Donkey Health Tip – MUD


 

Here Comes The Rain
 
If your donkey is laying in mud be sure to get the mud off when it drys. Why? Mud has the potential to give sores to equine. The best way to remove the dirt and mud is a brush in the winter. Be gentle around the eyes and ears. We place sawdust down in the high traffic areas and a place to sleep outside. 
 
 
How nice would it be if I was able to come to your farm and train you how to train your donkey? Please take a look at Donkey 101 & Donkey 102. I train the owner or caretaker how to not only train the donkey for basic social skills. Learn how to stop the bolt, kick and bite. Prepare for the farrier and more.

Donkeys Are Stoic Will Not Show Pain Until It Is Too Late


Donkeys on the whole do not show their feelings of pain in very obvious ways, but behave as a human would who is called ‘stoical’, i.e. tolerating pain without complaint. They may make an initial violent movement of avoidance, but after that they become silent and as nearly as possible immobile in the face of pain and/or fear.

Therefore it is sometimes difficult to know when they are suffering acutely, and their behavior may look like ‘stubbornness’ rather than stoicism.

One indicator of pain or fear can be diarrhea, just as in humans. Since this may also dehydrate the donkey, it will be adding to its problems if it persists. A donkey who stops eating and drinking is at risk for death.

Please call the vet ASAP to save your donkeys life.

Apples and Pears Are Ripe In Sequim, WA


Please do not feed farm animals without permission. Our donkeys and horses are on a serious diet.

Sadly most people just do not understand throwing apples, pears, bread, grass clippings can make the equine sick and yes even kill the equine. Colic, founder, cushings, laminitis, insulin resistance, abscesses, rotting hooves are all part of over eating and or eating the wrong diet in domestication.

Education creates awareness and awareness will save a life!

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

GOD Plants A Dream


God planted a dream in my mind in 2010 after surviving a semi truck accident I live each day in pain and I am physically disabled. I am not dead. I still have purpose and value in this great big world. Never give up. Select GOD Created A Miracle For Me.  

Present day my husband Scott and I are living this dream. Dreams do come true. We lived in our 5th wheel while we built the farm and our home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Washington.  I train the owner or caretaker worldwide how to train and care for the donkey using resistance free methods, endorphins and timing I call this the three second rule. Most importantly I teach my students how to have a plan and stay ON DONKEY TIME ®. Stop before the donkey stops. Learn how to be a fair leader with a plan and never drill or hurt the donkey.

Every day I look out our window into GOD’s world, GOD’s window of life. I am so grateful for this land that GOD brought to us and I jump for joy each and every day to share with you to never give up on a dream GOD plants. This is real it really happened and it can happen to you if you trust Jesus. I see mountains, donkeys, horses and more.   Dreams do come true but they take hard work and faith that GOD has a plan and his plan may or may not be fast. GOD knows what is best for his children as he created each one of us, he planted the dream in us, our choice is to have faith and step out or stay safe and never try. I choose to die with my boots on. How about you?
