Do You Know What Plants Are Poisonous For Your Horse, Donkey or Mule?


OLD POST – 2012

Owning a small farm is a dream come true as I had been praying to GOD to own a horse again since I was a teenager, GOD answered my prayers in my late forties.  I am here to say “Nothing is impossible with GOD in Jesus Christ precious name” living on a  farm is indeed a gift from GOD and I am forever grateful for GOD’s favor and blessings. It is my pleasure to share information and a few photos with you. Enjoy!

Watching our beloved equine do one of their most favorite things, graze and munch away on good clean low sugar hay is a wonderful thing, it is truly a blessing.   For me listening to them chomp away on safe low sugar hay has a similar relaxation feeling as listening to the ocean as it calms my soul.   The farm girl is forever deep instilled in my soul, thank you Jesus.

 Here are a few links for Western Washing toxic plants:

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).

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

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 make your hot rod scare the equine as they can and do run through a fence in fear. Not to mention the vet bill for falling down and possibly breaking a leg. Please do not throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, grass clippings, beer bottles or garbage over the fence at the farm animals. Legal Action will be taken if you cause harm to any farm.

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.

IMG_20150506_094435

 Please never stop and feed any equine (animal) 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.

IMG_4811

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!
Rio Johnson the Mammoth donkey, our three mini donkeys and two rescue standard donkeys, two horses.

Warning Dog Panting


wp-1455713805854.jpg

 

Select Excessive Panting 

Excessive Panting And Drooling Can Be A Life-Threatening Sign That You Shouldn’t Ignore. Read More!

Dogs do not have the ability to sweat all over their bodies like we do. They only sweat on areas that are not covered in fur, such as their paw pads and their noses. Because of this, they rely on panting to cool down in hot temperatures. It’s a fairly poor cooling system, which means we need to be aware of the warning signs of overheating so that we can care for our pups properly.

We have all heard the horror stories of dogs being left in hot cars, and suffering from heatstroke or death after only a few minutes. Heatstroke can occur from a number of different sources. Overexertion in hot temperatures, being left in a hot car, and walking on hot pavement are all bad ideas for your dog.

A dog’s normal temperature is 101.5 degrees.  A degree up or down is a normal fluctuation, but anything more than that in either direction is a cause for concern. It doesn’t take long for a dog to overheat. As little as 10 minutes inside a parked car can be deadly to some dogs. Be aware of the signs of overheating so that you can react appropriately!
