Melody, I saw a video from a large Donkey Rescue Organization using a fence panel to tame donkeys. What do you think of this technique? Tina, OK.
Tina, I have seen the video. 🙁 Humans and Animals cannot learn when under the flight response. The donkey in the video is dangerous due to the flight response and being locked in the fence panel. The human is afraid for good reason. This is not the way to teach the donkey to trust the human.
Donkeys have photographic memories. Every time we step into our donkey’s world we are teaching something. Good or bad we are teachers.
Attempting to teach any human or animal when scared is impossible. The brain must be calm in order to learn. For humans and animals.
I prefer to train my students to learn donkey behavior, personality, signs of stress and relaxation, and how to set the donkey(s) up to learn and for success.
Learn how to keep the donkey calm and stop the pressure before the donkey is pushed into the stress zone of fighting or withdrawing depending on the personality.
Donkey Personality Introverted donkeys when pushed will lay down. Extroverts will rear, bite and kick. Both introverted and extroverted donkeys can stop moving their feet when stressed. The eyes are glazed over as they have checked out for a while.
Never betray a donkey, never ever hurt a donkey in any way. Never let a donkey see you the human leader watch while a human or animal hurts the donkey. The donkey will deem the human who did not stop the pain NOT A LEADER. Less is more; equine learn from the release of pressure. 🙂
Seems like forever since I walked in my bare feet to move the sprinkler. Listened to the hissing of the water landing on the hay field, trees and plants and yet its truly only been weeks. Spring and Summer are truly my most favorite times of the year.
“Any person who owns equine (donkeys, horses and mules) and does not make sure their hooves are being trimmed on a regular basis is abusing the equine. If you decide to own a donkey, horse or mule you must take the responsibility of regular hoof maintenance, vet care, worming, food, clean space free of feces, urine, shelter and good clean fresh water.”
Picking their hooves out is vital to optimum health and care of our beloved domesticated equine.Training tip – Picking their hooves clean and brushing the gunk out every day is one amazing training tool! No different than brushing our teeth taking a shower every day it must be done.”
