Does A Donkey Need A Hoof Trimmer?


Donkeys need their hooves to be trimmed just like a horse.

In the wild the donkey is walking up to 25 to 35 miles a day. On our farm the donkey is most likely not moving this much. A trimmer who is skilled in donkeys hooves is imperative to your domesticated donkeys health. It is best to keep your donkey(s) on a regular trimming schedule.

Select Donkey Whisperer Farm

Donkeys need the following:

  1. Shelter
  2. Clean water
  3. A dry paddock for most of their day.
  4. Lose clean salt in the shelter
  5. Hay to be tested to come in below 10% sugar.
  6. Never feed alfalfa, hay clippings or people foods, breads, cookies etc.,
  7. Never leave your desert equine the donkey on grass or brush, trees all day. They will get sick and have health problems.
  8. Fecal samples to test for parasites. No parasites no need to worm. Over worming has caused resistant free parasites in our donkey, mule and horse world. This is expensive to fix. Just like taking too many antibiotics in the human world over worming destroys the immune system and causes resistant free parasites.
  9. A vet check for dental and health at least once a year.
  10. Trimmer on a regular basis six weeks in the spring and summer and 7 in the fall and winter living in the Pacific Northwest.

Apples and Pears Are Ripe In Sequim, WA


Please never feed a horse, donkey or mule without asking the owner for permission. Allergies, health specific diet are real. You can cause laminitis, cushings, abscesses and obesity. Obesity can cause death in equine living in domestication.

What is Laminitis?

Radiograph of a horse hoof showing rotation of the coffin bone and evidence of sinking, a condition often associated with laminitis. The annotation P2 stands for the middle phalanx, or pastern bone, and P3 denotes the distal phalanx, or coffin bone. The yellow lines mark the distance between the top and bottom part of the coffin bone relative to the hoof wall, showing the distal (bottom) of the coffin bone is rotated away from the hoof wall.

Laminitis is a disease that affects the feet of ungulates, and is found mostly in horses and cattle. Clinical signs include foot tenderness progressing to inability to walk, increased digital pulses, and increased temperature in the hooves. Severe cases with outwardly visible clinical signs are known by the colloquial term founder, and progression of the disease may lead to perforation of the coffin bone through the sole of the hoof or being unable to stand up requiring euthanasia.

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.

What Happens When God Opens The Door To Our Dreams?


Seems life is all about waiting, praying, planning and then one day the door opens. Most of the time when we are waiting for a dream to appear we wait years. During this waiting period many things have changed in our personal life, our health, families, and emotions. Visualization is imperative to keeping the dream alive during the waiting period. We simply must keep the dream alive and trust GOD will open the door at the exact moment we are are ready. TRUST IS ESSENTIAL WHEN WAITING ON GOD. God wants us to have faith in him for each and every little thing we desire and need in this world. God knows what we can and cannot do. 

Faith in Action

1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

 

“Our minds, (BRAIN) emotions and body is most likely exhausted and yet this is when GOD opens the door to our Dream”

Why? This is exactly where GOD wants us to be. God wants us to need him in our life every moment, day, week and year.  God in Jesus Christ name has planted the seed of our dream in our brain and emotions. God created us to be courageous, we are his children, everything we do is for Gods Kingdom and glory.  This is called life. God has made us to shine our light bright to help the world. God uses this opportunity to help all of his children. Our stress makes us work harder to reach out and help others. Stress is a good thing in your life. 

Helping others is why GOD created us. Each of us has a unique ability and gift. Our world needs all of us to pay it forward and care. Stress will push you forward to do your best. Stress will give you courage to step out and ask for help and help others. Stress gives us direct access to our emotions, heart and mind. Stress gives us empathy and courage we may not have without it. 

The door opens and we must pray, wait and trust GOD to give us the funding, resources, people, skills, favor and and patience to not fail.

Stress Can Help You Grow! The key is to not stay stressed. Learn how to relax and enjoy each and every detail of your life. You will never get today back again.

 

GOD has prepared you for your dream

Never give up!

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

I AM NOT A HORSE “I AM A DONKEY”


I AM NOT A HORSE

Donkey’s don’t display pain or illness like horses or mules!

Donkeys are stoic and enduring. Know the signs of your donkey being in pain or ill. CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN.

