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 let the donkey see you watching the donkey get hurt or abused. Donkeys will think, and think until they find away around the unfair human.

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.

All domesticated donkeys, mules and horses need their hooves trimmed on a regular basis. Six weeks in the spring and summer. Seven weeks in the fall and winter. Toe pushed back, heel low but not too low and please do not dig out the sole. Depending on the part of the world you live in trimming is done different. I live in a green state, Washington, all eight equine are trimmed every six weeks in the spring and summer and seven in the fall and winter. Why? The hoof grows faster in the warmer seasons. If we do not pay attention to the diet of our the desert equine the donkey our donkey will get sick and can die. The diet for the desert equine the donkey is a dry paddock full-time, grazing time on lush grass is limited for exercise but never to eat 24 x 7. Hay must be tested to be 10% or lower in sugar/protein. Donkeys who are fed alfalfa hay, green grass, trees, brush all day and night will get sick. Here are a few things just a few that will happen; White line, seedy toe and lots of pain and suffering abscesses, insulin resistance and more.
Donkeys evolved in the desert. Never forget this. Feeding the desert equine takes having a plan and ensuring the donkey is getting exercise. Never starve a donkey. Clean water is a must. Salt is a must. A vet check once a year is imperative to your donkeys health. Teeth checked at least once a year. Fecal Samples for parasites. Never guess as over worming your donkey will create resistant free parasites worms. The donkey will get really sick and it is very expensive and difficult to cure.
Donkeys digest drugs different from a horse. Never give any drug to your donkey without an experienced donkey vet. Why? Donkeys die from drugs and there is no do over for the donkey. Make sure before you sedate your donkey your vet has the reversal drug and is trained in donkeys drug digestion.
Jacks, a jack is an intact donkey. Most donkeys are not breeding material. These donkeys must be gelded in order to have a forever home. Re-homing a jack is difficult. Jacks are not for the beginner donkey owner.
Jennies a female donkey. This donkey has estrus and will have mood swings. Simply understand this.
Geldings are Usually the easiest to train and care for. If the gelding is recently gelded understand testerone will take up to 6 or 8 months to leave the donkeys body. Next comes behavior modification this is all about you the owner learning how to be a fair leader and train the donkey.
