Don't look

Came upon this scene. I'm not sure why the donkeys are blindfolded, I think maybe it's similar to putting blinders on horses?
Perhaps finbarr [photoblog.com] you can explain why.

Ok, so yes, apparently fly masks are lightweight devices made of fabric or mesh, which fit securely over a horse’s head. They are used to protect the face and eyes from fly or gnat bites. These insects not only cause your horse to experience discomfort, but they can spread disease through their bites.
Assuming this is what's happening here with these donkey's, they aren't blindfolded, they can still see. —>“blindfolds” [ehow.com]

These are common, especially in climates plagued with flies, gnats, etc. The animals can see thru the mesh and are protected against these pests. It benefits the animals, greatly. We used these on our horses in Texas.

I am with Antonio. Not sure I can get behind this. Wondering how the animals existed without us. And they did.

Great and unusual shots ...
That is used to prevent flies ([url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse-fly]especially horse flies[/url]) and ticks enter in the ears and corners of the eyes ...

Strange. I had never seen totally blinded horses or donkeys. This is almost cruel.
