In Peta Jones’s book Donkeys for Development published by ATNESA states that a donkey should not carry more than 1/3 of its weight. As this is a UN funded project, they aimed for an absolute maximum. Many owners in Africa exceed this. But a much more humane approach is to aim for no more than 25%. Pack horses used in treks in the West now aim for 15%. The trick is: how do you figure out the donkey’s weight? The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, UK has a handy calculator.

For more than 6000 years DONKEYS have been carrying and pulling loads, turning wheels and generally laboring away to extend the work of humans. More recently they have been joined by horses, camels, and oxen, but even today, all over the world where resources are scarce and speed is less important, donkeys are still the main providers of such work. Give them a thought; give them some appreciation. If any are nearby, go give them a biscuit! Peta A. Jones, MSc, PhD, South Africa. Originally published at camel4all.
