Donkey Cart

Today's picture shows some peasant farmers in Egypt, riding in a donkey cart. The picture was taken around 1930. Donkeys are still widely used in agriculture around the world and even in the US. In West Texas they are no longer a beast of burden but one will be put among a flock of goats or sheep for protection from predators. The donkeys are very social and will adopt the flock and protect them.