1. Standing off alone away from his/her companions or herd.
2. Lying down more than normal.
3. Standing out in very cold weather refusing to come in.
4. Off food or water
5. Walking tenderly as if on hot coals.
6. Limping in any way.
7. Listless or withdrawn.
8. Shaking or shivering

Donkey’s don’t roll or thrash like horses when in pain or when they are suffering from colic. Donkey’s don’t tend to complain, they withdraw. Donkey’s hunker down and ride it out, sometimes to their peril. Please know the signs and save a donkey.

Thank you,

Thinking Of Donkeys as Donkeys Come In Two’s


Do you ever find yourself thinking about donkeys? We have had donkeys in our life for eleven years now and well it’s hard to remember life without a horse and a couple of donkeys, they are indeed part of our family.  

Why Donkeys? Perhaps GOD understood before I did the importance of donkeys in our life as our donkeys are part of our family now.  I have always been a human that likes to learn, digs for information, steps out of the box to try new things and I am naturally creative.   Thank you Jesus!  The human brain is indeed one of the most important organs GOD gave us.

Please send questions to our e-mail at info@donkeywhisperer.com we are happy to help you.

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY, HORSE OR MULE WHILE NOT IN ATTENDANCE TO AVOID SELF-MUTILATION OR DEATH.

Why are donkeys so special?   Donkeys have a cross on their back, this is special.

Well they are usually not always but usually more relaxed than the horse and well kinda like a black lab they just want to be loved on, they want to eat, they want to snuggle with their human.  The donkey loves to play tug with their four-legged donkey buddy.  Donkeys love to jump up and grab the neck of their donkey buddy.  Donkeys are donkeys!

Donkeys never forget anything they must be treated with a fair and respectful plan. Never abuse your donkey. Rehabilitation of an abused donkey can takes many, many years and some of these donkeys can become violent towards people they associate with the past abuse. I.e., a smell, man or woman (former abuser), truck, sounds, cigerette. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is real in animals just like people. Donkeys can see in color.

What Do Donkeys Need To Stay Healthy?

1. Clean water fresh water, diet, low sugar and low protein  hay  Never feed donkeys alfalfa hay ever. Hay must be tested to come in no higher than 10% Sugar to keep the exotic desert equine healthy. Exercise is key. 

2. TamingDonkeys need their hooves picked out daily and their feet trimmed at least every 7 weeks

3.  Donkeys need the vet to come and see them at least once a year

4.  Donkeys need their teeth checked at least once a year

5.  Donkeys need us humans to check for sores, lice, or a limp – Watch your donkey learn how they move so you can catch problems quickly

6.  Donkeys need clean fresh water every day and in the winter warm water, Donkeys need lose salt in a dry place. A salt lick will do but will not be as effective to prevent colic.

7. Donkeys need their human to be on time with meals – My donkeys hardly ever bray as they can depend on us to bring their meals, they do not need to remind us ever

8. It is a myth to believe all donkeys bray all day long they don’t bray unless they are calling out to a donkey or they are upset about meals or something else like a predator coming into their pasture. Jacks bray more. Very few jacks (stallion horse world) are worthy of reproduction. Owning a Jack is not for the beginner donkey owner or even the novice. Owning a Jack takes having people to help you manage your farm correctly it is not for the beginner.

9. Donkeys do not enjoy a bath, donkeys seem to not enjoy water even on the most warmest weather.  Our donkeys get one bath a year and I hand wash their face just like my horse, never spray a donkey with a hose in the face

10.  Donkeys ears can be broken and not stand up so be careful when touching them

11.  Donkeys can grow lot’s of thick donkey fur for the winter

 

Rio our Mammoth donkey age 9 months with my hubby Scott.

12.  Donkeys are looking for a great human leader who will take the time it takes, donkeys are visual learners

13. Donkeys can hear things way sooner than the horse

14. Pick up the poop every day and compost. Do not drag across your pasture until the poop has composted and killed parasites for at least one year.

15. Last but final tip about donkeys; never ever drill a donkey, less is more and remember Donkeys never forget anything – Be careful what and how you train your donkey 🙂 SELECT E-TRAINING DONKEY 101 VIDEO ON DEMAND. 

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