The first one is an entirely different culture and way of life -- no comment.

The second one is way cool. What an awesome homemade buggy/cart! :) I love it!

I really don't see anything wrong with the first one other than them gagging the donkey with the bit. But I guess they don't know or care any better. I think in some cultures, pulling on the reins is a cue to "go." But I don't remember where I read that.

I feel more sorry for the second photo because the mare has to work while nursing a foal. I bet she will drop a lot of weight doing that. But we are just seeing a snapshot too. Maybe she isn't asked to do grueling hours with a foal sucking her dry.

Keep in mind that a snapshot is just a fraction of a moment frozen in time. To know if the donkey is gagging or just opened his mouth just for that moment, you would have to see a sequence of shots.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

And to add, with the lack of equine knowledge in some parts of the world, and possible lack of funds, the bit may be too big in the first place, hence why it looks like its being pulled from the other side of the mouth.

Ever seen the driving bits they frequently use in India?



I'd say that donkey's lucky.

I've seen a bit like that in a picture in a book with artifacts from ancient Egypt.
HOW do you get that bit back in their mouth the 2nd time?!?!?
