Donkeys are having a hard time. For example.

Evidence also emerged of an illegal cross-border trade in donkeys between Ethiopia and Kenya. The findings, published by Oxpeckers Investigative Environmental Journalism and funded by The Donkey Sanctuary, revealed that donkeys are being poached in Ethiopia before enduring a 250km journey in an arid environment, through difficult terrain with no water and scarce feeding, to the Moyale cross-border cities.

Giving work to a donkey is a way of keeping them entertained and out of mischief. They're sensitive creatures, like ogres, and they have a sense of humour.

If a donkey doesn't want to work it will let you know. If a donkey does want to work you'll get good mileage per mouthful of feed. Whether or not it wants to work depends largely on the intelligence and compassion of the donkey handler. When someone calls a donkey stupid the donkey laughs at the handlers stupidity.

Pack animals can go where wheels can't.

Here's a simple way to make an effective and humane donkey pack saddle. Remember, if things don't work out, look at your own behaviour before calling the donkey stupid.
