Thinking Of Donkeys as Donkeys Come In Two’s

Do you ever find yourself thinking about donkeys? We have had donkeys in our life for fifteen years now and well it’s hard to remember life without a horse and a couple of donkeys, they are indeed part of our family.  

Why Donkeys? Perhaps GOD understood before I did the importance of donkeys in our life as our donkeys are part of our family now.  I have always been a human that likes to learn, digs for information, steps out of the box to try new things and I am naturally creative.   Thank you, Jesus!  The human brain is indeed one of the most important organs GOD gave us.

We are proud to make and sell the best quality and fit donkey rope halters. Each donkey halter is made in the U.S.A. Donkey soft yacht rope halter, lead lines with a brass snap, leather end. Check us out at our store Select Our Store.  

Our Miniature and Standard Burro size soft yacht rope halter will fit from age 4 months to full-grown, sold with a matching lead line, brass twist safety snap, black leather end.

Custom/special orders 

You will order the halter and let us know you want to measure the head. We will build you a perfect fitting donkey halter made to last a lifetime.

Please send questions to our e-mail at melody@donkeywhisperer.com we are happy to help you.

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY, HORSE OR MULE WHILE NOT IN ATTENDANCE TO AVOID SELF-MUTILATION OR DEATH.

Why are donkeys so special?   Donkeys have a cross on their back, this is special.

Well, they are usually not always but usually more relaxed than the horse and well kinda like a black lab they just want to be loved on, they want to eat, they want to snuggle with their human.  The donkey loves to play tug with their four-legged donkey buddy.  Donkeys love to jump up and grab the neck of their donkey buddy.  Donkeys are donkeys!

Donkeys never forget anything they must be treated with a fair and respectful plan. Never abuse your donkey. Rehabilitation of an abused donkey can takes many, many years and some of these donkeys can become violent towards people they associate with the past abuse. I.e., a smell, man or woman (former abuser), truck, sounds, cigarette. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is real in animals just like people. Donkeys can see in color.

What Do Donkeys Need To Stay Healthy?

1. Clean water fresh water, diet, low sugar and low protein  hay  Never feed donkeys alfalfa hay ever. Hay must be tested to come in no higher than 10% Sugar to keep the exotic desert equine healthy. Exercise is key. 

2. Taming – Donkeys need their hooves picked out daily and their feet trimmed at least every 7 weeks

3.  Donkeys need the vet to come and see them at least once a year

4.  Donkeys need their teeth checked at least once a year

5.  Donkeys need us, humans, to check for sores, lice, or a limp – Watch your donkey learn how they move so you can catch problems quickly

6.  Donkeys need clean fresh water every day and in the winter warm water, Donkeys need to lose salt in a dry place. A salt lick will do but will not be as effective to prevent colic.

7. Donkeys need their human to be on time with meals – My donkeys hardly ever bray as they can depend on us to bring their meals, they do not need to remind us ever

8. It is a myth to believe all donkeys bray all day long they don’t bray unless they are calling out to a donkey or they are upset about meals or something else like a predator coming into their pasture. Jacks bray more. Very few jacks (stallion horse world) are worthy of reproduction. Owning a Jack is not for the beginner donkey owner or even the novice. Owning a Jack takes having people to help you manage your farm correctly it is not for the beginner.

9. Donkeys do not enjoy a bath, donkeys seem to not enjoy the water even on the warmest weather.  Our donkeys get one bath a year and I hand wash their face just like my horse, never spray a donkey with a hose in the face

10.  Donkeys ears can be broken and not stand up so be careful when touching them

11.  Donkeys can grow lot’s of thick donkey fur for the winter

Rio our Mammoth donkey age 9 months with my hubby Scott.

12.  Donkeys are looking for a great human leader who will take the time it takes, donkeys are visual learners

13. Donkeys can hear things way sooner than the horse

14. Pick up the poop every day and compost. Do not drag across your pasture until the poop has composted and killed parasites for at least one year.

15. Last but final tip about donkeys; never ever drill a donkey, less is more and remember Donkeys never forget anything – Be careful what and how you train your donkey 🙂 SELECT E-TRAINING DONKEY 101 VIDEO ON DEMAND. 

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

We are excited to share our new website. Select Donkey Whisperer Farm

We are hosting our first live student here on the farm soon. Our virtual Video vault will be up and running soon helping more donkey owners learn how to train their personal donkey themselves.

