Driving Down The Road With A Donkey, Horse Or Mule

Driving Down The Road With A Donkey, Horse Or Mule

horsetraileraccident

 

Not my accident…. Please drive careful when following a horse trailer or just driving.

This is not my photo of the trailer accident, I could have not written this any better.  Melody, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

Dear Drivers,

My most valued possession is inside the trailer behind my vehicle. She stepped into that rolling steel box because I asked her to and she trusts me. She’s a living, breathing creature, and all 500kg of her are precariously balanced on four tiny hooves as my vehicle and trailer wind down the road.

My horse is not a boat or camp trailer, and I cannot stop quickly or turn sharply without risking her safety and even her life.

Know that I will do just about anything to avoid hitting the brakes with a horse in my trailer. However, if your Suburban is hidden in the blind spot behind my horse trailer and I do have to stop suddenly, you’re too close to stop without ending up in the trailer with my horse.

When I make those excruciatingly slow, wide turns, I need them to prevent my horse from potentially falling over and injuring herself. Please give me room and time to turn.

And that large distance between me and the car in front of me? It might look like enough room to fit three sedans bumper to bumper, but it’s actually the distance I need to stop softly and safely without my horse falling.

Those times when we’re headed up a hill, my speed is as fast as I can go. My foot has the accelerator pressed to the floor, and no matter how hard you try, your WRX can’t push us up this hill. I promise I’ll move to the left lane when it becomes available or pull over if I find a safe spot on the shoulder, but until then I ask for your patience and some space.

Lastly, my set up weighs 3 tons, and that much weight prevents me from swerving. When you pass me going 100kmph uphill on a blind corner, you don’t just put my horse at risk: Your driving threatens the lives of the oncoming driver, my passenger, me, you, and everyone in the cars behind us.

So next time you see a horse trailer, assume an animal’s in there. Please give the them some space and offer some patience. By driving safely, we’ll all get where we’re going.

These photos show you what happens when a horse trailer driver is forced to attempt to stop suddenly or swerve sharply and suddenly.

Thank you,
Horse, Donkey and Mule Owner

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Mules Rule In Spatial Cognition Tests

Mules Rule In Spatial Cognition Tests

muleswalkingfast

My friend Heather from Serenity’s Musings sent me this article Mules Rule you may find it very interesting and another reason to consider a Mule.  We must remember that some mules have more horse traits and some have more donkey traits.  Be sure to pick you mule carefully.  The Mules who have more donkey traits are used for rides in the Grand Canyon as they are into self-preservation, will  not spook and jump off the trail. :)

Need more info?

Dangerous Seasonal Fruit – Horses, Donkeys and Mules


lilylookinginwoodsbitttlesssogoodFriends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

I received this alert from my vet, I am passing it forward to help save the life of a horse, donkey or mule.

RocketMan2012age18

Seasonal Fruit Fall

Autumn in Washington State means likely horse, donkeys and mules exposure to fruit fall. Too many apples/pears/berries/rosehips and exposure to nuts like black walnuts can not only cause gastrointestinal distress, but may also lead to more serious emergencies like esophageal obstruction and laminitis.

“It seems like every pasture has fruit trees that can be too much of a good thing.”

Please take some time to look around, cut back the blackberries that have encroached and knock down the apples & make some cider for yourself!

Monitor for loose manure and for any signs of colic such as pawing, excessive laying down, gassiness, reduced appetite, and looking at flanks.  These signs can also be due to sand accumulation in the gut which is also a seasonal risk in our area.

Please call your vet if your equine has any of the symptoms above.
