They Have Hooves Not Feet – Diabetes humans vs Laminitis Equine


Please take a look at our website http://www.donkeywhisperer.com

Select paddock paradise to learn how to build a dry paddock.

Howdy,

Warning these photos may be too graphic as they show what happens to the feet of the human who has severe diabetes.

Here is an article explaining why diabetes in the human can cause serious feet problems.  We must never forget that over feeding or too much sugar in the equine (horse, donkey and mule) creates the same problem.   The only difference is they have hooves not feet. 

If you cannot keep your obese equine off pasture try a grazing muzzle I personally know people who have successfully used this tool to save their horses life. Keeping our equine on a healthy diet, low sugar hay, micro managing their weight to stop them from becoming obese is essential to optimum health and in many cases it is the difference between life and death of the equine.

Exercise, low sugar…

Salt For Donkeys, Horses and Mules – Loose is better


 Most donkey, horse and mule owners may not think about salt.  Did you know that salt blocks were actually designed for cattle?  Cows have rough tongues that can easily lick the block.  A block of salt is better than nothing at all. The best is loose (granular) salt.

Donkeys, mules and horses have smoother tongues than a cow and may not actually get their needed amount of salt from a block.  They may end up biting the block in an attempt to get more, which can lead to teeth and jaw or tooth problems.  The equine suffering from salt- deficient may lick or chew on objects or may actually lick or eat dirt.

No worries about equine over consuming lose salt. Simply place in a separate container in the shelter or give a little at night. Your choice.

Please Do Not Hit A Donkey


PLEASE DON’T HIT ME

If hitting a donkey (or any animal for that matter) produced positive results there would be very few naughty or dangerous donkeys. Hitting does NOT work, in fact, hitting your donkey only makes EVERYTHING worse and you, the human, lose every time!!

Hitting a donkey creates a huge disconnect between you and the donkey. The donkey simply moves into a deeper state of indifference, distrust and resentment. And take our word for it, donkeys will remember if you have been cruel, unfair or a poor leader.

We have never met a donkey that was inherently mean and hateful! Donkeys that are simply naughty are usually frustrated that they are not being heard. Donkeys are continuously communicating with us and telling us how they feel, what matter s to them and what they are fearful of. Donkeys will always give us a warning, the question is are WE listening?

Donkeys that bite, kick or strike are in psychological pain, physical pain or a state of heightened fear. They don’t need a ‘strong hand’ or a ‘good whipping’ they need a human that understands herd mentality, donkey psychology and knows how to listen, be patient and is a confident leader.

Even in severe cases of being kicked or bitten always walk away! Don’t escalate the situation by striking back. If you react by hitting or kicking your donkey you are the only one that is going to get hurt (we have seen people break their hands and their toes). Regroup and make a plan. Don’t go back to your donkey until YOU understand donkey psychology, how to build mutual respect and the basics of natural, non-resistant horsemanship (donkeymanship).

The bottom line is: Learn, become a good leader and watch your donkey respond with respect and a willingness to please you.

Stay ON DONKEY TIME. Never drill, learn how to read your donkeys behavior. Check out our donkey rope halter/lead lines and Donkey 101 video on demand. Donkey 102 will be released summer of 2017.
