Donkeys have photographic memories. Donkeys evolved from the desert. Donkeys are seriously into self-preservation. Perhaps you are new to donkeys and at first your donkey was quiet and nice and then all of a sudden the donkey started getting pushy.  Yes donkeys when scared are introverted usually not always but can be really quiet and stand scared with new things.  Donkeys can canter like a horse, trot, and walk like a horse.  But never think a donkey is a horse as they are not a horse a donkey is a donkey. 🙂

Both  of our donkeys Mammoth Rio and Mini Rocket Man run and play with one another with their ears flat back they are thinking and playing.  Yes Rio can come running at me when I have a treat with his ears back or when he is going out to his wooded pasture for a little brush eating.  

What should I do when my donkey comes running at me with his/her ears back, teeth showing?

First be safe and say Whoaa, wave your arms in front of you to stop them. I teach the owner of a donkey, horse or mule to stay safe without any abuse ever. With my equine I use my voice and if need be I will throw my hands up  in the air to stop them, clap my hands anything to stop the incorrect behavior.  Never run from a horse, donkey or mule and never turn your back, teach your equine to keep “two eyes looking at you, just like the ocean the human must respect the equine and stay in the leadership role at all times without abuse, never turn your back on the equine.”   Working with Donkeys, Horses and Mules (equine) can be dangerous so stay safe, “ON DONKEY TIME” and enjoy your equine as they are gifts from GOD.

Never give a treat when the equine is pushing you to give it.  Give the treat when they are relaxed and have earned the treat, calm and respectfully.  My horse must turn her head away from me to get a treat this helps her think before trying to bully the treat out of my hand.  Lot’s of ways you can get your timing ready to teach the equine to receive the treat use your creativity to plan ahead and teach them to accept the treat.  All of my equine come to me when called without a food treat.  They get the physical, mental and emotional treat of me loving on them, brushing them, talking to them, picking their hooves and taking them for a walk.

Remember they can not kick you or bite you if your timing is great, they are looking to see if you are a leader or a follower, remember each time you are with your equine you are the human leader, you have the human mind put your cell phone away, job away, kids away and just be in the moment with your equine.  I say “You must be plugged into your equine to stay safe and be a great leader.” 

A leader stands like a leader, walks like a leader, has a plan. Donkeys are smart we must have a plan or the donkey will lead the human around.

Remember it’s easy to get into the routine of feeding and rushing thru the process.  I highly suggest you do not do this ever, stay plugged in, stay safe, stay alert “STAY ON DONKEY TIME” to manage health concerns before they become a serious vet bill.  Put the safest fencing up you can afford and if you can afford to put video surveillance up use it as it is a wonderful tool.  Remember all equine are looking for a great human leader, be the best human leader you can be and I promise you the equine will reward you with amazing gifts.


 Equine are gifts from GOD be grateful for them as each day is indeed precious and fragile.


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

    We love your work here. Of course, with Weezie and Napoleon occupying their ground on our little spread, it’s easy to become enamored by others who love these guys (donkeys that is). Our miniatures aren’t much of a threat but can still get obstinate when they choose. They’ve become free-grazers on the ranch and pretty much do as they please. Weezie still comes running when I call though… so life is good. Blessings

      When I am teaching I am trying to teach to help all levels of education and experience for the human to provide the best home for their equine. Sounds like a little over training on my part when I read my stuff but people forget the equine needs us to be the smart human. The equine needs the human to have a plan each and every time they are with them. Safety is always my number one most concern for the equine and the human. Donkeys are so sweet and so smart they are special and unique. Thank you for reading my blog and taking a moment to comment. You are blessed to have these sweet donkeys in your life.

      e-mail is would you like 1 hour of my time to help you evaluate your farm needs? Some donkeys stand outside when they can’t get into their stall. Others are afraid they will be locked in due to former abuse. I can add you to my personal coaching calendar for 1 hour if you want my one-on-one time. Melody

    How many hands tall is your mammoth donkey? Mine is barely the required height…I’m so jealous.
