Bringing Your donkey home is the most important video. Why? This video helps the owner or caretaker set the farm up for the success and for health. The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® trains the owner or caretaker to train the donkey. Training donkeys is serious business. Training donkeys is not the same as training horses. Donkeys evolved from the desert. Donkeys can think, plan and before you know it the donkey has trained the human to do exactly what the donkey wants to do.

Donkeys who cannot get their hooves trimmed, come when called, drag the human on the lead line, live a grim life.  These donkeys are sold, re-sold and at high risk for meat buyer sales. All domesticated donkeys need to have social skills. All donkeys can be trained using resistance free methods, no pain. Learn how to Stay On Donkey Time ®, never drill, be fair. Most importantly learn how to do quality exercises with your donkey, short no more than twenty minutes. Return the next day to see what your donkey has learned. Donkeys have photographic memories.

Which one are you?

 

I am married to my best friend and husband Scott of twenty-seven years, I am forever grateful to him for helping me keep my dream of farm living in the midst of trauma.  I am a survivor of a life-threatening car accident. We share our life with one Mammoth donkey, three mini donkey, two rescue standard donkeys, two horses, three dogs and one kitty.  

Donkeys, horses and mules are healing for humans they help us step out of our personal journey in life.  To know a donkey will forever change the human who wants to learn and love again. Many people call themselves horse trainers. A donkey trainer is at the top of the equine training game. Training a donkey takes personal work and letting go of our ego and goals in life. Donkeys are always On Donkey Time ®. Donkeys are game players.

God in Jesus Christ name is amazing! I share why Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and how my husband and I trust GOD to hold us tight in the middle of trauma. I am the survivor a a life threatening car accident. I am physically disabled. GOD is amazing! We continue to thank GOD for his Miracle of life and healing one day at a time.When I am pressed on every side by troubles, I am not crushed and broken.  When I am perplexed because I don’t know why things happen as they do, I don’t give up and quit. 2nd Corinthians 4:8 I pray my transparency gives you hope and the ability to never give up most importantly make Jesus Christ you Lord and Savior.  The bible is still my favorite book.

When jennies display signs of estrus or being in heat typically the jenny will open and
shut her mouth, known as mouth clapping, as well as increase braying and she will allow other jennies to mount her or she will mount other jennies. This type of behavior is also seen in cows and heifers when they come into heat.

Take Melody Johnson to the farm via any smart device. Print out our book attached to each training video. Stay On Donkey Time ® as donkeys cannot be forced to do anything. We cannot bribe a donkey and we cannot punish a donkey to follow us. The donkey must form a relationship with the human and most of all the donkey must trust us at all times. Never abuse a donkey, never betray a donkey. Learn how to be a fair leader 100% of the time you are with your donkey. If you see another human hurting your donkey or animal stop it. If your donkey watches you do nothing over pain and abuse the donkey will deem you unworthy to be a leader. The leader steps in and stops pain. Pain is ineffective in training animals and humans. Pain teaches to never trust. We want trust 100% of the time we are with our donkey. Trust is earned.

“Horses dream of being trained the way a donkey demands to be trained” Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.

Donkey 102  video on demand trains the owner or caretaker how to problem solve and train the donkey.  Donkey 102 teaches you the owner or caretaker how to use the stick and string (fiberglass leather tip) to touch the donkey never hurt the donkey. A tap to keep on when walking, a wiggle to stop the bolt, desensitizing to prepare for the farrier and more. This stick is a must have for your shelter and farm. Seriously an extension of your arm. 🙂

ON DONKEY TIME ® is our business logo! Stay calm, have a plan and be a fair leader.  Never betray a donkey. Never drill a donkey. Do not bring a trainer into your farm or send your donkey to a trainer unless they have studied Donkey 101 & 102 and will never abuse or give pain to your donkey.

Donkeys follow the human they trust and respect. Trust is earned and proven. This is the person who lives on the farm, picks up poop, feeds and cares for the donkey(s). 

