Cowboy Dressage - The Poitou donkey is a breed of donkey originating in the Poitou region of France. It is one of the largest donkey breeds and was selected for size so that it could be used for the production of large working mules, in conjunction with the Poitevin horse breed. It is known for its distinctive coat, called a cadanette, which hangs in long, ungroomed cords. Breeders originally prized the coats highly, but today, many Poitou donkeys are shorn for hygienic reasons
Job owned 500 female donkeys. The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding besides them: the Sabeans raided them, took the animals away and killed the servants with swords. One messenger escaped to tell Job.
