Natural To Blanket Our Beloved Domesticated Horse, Donkey Or Mule?

Natural To Blanket Our Beloved Domesticated Horse, Donkey Or Mule?

riosnowfeb092014age7

Is It Natural To Blanket A Domesticated Equine (horse, donkey or mule) when the wind chill and snow is horrific?

First let me step back  in time and share how I came to my inner peace with the natural equine world. When I was a kid with my horse in the 70′s we did not do the teeth, blanket, and we sure as heck did not do our own worming. Guess what folks we now live in the year 2014 and things have improved for our beloved domesticated equine.

My husband and I pick up the poop on ten acres in Sequim, WA every day and compost, I take fecal samples to the vet and do not worm unless I need to. I now make sure I have blankets for all of our eight equine in case of an emergency winter or sickness. I prepare before the blanket is needed as we have four new donkeys in training and three of them are afraid of the blanket. I do not want to be outside in the freezing cold training to wear a blanket. When Rocket Man our mini age twenty had oral surgery a few years ago due to broken tooth that could have assessed I had to blanket him, his surgery lasted three and half hours and he was very sick for a good week. Additionally he has arthritis and so does Rio our Mammoth donkey as he is 16’2 and this does happen to the big guys even when only eight years old. I am fifty-four and I have arthritis from the semi-truck accident and believe me the cold hurts bad.

A few things to consider:

1. Nothing is natural about any equine living a domesticated life, even when we do our best to remove the shoes when not trail riding or use boots for trail riding. My farm is set up so all of my horses and donkeys can choose to go into their stall to eat and drink and get out of the weather if they choose. If they choose not to that’s ok too. Locking any equine in a stall will make them crib, make them have trust issues and make them crazy. If the vet orders stall rest yes we have to lock the equine in. Equine were created to walk fifteen to twenty-five miles a day. Most domesticated equine stand around and wait for their meals. Nothing is natural about living a domesticated life. I let all of my equine grow a fur coat and I blanket when sick, when wicked weather comes I check each and every day for sores, rubbing or a loose blanket/too tight in a place etc., I  replace with a dry coat as needed until the weather changes or the equine is no longer sick. Here in the Pacific Northwest, WA we do not have weather that stays in the 20′s very long. We go back into the 30′s pretty fast. We do however have high winds seventy mile an hour winds in the winter is common.

ARENA2014SNOWFEB09_edited-1

2. When an equine is in the wild they can run and get warm and find a place to get out of the elements.

The farm we lived on above for thirteen years in Kingston WA had two pole stalls I placed  at the top of the hill (paddock) to stop mud. Guess what happened if they ran to warm up on ice down a hill? They fell down and had injuries. Blanketing stopped them from trying to run to warm up and they stood nice and calm. Interesting ha?

3. Any equine who has arthritis or is sick, surgery, too young to withstand the extreme cold needs a blanket. Blanketing is hard work as you must check it every day and when it is really wet replace with a dry blanket. Sorry, no blanket is 100% waterproof for the entire winter and fall season. Thus why I only blanket when we hit the high 20′s with a wind chill in the Pacific Northwest pushing me below 0 etc., I never blanket with just rain as they can go in the stall and get out of the wind and rain, unless they are sick.

4. When you keep their water clean and warm along with plenty of free choice low sugar hay in your slow feeder you are helping your domesticated equine to stay warm. When you walk into the barn and your equine are shivering or not moving at all frozen stiff you had better blanket. Death can be avoided from ignorance and high vet bills.

Here is an outstanding blog I just read that prompted me to write about this. Select Blanketing is Not Bad And You Are Not Natural to read some more brilliant ways to understand why it is imperative you are prepared for a sick equine, older arthritis or the wicked winter that may or may not come.

LILYFEB092014SNOWFARM

Please use common sense when blanketing and locking your equine in a stall, after all you chose the equine and they are depending on you to learn everything you can to keep them healthy and happy.

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

Why do donkeys lay their heads on one another?


Originally posted on Morning Bray Farm:

Why do donkeys lay their heads on one another? All of our boys do this often, and we get asked this question a lot. In fact, Nancy in NC asked just the other day, so I figure now’s the perfect time to offer an answer.  

The Donkey Companion provides a great explanation for this typical behavior found in donkeys:  

Assurance

Donkeys are physical animals who treasure each other through body contact. A jenny comforts her foal by holding him gently between her chin and her chest. Older youngsters and adults drape their heads across another’s back or rump to reassure or show affection; they rest their heads on a favorite human’s shoulder for the same reason.

There’s nothing at all like having one of the boys rest his head on my back or shoulder. It feels just like getting a big bear hug. ♥

Congratulations to the winner of our 150th post contest; Colleen, who left…

Courage To Live My Life With No Regrets

Courage To Live My Life With No Regrets

melodyandlily2014labordayweekendsequim

couragejohnway couragegrowup

Faith is something I know down to my toes, I have no doubt anywhere and no worries. Faith is a gift from Jesus Christ. To have faith is really a blessing in these most difficult times we all live in, economy, life, sickness, death, trauma and more. Takes courage to listen to GOD, takes courage to say I am a Christian, takes courage to start your own business in an economy failing, takes courage to say I do to marriage. NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!

The Donkey Is Still The Under Dog


donkeyabused
Will you have the courage to share this today and help the donkeys?  Please help if you can, even by sharing this post you are helping. Donkeys are still very much ‘a beast of burden’ in Egypt. ACE provide free veterinary care and education in animal husbandry. Select EGYPTACE 
 
Sadly the U.S.A. donkeys are abused by being overfed with the wrong feeds. Donkey Roping, Donkey Basketball, Donkey Penning and Donkey Baseball. Donkeys have a weight limit too. This is why I do what I do to help create awareness and change for the beloved under dog the Donkey. Tears for the abused donkeys in the U.SA. and out of the U.S.A. This is why I do what I do to help create awareness for the donkey, Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.
