The Common Donkey; Beast of Burden

The common donkey of Erce is rather small, yet strong. It is capable of carrying heavy loads for long distances, and at moderately high speeds as well. It is a fast, strong, small animal, and is often used as a beast of burden. You may see a common donkey just about snywhere, from on a well-known pathway, to a small village or large city. The common donkey is so useful that almost everybody owns one, if not two or three. Nobles with a great deal of money may even purchase half a dozen to pull their carriages. The common donkey is somewhat beautiful, for a four-legged beast. Its fur can be any shade of grey, brown, or white. Often a common donkey will even have a bright gold stripe of fur on its head, as well as having silver hoofs.
