Cattle, cows, bulls, are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are members of the subfamily Bovinae and are the most widespread species of the genus Bos. They are raised as livestock for meat, as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, as draft animals (pulling carts, plows and the like), for leather and dung for manure or fuel. There here are 1.3 billion cattle in the world today.
**BURRO The donkey, ass, or burro, Equus africanus asinus, is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family. Its wild ancestor is the African wild ass, E. africanus. It has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years. There are more than 40 million donkeys in the world, used principally as draught or pack animals.
Burro is the Spanish word for donkey. May also be called burro mexicano ('Mexican donkey'), burro criollo ('Criollo donkey'), or burro criollo mexicano. In the southwestern US, "burro" is used as a loan word by English speakers for any small donkey used chiefly as a pack animal, as well as to describe the feral donkeys that live in Arizona, California, Oregon, Utah and Nevada.
Donkeys first came to the Americas on supply ships with the Second Voyage of Christopher Columbus, and landed at Hispaniola in 1495. The first to reach North America may have been two animals taken to Mexico in 1528. More were requested in order to assist the native people, who had been branded and enslaved by the Conquistadores.
**WILD HORSE A wild American horse, or Mustang, is a free-roaming horse of the North American west that descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish. The first Mustangs were descended from Iberian horses brought to Mexico and Florida. Most were of Andalusian, Arabian and Barb ancestry. Some escaped or were captured by Native Americans, and rapidly spread throughout western North America. The US Congress recognized Mustangs as "living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West.
