Make A Commitment To Your Donkey

Congratulations you have prepared your farm for equine!

Now the real work begins. You are the owner of this beautiful equine a donkey, horse or mule. You the owner have responsibilities that must be maintained for the life span of your equine. Here are few issues to consider.

Have I Done My Homework?

The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® trains the owner to train the donkey. This is 100% successful in keeping the donkey(s) on your farm.  When the owner is trained to be a fair leader and have a routine the donkey will stay with the owner and not be re-sold. Trauma can change this for the owner due to health and life issues. But in most cases even trauma victims want to keep their trained donkeys.

Do I Have Time To Train My Donkey?

Donkeys are smart not stubborn. Donkeys require humans to learn behavioral issues, signs of stress, fear and relaxation and have a plan each time we step into their world. Without a skill set the donkey will train the owner. Next the owner is frustrated and gives up. The donkey is sold and may or may not survive. A donkey who cannot have their hooves trimmed, a vet call etc., has a grim life.

Do You Want The responsibility?

Forget about the financial obligations, vet calls, hoof care, dental work, hay, fences, shelters. You can’t leave town! You cant leave your donkey alone without someone to feed and care for your donkeys. It is imperative you create a relationship built on a fair leadership program. All relationships take time and experiences. If we just throw the hay over the fence and provide the basic necessities in life for our donkey we will never become the fair leader our donkey desires. Safety is number one for both you and your donkey.

Training You The Owner To Train The Donkey

When you take the time to follow Donkey 101 and Donkey 102 your farm life will be easy. Your donkeys will follow you as a leader. Peace and Harmony is on your farm each time you step into your donkeys world. This will take you the owner learning how to lead your donkey every time you are with them. Consistent methods create excellence in our life in all areas.

We invite you to take a look at Donkey 101 E-Training and Donkey 102 E-Training.

Never drill, end the lesson on a good note. Spend no more than fifteen minutes at a time teaching. Next wait another day “ON DONKEY TIME” let your donkey soak and think. Once you the owner teach your donkey to trust you first. Teaching becomes fun and easy. Your donkey will never forget what you teach so be sure you are teaching your donkey correctly.  We teach you how to teach words to your donkey not clicker training. Donkeys are visual learners and they have a photographic memory.

Preparing The Donkey For The Farrier

One of the most wonderful days for donkeys owners is the day we bring our donkey(s) home. Donkeys are healthier emotionally, physically and mentally when they have another donkey to grab the neck and play tag. Eat and groom on the withers. One of the first things we must do is get the farrier on a regular schedule to trim the hooves.

In most cases the donkey has not had any form of training for hoof care or the training was used with pain. Donkeys who are trained with pain will remember the pain, making the farrier day difficult. Can this be fixed? Yes. I train the owner or caretaker how to learn donkey behavior, personality and learn stress and relaxation signs. Each of my students can learn how to do an exercise with their donkey and then take me to the farm with them using any smart phone or device. Each video comes with a written book a PDF to learn. I am training the owner or caretaker to train the donkey.

How Often Do We Trim The Hoof?

Six weeks in the spring and summer as the hoof grows faster during the warm seasons

Seven in the fall and winter

Preparation is the key to farrier day

Donkey 101 & 102 Video On Demand with our stick and string trains the owner or caretaker how to train the donkey. Learn how to prepare for the farrier before he/she arrives. Select Our Store to order.

The farriers job is to balance the hoof and trim the hoof. Never to train your donkey. If you expect your farrier to train your donkey this will be a sad day. The donkey must be prepared and trust the human before the farrier work begins.  Preparation and quality exercises in Donkey 101 & 102 will prepare your donkey for the farrier. Please do not expect the farrier to train your donkey. Set your donkey up for success. His life depends on you and your training as re-homing a donkey that cannot get the hooves done and will not come to humans is most difficult.
