My fellow horse enthusiasts probably cringed a bit at the title of this post. For those of you who are wondering why horse people hate small birds, here is a little explanation:

Thrush (the medical condition) is a fairly prevalent hoof problem caused by anaerobic bacteria. On the bottom of a horse’s hoof is the frog, a soft, v-shaped structure. Bacteria, most commonly Fusobacterium necrophorum, make their home in the crevices surrounding the frog and go to town. (For my fellow science junkies, those grooves are known as the medial and lateral sulci. Drop that at the breakfast table.) Just as the name “necrophorumimplies, these bacteria cause tissue death. Compacted dirt and poop stuck in the horse’s hooves provide the perfect oxygen-free environment for the bacteria to start eating healthy hoof tissue. If detected early (your nose will definitely tell you), this condition is fairly easy…

Happy 10th Birthday Miss Lily


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

LILY FOAL

Wow I find it so hard to believe that today my horse Miss Lily a double registered quarter horse and Palomino is ten years old. Here is a look into the life of one amazing horse. I call Miss Lily Mr. Ed’s wife (the talking horse) as she is this smart. :)

For those of you who love horses, donkeys and mules to you I write this. “Nothing is better than the love I have for my horses and donkeys. They are angels from GOD sent to me, to make me stronger, a better person, a better wife, mother, and a better teacher.”

This mare, Miss Lily has been living with me since she was twenty months old. She captured my heart the very first time I met her. I love this horse dearly and believe me she is never for sale ever. Along with all of my six donkeys and Miss Trophy my new project horse as they are in their forever homes.

The love of any animal for a human is special. Domesticated animals depend on their owner to provide all of their every day needs, picking up poop, feeding, clean water, shots as needed, dental care, hoof care and most of all love and patience as their way is not always ours but they are truly the window a mirror to our inner self. To get the opportunity to train your own horse, mule or donkey will change you life in every way. Confidence is a big deal in this world, goals are important, working with a 1000 pound equine will forever change your life. Never forget if you get the chance to grab a dream go get it as life is fragile and precious.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Donkeys Living In The Pacific Northwest – Rain, Sores and Self Mutilation


Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Spring can bring sores, treat fast and avoid a big vet bill. If this treatment does not work; please ask your vet to run tests to see what kind of skin infection you donkey has.

Howdy,

Last spring after record amounts of rain in the Pacific Northwest our little mini donkey “Rocket Man” came up with a huge open sore on his little donkey boy face.  “Our equine are talked to and touched visually checked at least once a day” the big sore on his face came on fast within twelve hours.   It was a huge sore and left me perplexed but luckily the home remedy was an easy fix just took some doctoring for about a week and then his donkey fur started growing again.  Please make sure to check your horse, donkey or mule at least once a day to keep them in optimum health.

Donkeys seem to have more of a problem with this I think due to their ability to grow enough fur to live in Alaska during the winter

I have seen these open sores on the…

A DONKEY STORY

A DONKEY STORY

Maximuspinchipssept2014 royboy2014decnewtofarmage4 Rocketmamcloseupcarrotsage2020134

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Did you know donkeys evolved from the desert? Donkeys can’t eat rich feed? Donkeys will abscess, founder and get laminitis from alfalfa or too much green grass, people food human deserts, and giving grain when not working hard?

Yes it’s true the donkey is a very special equine as GOD created the donkey to live on very little protein and sugar. So please do your research before feeding and caring for you donkey. If you do this your donkey will live a long life of thirty to fifty years. Yes donkeys need to be in our will like a parrot.

Select A Donkey Story

If you need help understanding diet, hoof care and how to keep your donkey healthy emotionally ad physically I am now accepting new students. I train worldwide via Skype and your videos, my homework. Select our store to see my business, please read my testimonials. All your lessons are banked as I am training you the owner to train your donkey I am not training the donkey. Each customer I work with is unique and has a personality and so does the donkeys. One size does not fit all when training a donkey, horse or mule.

Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker


Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Birds are another one of my favorite things to study. Here is a new blog I am following enjoy!

We followed this guy around in very dark pine forest while on a hike in Yellowstone National Park for quite some time before he finally settled down for a little break. Luckily he chose a spot where just enough light was getting in through the trees to get a somewhat decent photograph of this wonderful looking bird. It was the first time we had seen a Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker and hopefully not the last.

Happy Friday.
