Maybe you wouldn’t say it, but donkeys have played a prominent role in the human world for a long time. Not only have they been helping with work on farms and transport for at least 5,000 years, they play a part in myths and folklore from around the globe.
The photos below show us how donkeys are a part of our lives. How strong they are, how we ride on them, how happy they make us and how they have become part of the family. Enjoy this lovely public domain collection from the Archivo de la Imagen de Castilla La Mancha!
