How Can I Keep My Donkey Healthy

Hello donkey lovers and friends my name is Melody Johnson I am happy to meet you!

Donkeys evolved from the desert, their diet is serious we cannot let a donkey graze all day on grass, brush and trees without getting sick. If you live in the green and muddy part of the world create a dry paddock connected to the shelter with a gate to a track for exercise. The donkeys long fur coat is used to protect the donkey from insects and sunburn. The donkeys hooves are pointy compared to a horse made to walk on on dry hard ground.

Donkeys are intelligent not stubborn, donkeys are just as smart as dolphins and dogs their memory is comparable to elephants. Donkeys are game players and are seriously into self-preservation. Donkeys deserve to be trained using humane training techniques.

“Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained” Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ® a worldwide trainer.

How can I purchase healthy food for my donkey?

  1. Test all hay or forage before purchasing for the year. I test all of my hay at Equine Analytical Lab in the USA and I purchase enough hay for my six donkeys and two horses for the entire year. The goal is 10% or lower in sugar and protein for the desert equine and the easy keeper horses and mules. Straw is not always low in sugar be sure to test to make sure just because it is barley straw does not mean it is low in sugar. Color of hay is not an indicator of low sugar we must test before feeding to our donkeys.
  2. Use a slow feeder, hay pillow never leave a big round bale out to eat on all day as portion control is very important to the desert equine. Obesity is the number one form of abuse in the USA for donkeys out of the USA it is being underfed and overworked.
  3. Safe treats are a bite of a carrot. Never feed cookies, breads and sugar foods to the donkey.
  4. Clean water, cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Donkeys drink way more water when its clean.
  5. Salt get lose salt with selenium and minerals if your hay has no selenium, remove selenium if your hay has selenium.
  6. Shelter is a must. Make sure your shelter is big enough for all of your donkeys to get out of the weather. Provide food and water in the shelter to help them get over the fear of the shelter.
  7. Provide farrier appointments every six weeks in the spring and summer and seven in the fall and winter as the hoof grows slower in the cold seasons.
  8. Provide dental checkups at least once a year with your vet. Why? Domesticated donkeys get high points and gums can get inflamed needing regular vet care.
  9. Shots, five way is the best for your donkey in the spring of each year. Give your vet fresh poop for a fecal sample spring and fall before worming. Your vet will tell you to worm or not to worm. Over worming creates resistant parasites to wormer that are difficult to remove and in some cases cant be removed. Over worming destroys the donkeys immune system.
  10. Ask your vet to check for insulin resistance (blood work) and cushings as your donkeys ages.

11. Donkeys are wood eaters this is not cribbing. Donkeys seek out wood to chew on and eat. If you use wood pellets bedding add water as the donkey will eat the pellets they will expand in the tummy and can cause colic and death.

Donkeys Have Personalities

Did you know animals have personalities?

Donkeys are born with their unique personality, extroverts are more go than whoa. Introvert more whoa than go. Did you know introvert donkeys do not bray? Yes, it’s true the true deep introvert donkey will make a little bit of noise but will never let out a full bray.

Training the introvert takes a bunch of patience and a plan. Why? Everything the introvert does new takes longer to process the information and learn to trust. The donkeys’ gift is the ability to problem-solve and think. Donkeys do not want to do anything that may or may not hurt them or worse kill them. The horse’s gift is speed. Horses when scared fart, poop, and run.

10 Things About Donkeys You Most Likely Did Not Know

Donkeys are livestock guardians

This is wrong! Some donkeys make great livestock guardians. Donkeys will guard the animals they are bonded to if they are big enough. A miniature donkey is too small to guard anything. Domesticated dogs can kill a miniature donkey. Donkeys bond to their own species. If a donkey is simply placed with a flock of sheep that it does not know, the donkey may grab the neck of the sheep and kill it. Donkeys will kill baby sheep and goats so best to keep the babies away from donkeys. Donkeys grab the neck of another donkey in play and in battle. Please get livestock guarding dogs to guard and protect the livestock. Remember livestock guarding dogs need to be trained to protect livestock. Donkeys need a serious diet as donkeys evolved from the desert. Hay and all forage must be tested to come in at 10% or lower in sugar and protein. Sadly farmers re-sell or give away a donkey who has not performed the job as livestock guarding to their satisfaction.

