About Anatolia Donkeys
Anatolia Donkeys are also known as Brown Donkeys and are
mainly found throughout Turkey. They are usually black and gray.
Anatolia Donkeys date back beyond the Ottoman Empire; they
were used alongside mules and horses to transport goods along rivers, steep
slopes, and rocky terrain. Most often they were used by peasants to transport goods
before the roads and bridges were built. Today they are still extensively used
in the East Anatolia Region and Northeastern part of
Black Sea Coast in the more mountainous areas where the donkey’s
surefootedness is essential.
