15)[line 25]מחמרMECHAMER

(a)It is forbidden to lead a donkey (Chamor) or other animal on Shabbos while it is laden, even by calling to it. One who does so transgresses a negative prohibition. (RAMBAM Hilchos Shabbos 20:6)

(b)"Shevisas Behemah" is a closely related positive commandment. One is required to allow his animals to rest on Shabbos as it states, "Lema'an Yanu'ach Shorcha va'Chamorecha" - "so that your ox and your donkey may rest" (Shemos 23:12). If one causes his animal to do work (i.e., one of the 39 categories of Melachah) on Shabbos, whether or not he is present at the time he transgresses a positive commandment. (This is not the same as Mechamer, which only applies when one leads his animal and the animal is laden).

16)[line 35]קלי קלי לאKALI KALI LO- but not a little at a time, i.e. it is forbidden to walk casually
