Is It Real Or Fake?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I have lived in the Pacific Northwest my entire life. When my husband saw this tree he said “This is the one”, no watering, no mess. Well we moved over to the other side and I am here to say this is it! I love this fake tree. Easy to setup and no tree died.

Aging is a process for sure, one I was not ready to embrace as we have always cut our own beautiful fresh tree. We are excited to share the fake tree is amazing. Looks real and takes minutes to setup.

Do you have a fake tree or a fresh tree?

Home Is Where The Animals Live

Our farm is more than a business, our farm is our family.

Creating a farm takes lots of planning, savings and patience. The farm is a full-time investment of time, energy and funds. Each animal is unique, as time passes so does their health care requirements similar to people.

Why do people love owning a farm?

The farm is a wonderful place to work and relax at the same time. The human body was made to stay in motion. Not to sit around in front of the computer or other electronic devices. Fresh air and a purpose helps us sleep really hard at night.

The animals each have unique personalities and they are truly part of our life. We love each animal for life.

  2. Not move the feet
  3. Lay down
  4. Kick and or bite
  5. Use their head to hurt you

Donkeys are the exotic Desert Equine. Donkeys require a serious diet of low sugar and low protein hay to stay healthy. Shelter and clean water is a must. Donkeys need another donkey to live with to be healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. Donkeys have photographic memories. Donkeys are visual learners. Donkeys require a dry paddock for the majority of their day. Donkeys evolved from the desert. Try creating fences and gates to ensure your donkey gets exercise and eats some green grass for limited amounts of time. Studies have proven if we let our easy keeper equine eat 6:00am to 10:00am the sugar content will be lower in our pastures. Never feed alfalfa hay, grass clippings, bread, or pears, apples to your donkey. A bite of an apple once in a while is safe but too much is going to cause colic. I simply do not feed apples to my donkeys. I love my donkeys and do not want to bury my donkeys. Apples can ferment and there is a chance of colic.

• A male donkey is called a jack.

• ‘Burro’ is the Spanish word for donkey. Wild donkeys in the U.S.A. are called  burros.

• A female donkey is called a jenny or jennet.

• A mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse (mare).

• A hinny is the offspring of a male horse (stallion) and a female donkey (jenny).

Donkeys need dry pastures and paddocks as their hooves were made to live in the desert.

Does A Donkey Need A Hoof Trimmer?

Donkeys need their hooves to be trimmed just like a horse.

In the wild the donkey is walking up to 25 to 35 miles a day. On our farm the donkey is most likely not moving this much. A trimmer who is skilled in donkeys hooves is imperative to your domesticated donkeys health. It is best to keep your donkey(s) on a regular trimming schedule.

Select Donkey Whisperer Farm

Donkeys need the following:

  1. Shelter
  2. Clean water
  3. A dry paddock for most of their day.
  4. Lose clean salt in the shelter
  5. Hay to be tested to come in below 10% sugar.
  6. Never feed alfalfa, hay clippings or people foods, breads, cookies etc.,
  7. Never leave your desert equine the donkey on grass or brush, trees all day. They will get sick and have health problems.
  8. Fecal samples to test for parasites. No parasites no need to worm. Over worming has caused resistant free parasites in our donkey, mule and horse world. This is expensive to fix. Just like taking too many antibiotics in the human world over worming destroys the immune system and causes resistant free parasites.
  9. A vet check for dental and health at least once a year.
  10. Trimmer on a regular basis six weeks in the spring and summer and 7 in the fall and winter living in the Pacific Northwest.
