Select What Is The Weight Limit To Ride A Donkey

I deeply saddened to share that I can find no vet study that proves the weight limit for a donkey!

Donkeys must be of full age, have a chance to build muscle and should never carry more than 20% including the saddle and pad in my most humble opinion. Additionally donkeys should  carry a rider as a horse not on the rear, neck or shoulders but in the proper position as a horse is ridden.

“It is my dream to help educate and change how people treat these magnificent gifts from GOD the most over worked and under appreciated animal the Donkey.”  Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.

Sue Force holds Tessa ‘s 50th birthday cake

Believed to have been born in 1965, Tessa retired to The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon at 20 – around the age a donkey would normally be expected to live to.

She was born in the same year the Voting Rights Act was passed and The Beatles took America by storm.

But much like the world famous Liverpool band, her legacy lives on, because at 50 years of age, Tessa is thought to be Britain’s oldest donkey.

Friend


Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Real friends are rare, angels sent by GOD in Jesus Christ precious name. Remember if you have two really good friends this is rare indeed.  If you have two really good friends you are blessed beyond gold and riches.

Nothing tests a friendship like trauma, you find out real quick who your real friends are.

I have no idea how he knows when I need him.
We can go weeks without speaking,
and then, when my blue moods threaten to turn black,
he will show up and tell me my moods are:
azure,
indigo,
cerulean,
cobalt,
periwinkle–
and suddenly the blue will not seem so dark,
more like the color of a noon-bright sky.
He brings the sun.

— David Levithan, The Realm of Possibility


Notes:

The dynamic of friendship is almost always underestimated as a constant force in human life: a diminishing circle of friends is the first terrible diagnostic of a life in deep trouble: of overwork, of too much emphasis on a professional identity, of forgetting who will be there when our armored personalities run into the inevitable natural disasters…

Federal Court Dismisses Wyoming Welfare Rancher’s Anti-Wild Horse Lawsuit

“We are pleased that the Court declined to allow this blatant attempt by the State to scapegoat the small number of wild horses that remain in Wyoming to benefit ranchers.”

On Tuesday (4/21/15) The U.S. District Court in Wyoming dismissed a lawsuit filed by the State of Wyoming against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) seeking the removal of wild horses from public lands across the state. Earlier this year, the Court granted intervenor status to the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), The Cloud Foundation, Return to Freedom, and wild horse photographers Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl. Intervenors promptly filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against the BLM.

The Court stated in its decision that “the Court agrees with BLM and Intervenors. At this time there is…

Water For Wild Horses GOFUNDME

Select Water For Wild Horses

Drought in California has not spared the hundreds of horses at Return to Freedom.

In February 2015 our water table dropped and all wells stopped producing. We began trucking water in daily to fill the tanks – costing $466 a day / $3200 a week!

Return To Freedom provides refuge and care for almost 400 wild horses including 28 burros who have been captured from their ranges.

For 16 years RTF has a proven track record as a voice for change. Pioneering innovative management alternatives which have influenced a new direction for sanctuaries and solutions for keeping wild horses free on the range.

Return To Freedom has educated thousands of people a year through programs, volun-tourism both at the sanctuary , on America’s wilderness areas and through national outreach.

We need your help desperately now.

We have a small team who make sure the horses are fed and cared for each and every day. We want to thank our donors for keeping the troughs full- But we need your help to reach beyond our loyal donors. With many people giving alittle we can achieve alot!

With droughts, fuel cost increases and American hay growers selling to Asia, it is not only a challenge to raise the funds to keep up with the inflated hay costs, but now we need to raise funds to buy water – we just cannot do this without your help.

Please help us Fill the Bucket-

Return to Freedom’s Water for Wild Horses Fundraising Campaign will support our work with California Conservation Corps and Sierra Progressive as we move forward on matching grants to continue our water conservation plan at the sanctuary to:

– Increase water catchment
– Implement grey water systems
– Drill a horizontal well in a new location

We have had large holding tanks donated and have not been idle, but with no rain this winter we have to wait and see what water falls in 2016- and be prepared to catch it. In the meantime- we are hauling in 4300 gallons a day!

Please help the horses at Return To Freedom. They continue to serve to educate so many about the plight of wild horses. Each horse at the sanctuary has a story emblematic of tens of thousands more.

Return to Freedom is a 501C3 organization. All donations are sent weekly from Go Fund Me  directly  to Return to Freedom’s Water Fund.

Thank you and please share!
