Donkey Basketball Is Wrong – Why Do People Laugh?


Why Do People Find The Need To Laugh At The Donkey?

I am a world-wide virtual trainer to the owner of donkeys. This is what I do for a living help the owner (human) learn how to train the donkey anyplace in the world from the comfort of their home. Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm we have one Mammoth donkey, two standard donkeys, three mini donkeys and two horses. Did you know I can ride my Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson, 16’2 with no bit, no spurs? Rio is like a big dog!

I am the voice for the most humble and smartest equine the donkey.  God created the donkey to be smart and humble, not stubborn. People who abuse the donkey make the donkey stubborn out of self-preservation.

Donkeys never forget a thing.  Trying to fix abuse of;

Riding in the wrong position

Weighing too much for the donkey to carry

Dragging the donkey by the face when the donkey is smart enough to walk next to the human when not scared to death

Withholding food and water before a game

Making the donkey buck, fall down and learning to kick out at the human is very difficult to repair.  Trust is easy to destroy and in some cases can never be earned again with a donkey.

Why? Donkeys are smart. Donkeys think all of the time unlike the prey equine the horse.

The Donkey Is Laughed At For Being A Donkey!

Seriously, people drive past our farm and he-haw and laugh at our donkeys all of the time. I really have no understanding of why people are so seriously biased against one of the most humble sweet animals GOD created?

I wonder when you watch this donkey basketball game does it look like the Donkeys are enjoying themselves?

Most Donkey Basketball events are for fundraising at public schools. I find it hard to believe that with all the bullying going on today via social media and in person a school would want students to mis-treat the humble donkey. I guess bullying is funny as long as it is against the most humble donkey.

Advocates of Donkeybasketball;

  1.  The donkey is well fed, so much better than most donkeys in our world! Really?

2.   The donkey is not going to slaughter. Well after the donkey basketball company is done they will not be able to adjust to social skills needed in our world. No doubt  slaughter is next.

3.  The donkey has vet, dental and hoof care on a regular basis, shelter and food.

Diet is outstanding, what more could a donkey ask for?

As the voice of the donkey I can clearly tell you what the donkey would ask for:

  1. Treat me with respect and dignity, do not let people pull on my face and have me in a loud noise situation, I do not like chaos
  2. Weight limits apply to donkeys as they do horses
  3. Ride us in the correct place not on the neck, rear etc, the same as a horse
  4. When we are kicking and running away it means we are not having fun!
  5. When we lay down we are scared to death or we will not move our feet. This does not mean we are stubborn.

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!

After An Almost Fatal Car Accident – What Comes Next?


 

I try really hard to not be a victim, not be a whiner, not be a person who cries on my blog about the pain and suffering I endure daily from surviving an almost fatal car accident while riding as passenger.  I try really hard to keep my blog positive and stay focused to my purpose of creating the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business. I have no doubt GOD has me here for a reason. Perhaps my story will inspire you to never give up, let Jesus Christ hold you up when you are tired. Seems GOD created us to have free will. For some of us this is harder as we want to trust GOD but we begin recycling the problem, pain, money, suffering and then in exhaustion we cry out to GOD for help. I have learned to ask GOD for everything even a parking spot. 

My purpose; Helping the donkeys, mules and horses have a better life showing people resistance free training (without pain) is not only possible it is the best way to train equine this is indeed my purpose. 

Guess what I have learned while on this journey of teaching the owner or caretaker to train the donkey, mule or horse? 

It’s all about you! The donkey has sized you up in a matter of seconds.

  1. Abuser or bully
  2. Treat Dispenser
  3. Fair Leader Who Can Be Trusted

Remember the journey of life is short. We must not take a single day for granted at any moment everything can change. Change is what makes us grow. Change is terrifying without faith. Faith is something we feel we do not see. God asks us to trust him first. Next we must make a move. Show our faith. Most of the time after we do this we must wait. I think the waiting is a testing time. God is looking to see if we are real and will we trust him. I can tell you if you do not stop trusting GOD and live your life with gratitude, forgiveness to those who have harmed you and mostly yourself. Your life will explode with possibilities even you could never dream of. God is amazing! We humans are simply here to leave our finger print mark, a place for others to see we were here on the planet. Each of us has gifts and talents unique to what GOD has gifted us to do. The key is learning to trust what we love to do and then go do it.  Sometimes volunteering before expecting to work and earn money in a new profession is needed.

Shine your light bright for the entire world to see and never forget the moment you step out in life the critics will appear. Why? Some people simply are not going to like some people. It’s called life. Do not let this stop you from your dreams. These people have their own paths to take. Reminder it’s not about trying to please people. It’s about pleasing GOD. Say I am sorry and mean it when we make a mistake with another living human or animal and try not to repeat the behavior. We must try to work on ourselves it is the only thing we can truly change ourselves.  Forgive quickly. Live in the moment just like the animals.

