This poor cart donkey!
Its not like he is pulling a heavy load just the whole rig itself is... well... I have no word for this. Just look at the bit! Comments anyone?
wait a minute! I have found another one! Note the foal on the left side.
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.
I see a lot wrong with the first picture. They needa back off that donkey before it goes crazy!
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.
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 had no idea such things existed, how horrific :(
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?!?!?