Stay tuned as the Donkey Whisperer Farm has big changes coming in 2017.

Thank you for re-blogging this post.

Sadly the donkey is still the underdog of the equine world making education difficult to find for the owner of the domesticated donkey. Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm we work hard to train the owner to train the donkey and provide educational support for the health and well-being of the donkeys domesticated environment, shelter, pasture, toys, another donkey to play with. Donkeys need another donkey to live with. Geldings enjoy living with another gelding. Jennies with another Jennie. A Jack (Stallion) should not live with another donkey. Inner breeding can start as early of six months.

Many people think the donkey is easy to keep healthy in domestication. This is not true! The donkey evolved in the desert requiring us humans to learn the strict diet of the donkey and more.

If you need help learning how to prepare your donkey for the trimmer or more we are working very hard to help you. Our Donkey Halters are a tool for you the owner to train your donkey. Please never leave any halter on your donkey while not in 100% attendance to avoid self-mutilation or death.

Welcome Spring 2016, Donkey Whisperer Farm Our Hay Is Growing

Hello sweet friends,

All of the animals on the Donkey Whisperer Farm are happy! Spring is here, the birds are making nests, hay is growing. Donkeys are singing, (extroverts), our horses are starting to seriously play horse games and napping.  Note; only a safe equine will lay down and get some much-needed REM sleep. The warmth of the sun is vital to all of us. I am pleased to share I have started a small fruit orchard and a very small flower bed. Scott finally let me have a few flowers, yes I have a little lavender. We will be selling our first and only cutting of alfalfa, orchard mixture the end of June, first week of July 2016. We can not feed this hay to our donkeys. Alfalfa is too hot for donkeys. Donkeys evolved in the desert, requiring hay to be tested to come in below 10% sugar content.

Helping Restore A Horse

This horse came to me seriously troubled, biting, urinating, striking, bug eyes, head high, tale high and could not think. She has lost a good inch off her back now as she is relaxed most of the time. I expect to have her in the saddle by mid summer or the end. I am a world-wide trainer of owners of donkeys, mules and horses. The most important lesson I teach is to wait another day when the equine is fearful or stressed. No one can learn when they are stressed. Make sure you are 100% a fair leader, always a leader with a plan. The soaking, relaxation is vital to the success of training your donkey, horse or mule.

I have moved Rio our Mammoth donkey into a combo snaffle and wow is he amazing. Why? I trained him to ride with just the rope halter, my voice, legs, wearing the bit is never about hurting the equine. Keep training lessons short. Never drill. Always end your training session with something the donkey, horse or mule knows how to do. I am working to prepare Rio to pull a cart. Our farm in Sequim, WA is touching three major highways, paved roads. I need to make sure I have 100% breaks in case of an emergency when cart pulling. Cart pulling is serious business you must have your equine trained in all areas of safety, walk-on, whoa, etc., before pulling a cart as they can and do flip over.

Select Budweiser Horses Flips even the best trained equine can have an accident.

Farm

 

We expect to get 350 to 400 bales at 70 pounds each. You do not want to miss this local hay in Sequim, WA. We have owned our land three years now and for the past three years no chemicals have been placed on our farm. We are adding compost from our donkeys and horses and the hay is growing fast. By the end of June our hay will be taller than our five foot fences. Wow!

My dream to make a quality rope halter that fits a donkey not a horse came true last year when I started working with my wonderful contractor. I am proud to share our rope halter is hand-made from quality yacht rope to never mold.

How can I wash my halter?

Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and let dry. Yacht rope will not mold.

wp-1457445180653.jpg

The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halter is made to fit a mini, standard or Mammoth donkey, not a horse!  No measuring for the mini or standard.

When you purchase from us in the United States Of America the price includes the rope halter, brass screw on snap, leather popper (training never hit your donkey). Packing, shipping and tax. Out of the USA send me an e-mail with your shipping address for a quote to ship. My e-mail is Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com or call me at 360 620-5868.

I stand 100% behind my Donkey halters. If you do not like the halter or it does not fit I will refund your money as long as you return to me in the same condition I sent it to you. Most of the photos are of our customers donkeys not our farm. All of my customers are happy with the fit and quality!  I have never had any halter returned to me other than a MAMMOTH halter.
