Howdy,

The Humble Donkey Carries A Cross


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Howdy,

I’m thinking about how humble the donkey is without any effort just the way GOD made them.  What if us humans could learn how to be more humble with each human and animal we encounter? I think our world would be much easier to navigate, what do you think?

Preparation is the key to success with equine it’s the difference between riding and laying on the ground.  We took our young equine not able to be ridden yet as their bones were not fully developed unable to carry our weight for many trail walks to prepare them for trail riding.  Rio carried our lunch and water please don’t ride your equine too young and please don’t put a heavy weighted human on a miniature or pony this is abuse and it’s not funny. What age is my equine fully grown?

When training plan ahead and make sure your equine is prepared for anything you are asking them to do before you swing your leg over their back.  Safety is a good thing.

Humble meaning in the dictionary let’s make a plan to try to be more humble. What do you think about being humble? Consider leaving a comment. 

What is the meaning of the cross on the donkey? Here is a look at the legend of the cross and the bible verse. 

Donkeys are blessings from GOD no doubt and we are forever grateful for our donkeys.  Please remember if you are working with a donkey to honor and respect them have a plan before working with them.  Most not all donkeys are very introverted and it is very important to not force new things on them too quickly, walk away from them holding the new blanket, saddle or anything new let them come to you and explore don’t force it on them.  

Donkeys are visual learners so try to be creative when setting up training for your donkeys let them see an honor donkey getting his feet picked out and a brush before forcing this on him/her.  I have seen donkeys lay down from fear and the owner pushing to hard and too fast as timing in equine training is essential to success.  My horse is an extrovert and when she gets scared she moves her feet as her personality is to run away under fear with the training from the Parelli program she is much better today.

Did you know that horses, mules and donkeys that are introverted will lay down when they see no way out of what is scaring them from the human predator I mean trainer.  This is a very heart breaking thing for me to see or hear about there is no need for this training and it ruins the equine as now they have lost the desire to learn and be curious and they are terrified.  Try to think of it this way how easy is it for you to learn something new when you are terrified and think you will die? The donkey, horse and mule will lay down from fear of dying they simply give up!  The equine is overwhelmed and afraid of the human predator doing the training. This is why I love Parelli program as they teach the human trainer how to train for each introvert, extrovert and not be a predator for our beloved equine.

Please be a humble equine trainer, have empathy when training horses, donkeys and mules. Extroverted horses can become so afraid they flip over backwards and break their backs or land on the rider but introverts will not move their feet or lay down.  Parelli teaches how to read the horseanalities this is a very powerful tool that can be used for donkeys and mules too. Be a natural trainer without abuse and high standards at performing and I promise you your donkeys, mules and horses will step up far and beyond your expectations. The bonus they will run up to see you every time you come to the gate.  Why? They look forward to the relationship with you not fear it.  All of my equine come to see me every time I go to the gate they know I will treat them with respect and I will never abuse them.  Important consideration; you must be safe and have tools to keep you in the leadership role without abuse so learning the natural training becomes easy for you and your beloved equine.

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