In twenty-eight years of living and working overseas, I have seen only one donkey who had a haircut.

While walking through the market in Suakin, I encountered this solitary creature tied to his pull cart.  Presumably, his owner fancied himself to be a donkey barber and had created a hair tattoo on his torso.

In North America and Europe, people occasionally  hire barbers to inscribe their name or designs into their hair.  Doing the same thing to a donkey seems a bit odd.  The donkey barber's handiwork never caught on in Sudan as this was the only donkey sporting this look.

I didn't get a haircut from the Sudanese barbers.  Instead, my wife took out her scissors and comb and trimmed my hair on the beach.