All work with no relaxation or play is exhausting. Living in our busy world takes balance, planning and time management skills. We must take the time we need to recharge our batteries. Prayer is like talking to your very best friend it’s easy. Lord I know you are there in heaven. I need your protection, guidance and favor without you I am nothing. Sounds simple but many of us forget we must talk to GOD each day, never skip a day.

Our attitude is probably one of the most important things we can change; also one of the most difficult to change when enduring pain and suffering.  If we can learn to control our attitude we can create a massive chain reaction moving us into the life we want to create, share, enjoy and pass down as our legacy after we leave these human bodies.  I cry out for GOD to help me change my attitude as I don’t believe I am strong enough to tackle my attitude without Jesus Christ helping me.  Each of us has one life to live and it is our responsibility as adults to figure out our special gifts and talents and enjoy what we are given no matter how unfair it all seems.

I worked really hard to wait. GOD helped me wait and I could see the equine in the video camera surveillance as we have these in the stalls and pastures.

I could not put any weight on my pelvis for 90 days. The first thing I did after the car accident with the help of the walker was go see my horse and donkeys. Never give up!

Sadly I suffer from chronic pain daily, hourly since the almost fatal car accident in the spring of 2010. I just don’t understand why any person should have to have this kind of pain and suffering day in and day out.  Praying GOD releases me from pain and heals my body to 100% restoration, for now I must keep my head up and live life grateful most days I am pretty good. I am indeed a reminder to never invoke pain and suffering on any human or animal is truly awareness that I am trying to teach with GOD’s help I have indeed touched you in some way.  You will then make an attitude change and stop abuse of humans and animals as each of us is exactly in the right place to help others enjoy life.  Please do not let anyone abuse a human or animal. You can stop abuse!  God has planted you in the exact time and place to help another living animal or person. REMEMBER this could be you and you need a person to pay it forward. We get from life what we put into it, darkness or light. What do you chose? 

Yesterday was a hard day had another back spasm so bad again and I really don’t know why.  The metal in my pelvis messes everything up when I walk, bend, sit and stand and yet without the metal in my pelvis I would surely not be able to walk so it is a double edge sword one I work on mentally every single hour I am awake.

Writing is very therapeutic as it helps me help you.  Sadly, many of us live in isolation in this great big world, we think we are the only person suffering. Most people suffer it is the world we live in. Trying to live in the moment and help others is always a way to help us heal.

I share these very personal feelings in hopes my pain and suffering helps another human or animal not suffer so much.  GOD uses everything negative to help others and I pray my transparency helps you and gives you the courage to enjoy your life and push past the fears that are holding you back to enjoy this precious life.

Each of us has the same amount of time in each day and yet some people complete so very much more than others.  These are the interesting and perplexing thoughts that come into my mind all the time.  If you have survived trauma GOD has a reason to keep you here on earth.  GOD uses each of us to be a light in the dark for others. Never forget that GOD is good and he wants all his children to surrender to him with a simple prayer.

Please never ever abuse your donkey, horse or mule.  Please never abuse any human or animal and if you see abuse open your mouth and help the victim animal or human. You are a human angel. No other person can do what you can do as GOD has planted you in the perfect location. The key is to look for opportunities to be a blessing to others even when we are exhausted.

Please understand pain is not the answer to training horses, mules and donkeys.  Take the time it takes to train your equine after all you are the smart human they are just domesticated animals forced to live in the environment you created for them. Pain and suffering makes certain personalities of humans and animals fight back harder and one day the result can be deadly. Working with equine is a dangerous sport. Please be sure you have a great coach or trainer to teach you how to be a fair leader without abuse. Your family, work, and relationships all around you will flourish when you learn how to control your emotions. Animals are always looking for a leader not an abuser. People cannot learn anything from a bully. Please learn natural resistance free training techniques.

Here I am standing  in the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC office. Dreams do come true! Never give up!!!!

Be grateful for your life and what GOD has given you!  Do not treat your animals like prisoners in lieu of a partner.  If your horse, donkey or mule won’t come to you when you step into their world perhaps it’s time for you to figure out why? Sounds like a relationship problem and guess what outstanding relationships take time, prayer and patience.

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

Give Me Some Love


 

We have been working really hard to finish our home. Mr. Rocket Man age 24 one of our mini donkeys refused to eat his vitamin until he had his love. Donkeys are not stubborn. Donkeys are smart. Donkeys are emotional and analytical at the same time.
