Which countries have the most ‘ass-holes’?

The asses is a domesticated member of the horse family, Equidae. The wild ancestor of theasses is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The asses has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years. There are more than 40 million asses in the world, mostly in underdeveloped countries, where they are used principally as drought or pack animals. Working asses are often associated with those living at or below subsistence levels. Small numbers of asses are kept for breeding or as pets in developed countries.


A male asses is called a jack, a female a jenny or jennet a young donkey is a foal.Jack donkeys are often used to mate with female horses to produce mules the biological “reciprocal” of a mule, from a stallion and jenny as its parents instead, is called a hinny.

Asses were first domesticated around 3000 BC, probably in Egypt or Mesopotamia, and have spread around the world. They continue to fill important roles in many places today. While domesticated species are increasing in numbers, the African wild ass and another relative, the onager, are endangered. As beasts of burden and companions, asse and donkeys have worked with humans for millennia.
