Apples and Pears Are Ripe In Sequim, WA


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

Apple Season has arrived! As great as they may be for humans this is not great for the domesticated Donkey, Mule or Horse. In fact this may cause DEATH from Colic and/or a huge amount of stress, tears, vet cost or even burying the beloved equine (Donkey, horse or mule).

Never feed grass clippings or bread to your horse, donkey or mule. PLEASE NEVER FEED ANOTHER ANY ANIMAL THAT IS NOT YOUR ANIMAL. Some animals have a form of insulin resistance, most must have a slow change of diet or they can founder, hoof rots out abscess or colic or worse die. 

Select grass clipping

Donkeys, Horses and Mules get Sick, belly aches and gas from eating too many apples! Eating too much human food can increase their risk for colic.boysballoons2015

This is one of the most important posts I can write. I will do my best to write it in a way to educate and not offend people as the equine (donkey, horse or mule) need us humans to learn. In fact their lives depend on it!

When you drive by a farm please do not make your hot rod scare the equine as they can and do run through a fence in fear. Not to mention the vet bill for falling down and possibly breaking a leg. Please do not throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, grass clippings, beer bottles or garbage over the fence at the farm animals. Legal Action will be taken if you cause harm to any farm.

Horses, donkeys and mules will die of colic if not treated quickly! Bread will get wrapped in their intestine and they can die.

Over feeding of sugar for the desert equine the donkey is a NO, NO. These donkeys are on strict diets or they should be in domestication as they evolved from the desert. Meaning they can’t eat tons of sugar products. They really need a diet of low sugar/protein hay, clean water, a buddy, no sugar vitamin and toys. Our hay is tested to come in at 7% sugar.

Our equine (donkeys and horses) have their teeth done, vet care, hoof care and eat a strict diet. In fact we cut their pasture down low so they really don’t get any nutrition out of our farm land.

Why? Our farm is not planted with the right hay for the easy keeper the donkey yet. One day we will plant and use our irrigation, not today.

 Please never stop and feed any equine (animal) anything without the permission of the owner.

Throwing apples or any food over the fence of an equestrian farm can cause death or a huge vet bill for the owners not to mention emotional stress, tears. Equine can die from colic!!!!!

If your equine live near any fruit tree keep them away from the tree. If your equine live near a road of city folks place signs, PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE Donkeys, Horses and video cameras. This will help.

We have video surveillance on the Donkey Whisperer Farm and signs stating DO NOT FEED THE HORSES AND DONKEYS and still I have to tell people not to feed my equine. This is a huge problem and one I think most people who do not own equine just do not understand. You think you are sharing love, in fact you could kill the sweet Donkey, Horse or Mule living near you.

Thank you for sharing and caring!
Rio Johnson the Mammoth donkey, our three mini donkeys and two rescue standard donkeys, two horses.

Now Is The Time To Make A Change


IMG_6635

If you want to do something go do it. Never be afraid of change, life is what we make of it. Will change be easy? No, but staying where you are is worse.

Trust Jesus to help you! Only you can change your life, only you.

Never give up, never!
