Historians have paid some attention to horses, but essentially as machines of war and prestige, whereas donkeys, wild asses, mules and zebras have been altogether neglected. It is suggested here that equids were significant economic resources in the Sahel-Sudan Belt, the Ethiopian highlands, and the savannas of eastern and southern Africa.
