Thinking Of Donkeys as Donkeys Come In Two’s


Do you ever find yourself thinking about donkeys? We have had donkeys in our life for eleven years now and well it’s hard to remember life without a horse and a couple of donkeys, they are indeed part of our family.  

Why Donkeys? Perhaps GOD understood before I did the importance of donkeys in our life as our donkeys are part of our family now.  I have always been a human that likes to learn, digs for information, steps out of the box to try new things and I am naturally creative.   Thank you Jesus!  The human brain is indeed one of the most important organs GOD gave us.

We are proud to make and sell the best quality and fit donkey rope halters. Each donkey halter is made in the U.S.A. Donkey soft yacht rope halter, lead lines with a brass snap, leather end. Check us out at our store Select Our Store.  

Our Mini and Standard size rope halter will fit from age 4 months to full-grown.

Custom/special orders 

You will order the halter and let us know you want to measure the head. We will build you a perfect fitting donkey halter made to last a lifetime.

Please send questions to our e-mail at info@donkeywhisperer.com we are happy to help you.

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY, HORSE OR MULE WHILE NOT IN ATTENDANCE TO AVOID SELF-MUTILATION OR DEATH.

Why are donkeys so special?   Donkeys have a cross on their back, this is special.

Well they are usually not always but usually more relaxed than the horse and well kinda like a black lab they just want to be loved on, they want to eat, they want to snuggle with their human.  The donkey loves to play tug with their four-legged donkey buddy.  Donkeys love to jump up and grab the neck of their donkey buddy.  Donkeys are donkeys!

Donkeys never forget anything they must be treated with a fair and respectful plan. Never abuse your donkey. Rehabilitation of an abused donkey can takes many, many years and some of these donkeys can become violent towards people they associate with the past abuse. I.e., a smell, man or woman (former abuser), truck, sounds, cigerette. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is real in animals just like people. Donkeys can see in color.

What Do Donkeys Need To Stay Healthy?

1. Clean water fresh water, diet, low sugar and low protein  hay  Never feed donkeys alfalfa hay ever. Hay must be tested to come in no higher than 10% Sugar to keep the exotic desert equine healthy. Exercise is key. 

2. TamingDonkeys need their hooves picked out daily and their feet trimmed at least every 7 weeks

3.  Donkeys need the vet to come and see them at least once a year

4.  Donkeys need their teeth checked at least once a year

5.  Donkeys need us humans to check for sores, lice, or a limp – Watch your donkey learn how they move so you can catch problems quickly

6.  Donkeys need clean fresh water every day and in the winter warm water, Donkeys need lose salt in a dry place. A salt lick will do but will not be as effective to prevent colic.

7. Donkeys need their human to be on time with meals – My donkeys hardly ever bray as they can depend on us to bring their meals, they do not need to remind us ever

8. It is a myth to believe all donkeys bray all day long they don’t bray unless they are calling out to a donkey or they are upset about meals or something else like a predator coming into their pasture. Jacks bray more. Very few jacks (stallion horse world) are worthy of reproduction. Owning a Jack is not for the beginner donkey owner or even the novice. Owning a Jack takes having people to help you manage your farm correctly it is not for the beginner.

9. Donkeys do not enjoy a bath, donkeys seem to not enjoy water even on the most warmest weather.  Our donkeys get one bath a year and I hand wash their face just like my horse, never spray a donkey with a hose in the face

10.  Donkeys ears can be broken and not stand up so be careful when touching them

11.  Donkeys can grow lot’s of thick donkey fur for the winter

 

Rio our Mammoth donkey age 9 months with my hubby Scott.

12.  Donkeys are looking for a great human leader who will take the time it takes, donkeys are visual learners

13. Donkeys can hear things way sooner than the horse

14. Pick up the poop every day and compost. Do not drag across your pasture until the poop has composted and killed parasites for at least one year.

15. Last but final tip about donkeys; never ever drill a donkey, less is more and remember Donkeys never forget anything – Be careful what and how you train your donkey 🙂 SELECT E-TRAINING DONKEY 101 VIDEO ON DEMAND. 

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

Lost In Translation


LOST IN TRANSLATION

I spent several years as an assistant to a trainer at an upscale Rocky Mountain Gaited Horse ranch where we bred, trained and showed over 30 horses. I watched trainers come and trainers go and the reason was always the same: the trainer could not teach what she/he was training to the owner. The trainer would forge an amazing connection and bond to the horse, but this bond, this mutual respect, this communication could not be transferred to the owner. When the owner would interact with the horse the horse was confused, the owner perplexed and soon the trainer fired. Why? The owner expected the horse to respond to him/her like the horse responded to the trainer. This simply never happened. I witnessed this ‘disconnect’ over and over again. Something was lost in translation.

Now donkeys. After 12 years at a donkey ranch I witnessed the same phenomena. Trainers came and trainers went. We even sent our donkeys to trainers off site. Each time I witnessed the donkey join up with the trainer, learn the trainers language, intuit the trainers every move; they were like a fine tuned instrument together. Finally the donkey returned home. The owner entered the scene and everything fell apart. Why wouldn’t the donkey respond to the owner? Why wouldn’t the donkey behave and perform for the owner like he/she did for the trainer? The trainer revealed some of his/her secrets, why couldn’t the owner apply the techniques, why couldn’t the owner speak the language?

It is my personal experience that only owners should be training their equine. Only YOU should be training your donkey! So, what does this mean? In today’s world of technology this is actually good news. With the internet, Skype, Facetime and YouTube there are infinite possibilities for you to learn to train your donkey. If you can obtain a college degree online, email our doctor and learn to play an instrument online, well, you can certainly learn to train our donkey through virtual resources.

So, where to go?

Donkey Whisperer Farm has been on the cutting edge training you the owner to train your donkey. Trainer Melody Johnson offers a basic training course through the Donkey 101 Video Series and does personal one-on-one training sessions through Skype. She teaches you ‘donkey language’, she teaches you how to translate and communicate with your donkey. She teaches you how to join up and energetically bond with your donkey. She teaches you how to send clear messages verbally and with your body language. She trains you to train your donkey basic manners and skills.

When YOU train your donkey there is no middleman. There is no disconnect, there is no confusion, there is no language barrier. When you train your donkey you forge a lifetime bond and commitment and nothing is lost in translation.
