Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Hi Melody,

I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.

The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)

Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.

I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.

Have an awesome weekend:)

Donkey Rope Halters With Matching Lead Lines, Brass Snap, leather end


miniropehalterbleu

Our new hand-made rope halters are a big hit!

Each and every halter, lead line is hand-made by our contractor in the U.S.A. out of the best quality material. Yacht rope for a nice fit that never hurts your hands or your donkeys. These are top of the line halter for your donkey.  The rope halter teaches much faster when they fit. Most halters fit a horse not a donkey or mule.

Purchase our halter with matching lead line and see the difference.

Our contractor works in the U.S.A. (has a small business like me) her material is 100% yacht rope, a brass screw on snap for  the lead line and a leather end. These halters are light and easy to attach and remove. Wash in a bucket of soapy water, never mold.

Sizes come in Donkey (Mini, Standard and Mammoth) we custom make horse and mule halter/lead lines along with the Mammoth donkey.

How can I order?

Select our store price includes, tax, packing and shipping.

Would you like a custom fit halter for your Donkey, Mule or Horse?

Select Mammoth donkey and let me know you want a custom fit halter for your mule or horse. Same price as Mammoth donkey. I will send you the chart how to measure and send to my contractor to hand make and custom fit for your mule and or horse.

Brass Snap attaches to the lead line and rope halter. Just leave it on in the barn for a quick attachment to your donkey, horse or mule. Please never leave any halter on your equine while not in attendance to avoid self-mutilation or worse death.

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.
