By the way, why do you think donkey milk is used in Provencal cosmetics?
Because the donkeys of Provence are part of the local fauna. The ‘anes de Provence’ breed was recognized only in 1995 despite being ancient in the region. The donkey from Provence is small, gray and robust.
His distinguishing sign is a dark brown band near his neck called the Cross of Saint Andrew, matching the tips of his ears. According to legend, the grateful Virgin Mary offered this sign to the donkey for having carried her on his back to the stable in Bethlehem.
What a cute face, don't you think?
