As they carry different loads and pull carts donkeys suffer from variety of injuries. Most of the wounds are caused by lack of appropriate harness, poor design or wrong use of such materials. In Ethiopia One in every three donkey has got back sores. These are caused as donkey owners put hot flour and other items on bare back of donkeys. Even when they use padding the design is not suited for the type of load and sometimes made of synthetic material and fitted on the wrong part of the body.