Sadly donkeys who have no social skills are at high risk for re-sale and meat buyers. Please take the time to learn how to train your donkey. Peace and harmony are guaranteed to come back to the farm. It’s all about the human. Preparation is the key to training a donkey. Donkeys learn at the release of pressure not from pain. The donkey has trained the human. Some donkeys are rescue donkeys meaning they have met the worst kind of human. Donkeys have photographic memories. Donkeys never forget good or bad. Fixing a donkeys that has been abused will take Donkey 101 and Donkey 102 and time. No donkey is a throw away donkey.

Stay ON DONKEY TIME ® never drill or stress your donkey out. Tomorrow will be a better day.

onkeys, Mules and Horses will drink more water in the winter if it is clean and warm. Clean fresh water is truly one of the most important things we can do to keep our equine healthy while living in domestication.

 

Donkeys, Horses and Mules Love Clean Water


 

Here Comes The Rain
 
If your donkey is laying in mud be sure to get the mud off when it drys. Why? Mud has the potential to give sores to equine. The best way to remove the dirt and mud is a brush in the winter. Be gentle around the eyes and ears. We place sawdust down in the high traffic areas and a place to sleep outside.

Donkey Health Tip – MUD


Donkeys on the whole do not show their feelings of pain in very obvious ways, but behave as a human would who is called ‘stoical’, i.e. tolerating pain without complaint. They may make an initial violent movement of avoidance, but after that they become silent and as nearly as possible immobile in the face of pain and/or fear.

Therefore it is sometimes difficult to know when they are suffering acutely, and their behavior may look like ‘stubbornness’ rather than stoicism.

One indicator of pain or fear can be diarrhea, just as in humans. Since this may also dehydrate the donkey, it will be adding to its problems if it persists. A donkey who stops eating and drinking is at risk for death.

Please call the vet ASAP to save your donkeys life.

Bringing Your Donkey Home DONKEY CARE


DONKEYS EVOLVED FROM THE DESERT – LEARN HOW TO FEED YOUR DONKEY AND KEEP YOUR DONKEY HEALTHY

Donkeys are stoic meaning “Donkeys will not show pain until it is too late.” You must call the vet asap when a donkey is sick. Death comes quickly as the donkey has not shown how sick her or she is. Pick up the poop every day and compost. This way you know how much your donkey is pooping. It is vital to the health and life of your donkey to be alert to your donkeys personality, behavior and life patterns of eating and pooping.

Make sure your neighbors are not feeding your donkey. DONKEYS DIE FROM BEING FED THE WRONG FOODS OR TOO MUCH FOOD OR WOOD, BARK ETC.,

 

Move the fence and pasture away from people throwing food. Grass clippings, apples, bread etc., can kill your donkey quick.

What are the signs of Colic in a donkey?

Donkeys eyes looked glazed over, head may be low and your donkey looks sick. Or head is moving constantly.

Donkey is refusing to eat and is not acting like his normal behavior off all alone. Not interacting with the rest of the herd or you!

Donkey is pawing, rolling and not stopping this behavior. Some donkeys will roll and paw when bored but this stops quickly. If you see this happening over and over it is time to call the vet. Donkeys die from colic quickly.

Donkey can be shaking

Sweating. A donkey that is sweating is sick and needs a vet asap

Has not pooped. Donkeys should be pooping and urinating often

Donkey refuses to drink or eat. Donkeys love to eat. We must not let a donkey over eat.

Donkey is breathing really fast, check the heart rate

Gums are bright red

What is colic?

Colic is a symptom rather than a disease, and defined as abdominal pain. Colic can be the direct cause of the following issues:

Change of diet – Can not poop. Or blockages meaning food is not being digested, gas

Muscles can be cramping and spasming

Parasites

Pancreatitis

The gut has twisted

Ulcers in the stomach

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