Do You Have A Fly Problem On Your Farm?

I have been receiving lots of inquires asking me what to do when fly’s are eating donkeys, face, legs.  I really have had a difficult time understanding why this is happening until I saw the photo below showing a donkey rescued needing immediate medical attention.  The equine that has open sores like the donkey below needs immediate medical veterinarian care most likely antibiotics and it will take a while for him/her to recover. I am not a vet but I am an advocate for the equine (donkeys, mules and horses) this is abuse in my eyes.

Remember you chose the equine they did not choose you.

 “You are the smart human who took the equine in it is your job to take care of the animal and give him/her a great life.”  Shame on people who throw any animal out in a pasture and never ever check on them to make sure they are healthy. This makes me very angry and I have tears for this donkey and all the other animals suffering when this is preventable. Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.

Allergies:

Did you know animals get allergies? YES!

If your equine (donkey, mule or horse) is not getting well you must seek medical attention. Donkeys can have an auto-immune health issue causing them to be allergic to almost anything. zertech, bendadryl and apoquel may work for your donkey. Make sure to check for Cushing’s with a blood work check as many times the immune system is compromised due to Cushing’s. Please work with your vet.

How do I stop Fly’s on the Donkey Whisperer Farm?  

1.  We pick up the poop out of the paddock twice a day and compost it.  My husband takes his tractor and moves it away from the paddock to turn into black gold compost takes about a year in the Pacific Northwest.

2.  We using Fly Predators since 2007 as they work.

3.  Each and every day – twice a day I check my equine over for wounds and medicate right away and pick their hooves.

Pick up the poop several times a day, each and every day, use a fly mask if needed and medicate when they have sores immediately. Try my simple two steps above as they work we have no fly problem on the Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.  Please have empathy; think how you would like to be stuck in a place, hot with fly’s and poop every where it is horrible.

Parasites, picking up the poop and composting stops worms dead in their tracks too 🙂  We take fecal samples to the vet and do not worm unless they need it over worming can cause more problems as the worms become drug resistant and it destroys the immune system.  That’s it, no big deal no more fly problem 🙂

Natural To Blanket Our Beloved Domesticated Horse, Donkey Or Mule?

A blanket is like a fire extinguisher we hope we do not need to use it. We have it ready and learn how to use it before the emergency hits. Please be prepared. Please train your donkey to accept the blanket before the emergency hits. I never blanket unless an emergency or the donkey is suffering cant move due to arthritis and age. As soon as the weather gets out of extreme cold the blanket is off. Or the vet says the stall rest is over etc., No blanket is water proof. We must use common sense. Warm water in the winter (clean) helps donkeys drink more and lose free salt.  

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

Farm Dogs – Livestock Guarding Dogs

 

Miniature donkeys cannot defend themselves from the predator and some older and slower donkeys standard and mammoth cannot. A cougar or wolf is a serious threat.

We love living on our farm the Donkey Whisperer Farm. Every blessing is from GOD in Jesus Christ name, we thank GOD every day for this farm. Dogs are a huge part of keeping our farm working to live in peace and harmony. Predators will destroy your farm.  If you are looking for a livestock guarding dog we highly recommend Marble Peaks Anatolian and Shepherd Rest Anatolian breeders.

Please remember the Anatolian dog is not for the beginner dog owner. This breed requires a fair human leader, a fence and is a self-thinker. This breed is not for the beginner dog owner. Large fenced farms are a requirement as these dogs love to bark, run and dig!

The Anatolian is a serious dog, built to remove predators from the farm. It is our belief all animals require clean water, fences and shelter to get out of the elements. A vet is required for all animals just like people need to see a doctor. Common sense is vital to the health of your farm animals and the farm you manage. Please do your homework before making the decision to bring the Anatolian into your life. These dogs do not enjoy change, they need a fair leader just like the donkey. 

Thank you for visiting our blog!