Donkeys are good for calming a herd of horses or calves.

Donkeys evolved from the desert. Donkeys need a serious diet and cannot eat all day and night on pasture or brush. Most livestock is fed an extremely rich diet full of grains and lush pasture. Donkeys who are fed rich food or overfed grass or brush will get insulin resistance, fat deposits on the body, and the neck will break over or be crusty. Hoof abscesses are common with a rich diet, the liver fails and soon the donkey dies a painfully slow death. Donkeys are stoic and will never show pain until it is too late.

Donkeys Are Intelligent, Not Stubborn

Donkeys are not flight animals like horses, so you cannot as easily scare or force a donkey to do a task. An old school round penning will never work on a donkey. Donkeys need to see a reason for everything they do. Donkeys evolved from the desert, a donkey needs time to think. I call this ON DONKEY TIME ®. The donkey will never do anything that can hurt the donkey. Self-preservation is number 1 to a donkey. The horse will jump off the grand canyon when scared, do you see the difference? A donkeys’ gift is not sped it is a brain that can problem-solve to stay alive.

Donkeys are incredibly strong.

Donkeys have a reputation for being strong pack animals and while this is true, they are not stronger than another animal of the same size. Donkeys can only hold up to 20% of their weight. Donkeys must be full-grown and conditioned to do heavy work.

When Is A Donkey Full-Grown?

Miniature Donkeys age three

Standard or Burro age four

Mammoth Donkeys six to seven

Welcome donkey lovers, my name is Melody Johnson, I love donkeys. I began my business in 2013 after getting frustrated with the lack of tack and training available for donkeys. I am the voice for the donkey. I train the owner or caretaker worldwide how to tame and train the donkey using resistance-free exercises, never pain. I do not teach clicker training (R). I teach you how to use words, voice, facial expressions, timing and quality exercises that are powerful for you and your donkey to build a fantastic relationship. Donkeys are smart, not stubborn. Donkeys have a photographic memory. Donkeys bond for life to the animal or human they trust. Donkeys are gifts from God.  All of my training series (video on demand) is sold with lifetime access and can be accessed using any smart device, take me to the farm with you.

Miniature halters have a 6ft lead line, burro/standard a 9ft lead line. Mammoth donkeys, mules, horses come with a 12ft lead line. If you wish to customize your order simply ask I am happy to serve you.

Training a donkey is a bit different from a horse as donkeys are deep thinkers. Donkeys naturally push into pressure using our soft yacht rope halter with strategically placed fiador knots is a game-changer. Once you use our soft yacht rope halter and lead line you will never go back to the flat halter.

How can I clean my tack? Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and dry. Donkey Whisperer Farm ® soft yacht rope is mildew, frail, dirt, rot, and UV resistant. This means that your tack will stay in its original form longer, without breaking, fading saving you money.

 

Thank you for investing in your donkey,

Ten Things Donkeys Want You To Know

   1. Most important – Please don’t beat me or punish me for being slow and not moving fast enough, unlike the horse I can think all the time. If I overreact understand I am stressed. 

2.  I enjoy being talked to, brushed, and loved on when I am sure you will not hurt me. I will not eat if stressed. I am a donkey, donkeys are seriously into self-preservation.

3.  I learn differently from the horse I am a visual learner.  I learn by watching from an honor horse, mule, or another honor donkey or you doing something with me standing and watching at a safe distance.  Please walk away from me with scary new things and let me come to you on my time I am scared of new things and need you to slow down.

4. I prefer clean water, warm water in the winter and low sugar, protein hay as I gain weight fast I was created to live in the desert.

5. I am really smart please do not leave me all alone, give me a companion I prefer a donkey but will take a horse or mule.

6. I need my hooves trimmed just like the horse.

7. I need my teeth taken care of just like the horse. I need a vet check once a year.

8. Please feed me at least two small meals a day when I am on a dry pasture and never feed me alfalfa hay or grass clippings.

9. I like to play with toys, orange traffic cone, feed bowl, or jolly ball I am smart and get bored easy just like you.

10.  I am special GOD gave me a cross on my back and I am the only animal in the bible GOD gave the ability to talk.
