The Provence Donkey is a mammal of the family Equidae which also includes the horse and zebra. It has been domesticated since the 5th millennium BC in Egypt. There are still some in the wild. Contrary to what we think, the donkey is much smarter than the horse. He has ears longer than those of the horse. He is content with little food and requires less maintenance. His strength and docility make him an excellent ally for the man to carry heavy loads. The jenny is the female donkey, and the foal is their little one. The domestic donkey lives in a stable. His cry is braying: the donkey brait.
