Donkey House

Christmas wouldn't be complete without pictures of Donkeys. The house above is in a donkey pasture, which as far as I can tell is its only relation to donkeys.  This house was renovated and saved a few tears back. But on to the donkey pictures.

Unfortunately, none of these pictures are of Jerusalem or Christian donkeys. Jerusalem donkeys have darker fur across the shoulders in the shape of a cross. Mary rode a donkey on the trip to Egypt, stopping off for the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem just before his trial and execution. The cross is said to be a reminder of the donkeys sorrow that he was not allowed to bear the cross for Jesus at the end.
