Baby Horse (Foal) Tied To A Donkey


Donkeys have been the beast of a burden far too long.  “Please when you see any form of neglect or abuse of donkeys speak up. Please become the voice for the donkey. Never fight with people educate and do what you can to help the donkey. Please never ever tie a donkey to another animal to train.”  Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.

Donkeys deserve only the best in life! 

Melody, Good morning!

We are looking into purchasing a necking donkey for our ranch. 

We breed, raise and show horses but, are getting to the age where we need help with those young foals that get weaned from mothers and need to learn to lead away from mother, respect, etc. and would like to develop a more gentle approach to getting results, not to mention our bodies are getting where handling the young is tough and we pay for it many days after.  Do you know of anyone who specializes in training donkeys for that purpose?  Tanya

Tanya, I do not sell donkeys. I do not agree with using a donkey to train a young horse. I personally would never do this to any donkey or the foal. Since you more than likely will do this to a donkey here is my advice;  Use a surcingle on the donkey, not a halter on the head or a rope around the neck. I would never ever leave the donkey connected to a foal for longer than 1/2 an hour. I would never ever leave these two unattended.

Donkeys are not stubborn donkeys are intelligent. Depending on the donkey you get this may or may not work. Donkeys grab the neck of another donkey or another animal in play and in battle. Extroverted donkeys will not always stand still and freeze when scared they will fight back. Introverted donkeys will lay down and not get up when terrified or stressed. Sadly, one person says this works and everyone jumps on thinking it is less work for the breeder of horses.

Donkeys need their diet to be tested forage hay 10% or lower in sugar and protein. Donkeys need the farrier on a regular schedule, shots, and teeth just like a horse.

What’s Behind The Barn Door


Farm life is the best life! I love our farm, and all of the animals but let me be clear this is not the life for all humans. Our farm animals require twenty-four-seven care, seven days a week no exception.

Our farm is growing low sugar & protein hay and boy does this require some work. My husband Scott is a seriously physically fit middle-aged man, he is constantly lifting heavy items for the farm, moving hand lines, building fences, lifting heavy bales of hay. Did I tell you farming is hard work?

Farms Require Work!

* Farmers work full-time seven days a week, twelve moths out of the year.

*Farmers must have another full-time job to keep the farm alive.

*Farmers do not take vacations very often.

*Farmers must have passion for the farm and the animals.

*Farmers use their personal resources as its difficult to pay someone to run the farm.

*Farmers work in hot, cold, wet, windy, mudy and freezing weather all hours of the day.

*Farmers pray! Farmers pray for sunshine, rain, wind, and for favor to keep the farm running.

*Farms with animals require the farmer to provide food, water, shelter, fences, vet care, and basic husbandry of boring choirs such as picking up poop and composting at least 2 times a day. Picking poop out of the hooves at least three times a week for donkeys, mules and horses, no hoof, no equine.

*Farms require the owner to work full-time with very few breaks or trips away from the farm.

If you can agree to all of the issues above, hurry and get your farm up and running! Congratulations you are indeed a rare human, you are a hard worker and you are a farmer.

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

Steam Hay For A Healthier Horse, Mule and Donkey


Did you know?

  • Even the best quality hay can be full of dirt, dust, mold, and bacteria.
  • Read all about Hay Steamers here.

The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® has two equine suffering from allergies. Our palomino horse Miss Lily and Rio our Mammoth donkey. Allergies are very real for humans and animals. For our equine, this can cause breathing issues and running eyes, itching so bad the face bleeds on the nose and around the eyes, coughing, and hives. Remember to always ask your vet for support with allergies. Our Mammoth donkey takes the dog pill Apquel and this helps 100% of his allergies, we give this to him at night as it makes him drowsy.

The sad part is a hay steamer is expensive. Perhaps one-day hay steamers will be a bit more reasonably priced for all equine to enjoy the benefits.

Thank you for reading my blog,

Fireworks Your Animals Need You To Have A Plan


Fireworks and Pets Not A Good Combination:

Plan ahead to keep pets safe; owning pets is a huge responsibility and for those of us who have equine (donkeys, horses, and mules) living in rural areas, we must be extra careful. The equine is a flight or fight animal when terrified of death. Meaning; they can get scared when the fireworks start, and the smell is in the air.  Some horses have been known to run into fences.  Locking them in their stalls is the safest when neighbors are shooting off fireworks I turn the radio up and give lots of hay and fresh water. Donkeys have died from fear, yes fear. Colic is a life-threatening matter. Donkeys are stoic will not show pain until it is too late. Do your best to stay calm and keep your donkeys, mules, and horses locked up safe in their stall until the fireworks are over. Long-distance fireworks are not that big of a deal, fireworks right over the farm or barn can kill your equine.

Want to read more tips on pet safety and fireworks?  Select Blue Cross Pets Fireworks for more details.

Dogs and cats can get so scared of fireworks they can run off and not be able to find their way home best to keep them locked in the house too. Our doggies get very stressed, turning the radio up helps, some people tranquillize their dogs until the fireworks are over.  I say do whatever you have to do to keep your pets safe as they don’t understand fireworks.  Please remember animals do not understand fireworks “they are truly scared and think they will die.” It’s our job as the smart human to protect them and take care of them.

What do you do to keep your pet(s) safe during the fireworks?  Please leave a comment to help others.
