"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Advocates Need Help to Stop Donkey Roping

We stopped this before we can do it again! Please re-blog and start taking action to say NO TO DONKEY ROPING. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

  •  Gentlemen,

    Subj: Donkey Roping Event to be held on May 25th and 26th, 2013.

    I study equine behavioral science extensively under the Parelli home study program. I have personally owned a Mammoth donkey and mini donkey along with my horse for six years now, I would like to share with you how sensitive and smart the donkey is. I am the voice for the donkey as they have no voice.

    Are you aware that donkeys are indeed smart, sensitive and a lovey equine?

    Are you aware the donkey never forgets anything and is very intelligent? Donkeys that are not abused are more like a black lab than a horse, they love their butt rubbed, hugs, kisses and kind words. Placing donkeys in this abusive and traumatic environment is abuse there is no other word for this than abuse this is not entertainment, this is abuse.

    Please consider the cry of these magnificent and highly social and intelligent donkeys to not abuse them for money. Donkeys are much different from the horse in the respect that when under deep stress they freeze and do not move. Cows will run out the shoot but donkeys freeze thus the need to use the cow shocker on them. These traumatized donkeys can have fatal consequences for a few minutes of Cowboy fun and the greed of money if they survive they will more than likely have permanent Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and not be able to fit into the human social world ever again.

    I am respectfully asking that you stop this event and do not use donkeys for this event.

Donkey roping is a cruel and completely unnecessary “sport.”

It has come to our attention via the poster shown that a donkey roping event is scheduled for May 25 and 26 in Welch, OK. We stopped ropings in Eden, TX and Van Horne, TX last year. Please send letters and call to get this one stopped too!

The information below will help you in writing an informed letter, and contact names and information are listed. Please keep your messages respectful as it will do a much better job of reaching people (in spite of how angry this makes us all).
