Donkey Hoof Abscess Video


Donkey Whisperer Farm Blog

A MUST HAVE VIDEO!

We are proud to announce our new Donkey Whisperer Farm ‘Donkey Hoof Abscess’ Video!

Here at Donkey Whisperer Farm we get more inquiries about hoof abscesses in donkeys than any other healthcare issue. Due to this common, but dreadful hoof ailment, we have decided to share our personal experience here at the farm with you through our new Donkey Healthcare Video ‘Donkey Hoof Abscesses’.

Select http://donkeywhisperer.com/healthcarevideoseries.htm

We have over 12 years experience treating mild to life threatening abscesses in donkeys with veterinarian guidance, as well as alone in the field. Over the years Donkey Whisperer Farm has developed a strict and successful protocol for preventing, treating and overcoming hoof abscesses.

It is vital that every donkey owner and caretaker understand that hoof abscesses in donkeys can be fatal and should not be considered a routine health problem.

Training A Donkey, Horse or Mule

I have rehabilitated donkeys, horses, mules and dogs. I understand the animals and how pain is a horrific way to teach any animal or human. 

How do I do this?

First I must build a relationship with the animal, tame the animal. Prove I am a leader without abuse. I have techniques to stay safe. Abuse is never needed to train.

The brain cannot learn under stress. Please remember old school training uses pain. Pain will cause you more problems down the road with equine. Please do not use this old cowboy training. People and animals learn when they are safe and calm. Not when under fear and pain.

Donkeys and some mules not all will never forget anything you teach them. A new person they will pretend to know nothing. Interesting.

Please learn how to train another way. I am excited to teach you natural training. Fair leadership, you will be the leader and you will be safe. Never train the day the trimmer comes preparation is done before the trimmer or vet comes.

If you want to learn how to train a horse, donkey or mule you must learn how to control your emotions. Match the energy of the equine, have empathy and learn how to be plugged in 100% to your equine when you are with them. Release energy and wait for the equine to learn.

Signs of Relaxation

Lick lips, blow out, cock a foot. These are signs of relaxation. Always end your Short training session on a good note. Never drill a donkey, horse or mule.

RIO&MELODYM

Signs of stress,
Diarrhea water blowing out not just poop. Head high, tale tucked, or high. Back sunk in. Equine (introvert will lay down or not move the feet, they will not hear you eyes are glassed over). Extroverts will do anything to get away from the stressful situation including run over you.

Learning starts the minute we release! Get your timing down and stay ON DONKEY TIME. Life is relaxed and we are never in a hurry.

Preparation is the key to success in anything we do. Never drill any equine (horse, donkey or mule). Short training sessions that are quality will work the best and wait another day. End all training sessions with something the equine knows how to do. 🙂

Have a great day and remember your donkey, horse or mule is not a vehicle. They have personalities, emotions, fears and a past in most cases.

Never Clip The Whiskers Off A Horse, Donkey or Mule


whiskers-684x454

In the midst of the marshmallow-soft skin are scattered, course hairs, called vibrissae, or tactile hairs. These whiskers are a result of millions of years of evolution to help horses sense their environment.whiskersssss

They’re HAIRS, not sensory organs. If they were truly connected to nerve endings, it would be painful to cut them.

They’re used much like a cat’s whiskers for spacial placing, but it’s simply not true it hurts, makes horses eat toxic plants, or causes mental distress to cut them off.

Cutting those hairs can lead to injuries as a result of horses failing to avoid obstacles near their faces. Because horse’s eyes are set on the side of their heads. they have a blind spot in front of and right under their noses. So, their whiskers act as a sort of “third eye” helping them to negotiate objects close to their noses, such as food, water and the ground, avoiding injury and making sure they don’t eat the wrong thing.

For example we sometimes have some small rocks in the alfalfa hay we feed, and when the horses are done eating every single leaf of hay is gone, but the rocks remain.

Now that you know why some European countries have banned whisker clipping, do you think it should happen here, too?

Select Why We Should Not Clip The Whiskers

Select Body Clipping Donkeys

Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm we do not show, we let our donkeys lose their beautiful fur coat when they are ready. I give each of my donkeys a crew cut and that’s it. I wait until we are in the 60’s in the Pacific Northwest, WA.

