When we talk about animal trend, dogs are inclined to dig up all the interest. During the wintry weather, every little doggie appears to have its personal jacket.
The dog owners spend hoards of money to style their doggies and turn them Instagram famous. They style them using special headpieces, cute feather boas and badges.
But did you know that a few donkeys also boast of their personal special sartorial fashion? It comes out that in certain portions of the globe; donkeys are attired in customized pants in a bid to prevent annoying flies from pricking their legs.
At the Donkey Sanctuary Of Canada, volunteer Sheila Zanyk put on Ben a pair of trousers to put a stop to the flies from troubling him. And it appears as though other animals are currently getting something similar.
‘It took a few tries but it’s working well now,’ she told media people.
“The first time we put them on him, he was really proud of himself. He walked around the whole barnyard – just 'look at me, look at me'.”
After getting used to the sound of the velcro – which startled him at first – Ben currently boasts of two pairs of trousers and will be putting on them both until the winter period, when the flies lastly scram.

Whilst over on the Ile de Ren, in the south of France, donkeys put on an overall more European pant style
Jonathan Bucks - Fun fact - on the Ile de Re, in the south of France, donkeys are traditionally dressed in fashionable trousers to stop mosquitoes from biting their legs.
And no doubt, the trend will spread to donkeys in other countries in the near future.
