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).

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 throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, or garbage over the fence at the farm animals.

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 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!

The Bureau of Land Management is investigating the killing of a wild horse found dead from a gunshot wound in Millard County, Utah.

A $2,000 reward has been posted for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who fired a small-caliber bullet and killed the 14-year-old palomino stud.

Responding to a report from a local resident, BLM officers found the dead horse near Middle Pond in the Swasey Herd Management Area about 40 miles west of Delta. Volunteers last saw the animal alive July 5. The body was found July 7.

The area is on the eastern flank of the House Range, north of U.S. Highway 6. The herd is named for Swasey Peak, the range’s highest point.

Fanning the flames in the investigation is the well…

Twin Peaks wild horses & burros in danger: another large and fast moving wildfire

After the Twin Peaks HMA Rush Fire in 2012, this HMA is again under siege by another large wildfire.

by Grandma Gregg

Another large and out of control wildfire is raging in the Twin Peaks (NE California) HMA in northern California.  Many wild horses live in this Dodge Reservoir part of the HMA.  The fire has so-far consumed over 11,000 acres just since Monday afternoon.  The fire was caused by a BLM contractor.  The area has many fences and cross-fences and cattle guards. Most wild animals can go over or under a fence or go underground or fly away during a fire.  The wild horses and burros cannot.

If the BLM doesn’t open all the gates and drop a few fences in the path of the fire so the wild horses and burros can escape…

I am so in love with donkey’s at the moment, we have lots of babies on the forest, so I took my camera out and snapped away, so so cute, here is a sneaky peak of the cuteness.

But my painting was inspired by the donkey whisperer farm, who do some wonderful work, and have much larger donkey’s than the ones that graze the new forest ( not mine personally). Please check out their site, see link below.
