologies for the picture quality but I only had my cellphone with me

You must love donkeys.  They were good enough for my father many years ago.    :laughing4:

What a cool thread! :thumleft:
My dad used to have two donkeys before he bought the Jeep to plough with... the Jeep was useless... then he bought a Furguson... to this day he says the donkeys were better. :mwink:

There were 4 donkeys at this particular spot. You can just see another one above the bike's screen. Another one was casually walking in the middle of the road and refused to move for a bus travelling at speed. The bus had to swerve off the road to avoid it  ;D

Typical donkey attitude... the jenny my dad had was named Dolores... there was a particular ditch in one field that Dolores point blank refused to pull the plough through. That was the main reason they got replaced by the Jeep wich could also not pull the plough through the ditch... ::)
I also have a soft spot for them because Delores was such a gentle donkey, I always felt very safe taking a ride as a child.

Now I need to go and take a ride to find donkeys! :mwink:

Peta Jones is an old friend of mine who is convinced that donkeys are the best way to go for rural development.  This is her book and the blurb.

Donkeys for development
by
Peta Jones
1997
ISBN 0-620-22177-1


Recent studies have made clear what has been known to farmers for years: that donkey power is crucial to smallholder economy, to help with tillage, transport and thus with reconstruction and development.  Donkeys are hardier and stronger than cattle, and work for many more years with little human input besides care and supervision. The last decade has seen a dramatic increase in the academic interest given to donkeys, while at the same time the demand for them, and their price, has risen.

This book aims to answer most of the basic questions about donkeys asked by those who need them and work with them, incorporating recent research findings as well as traditional knowledge acquired over the thousands of years that donkeys have worked for humans.

Dr Jones has not only worked as a teacher and consultant with donkeys, but herself lives in a remote rural area of Africa where she is dependent on donkeys for all local transport and cultivation.  She writes from an awareness of the problems that donkeys can create as well as the problems that they can solve, and the equipment that she recommends and illustrates with numerous drawings and photographs is all within the reach and skills of rural villagers of the developing world.

Namibia, 2008.
Ons het gestop vir 'n koue en toe kom die manetjie uit die bos gewals.
Daar was gin mens of dier in sig nie en die ou het baie aandag gesoek so ek hoop sy ma was in die omgewing.
