Thank you for the gift link! Great article.
I love this quote:
"Dr. Merrifield finds in a donkey’s eyes “a touching sadness, a grace,” and a purity that “has no right to exist in the human world.”

So true, especially right beside a comment about the Donkey Skin trade, which I had never even heard about. I am so appalled to know that yet another animal species is the victim of traditional Chinese medicine.

LOVE the last photo! Hugging a donkey is something special, more so than a horse, I think.


Totally agree. They are so huggable. Mine is like a lap dog.
