The Olympic National Park is in our backyard. Hubby (Scott) and mehave child memories of the same places growing up in Washington State. The Olympics are a huge reason we live in Sequim, Washington. The hiking trails are maintained by mules and a few horses owned and cared for by the National Park Services.
Do not feed the mules and horses. All equine living in domestication are on a special diet. It is very important to never feed a horse, donkey, or mule without permission. Why? Colic is life threatening. Meaning; changing the diet can cause a serious life threatening issue. Please never feed any equine without permission.
Living the farm life is a blessing as farms are expensive to maintain, our world has become very expensive. The life of a farmer is amazingly difficult as each day something new is left at our feet. A farmer must pray, plan and let go. Nothing is more difficult than working for a year and having the weather destroy crops or livestock.
I teach the owner or caretaker worldwide how to care for the donkey and train and maintain the donkey. Everything we do or do not do will affect the health of our livestock emotionally, physically and mentally. Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm ® we work closely with our veterinarian and farrier to ensure our donkeys and horses are living in optimum health.
Our Life is in God’s hands, each day is fragile and precious for humans and animals.
When a donkey, horse or mule dies it is very important to let the rest of the herd smell and see the equine has passed. If we do not provide closure the animals will live in emotional distress crying and looking for their pasture buddy. Even when one of our dogs pass we let the other dogs say goodbye. Its only fair.