Please understand if you trim to soon and it is cold your donkey will need blankets, and the insects will make them bleed. The donkey is very smart, we choose to let them loose their fur coat when ready. We never trim the whiskers ever on our donkeys or horses.

Looking For A Trainer For Your Horse, Donkey or Mule?


I am a worldwide virtual coach for you the owner!  I look forward to meeting you and training you to train your equine from the comfort of your home. The best person to train is the owner who feeds, cares and spends time with their beloved equine. Please don’t send your equine off to a trainer as the equine learns best from the human they have a deep relationship with, if you send off to a trainer you still need to learn how to train and build a relationship. 

I  teach you from your computer to my computer anywhere in the world. Skype makes it possible for you the student to sit in the comfort of your home, take notes, and I give you detailed homework for you to train your equine. Get comfortable a nice cup of coffee, tea and prepare to learn you have hired me to coach you and teach you to train.  I am also a consultant to tell you whatever you need help in and around your farm; fencing, health, diet, and more.

Select Donkey Whisperer Training

royhappyage42014summer

Do you find yourself wishing you could train your donkey, horse or mule to do the most basic of domesticated socialized things such as;

Come running to you when called

Stop when you tell them to, walk-on when you ask

Stand still for the trimmer or vet

Send into the stall and turn around and face you

Send into the horse trailer and back out calmly

I offer one, five or ten lessons Select Our Store (KEYBANK virtual merchant) you can pay with any major credit card and not worry as I pay a fee to Kebank to keep this site secure. If you are still worried you can purchase a disposable credit card at Wallmart and use this for the class cost. I am working on creating 1 hour group classes via Skype for 2015. Stay tuned, cost will be $45.00, no  more than 10 students at time. Having one-on-one lessons is a much easier way to learn so I would encourage you to use this opportunity to make 2015 the year you become the Donkey Whisperer for your farm. I train you to train your donkey, horse or mule using resistance free methods no old cowboy abuse here ever. Safety is my number one concern for you and your equine.

Driving Down The Road With A Donkey, Horse Or Mule


horsetraileraccident

 

Not my accident…. Please drive careful when following a horse trailer or just driving.

This is not my photo of the trailer accident, I could have not written this any better.  Melody, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

Dear Drivers,

My most valued possession is inside the trailer behind my vehicle. She stepped into that rolling steel box because I asked her to and she trusts me. She’s a living, breathing creature, and all 500kg of her are precariously balanced on four tiny hooves as my vehicle and trailer wind down the road.

My horse is not a boat or camp trailer, and I cannot stop quickly or turn sharply without risking her safety and even her life.

Know that I will do just about anything to avoid hitting the brakes with a horse in my trailer. However, if your Suburban is hidden in the blind spot behind my horse trailer and I do have to stop suddenly, you’re too close to stop without ending up in the trailer with my horse.

When I make those excruciatingly slow, wide turns, I need them to prevent my horse from potentially falling over and injuring herself. Please give me room and time to turn.

And that large distance between me and the car in front of me? It might look like enough room to fit three sedans bumper to bumper, but it’s actually the distance I need to stop softly and safely without my horse falling.

Those times when we’re headed up a hill, my speed is as fast as I can go. My foot has the accelerator pressed to the floor, and no matter how hard you try, your WRX can’t push us up this hill. I promise I’ll move to the left lane when it becomes available or pull over if I find a safe spot on the shoulder, but until then I ask for your patience and some space.

Lastly, my set up weighs 3 tons, and that much weight prevents me from swerving. When you pass me going 100kmph uphill on a blind corner, you don’t just put my horse at risk: Your driving threatens the lives of the oncoming driver, my passenger, me, you, and everyone in the cars behind us.

So next time you see a horse trailer, assume an animal’s in there. Please give the them some space and offer some patience. By driving safely, we’ll all get where we’re going.

These photos show you what happens when a horse trailer driver is forced to attempt to stop suddenly or swerve sharply and suddenly.

Thank you,
Horse, Donkey and Mule Owner

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