Donkey Scratch

Introducing Rocket Man, a miniature donkey gelding, he just turned twenty-six years old. Rocket Man has been in our life since he was thirteen years old. When Rio our Mammoth donkey was weaned from his mom, Rio bonded to Rocket Man. Rocket Man was a jack on the breeding farm in his early years.

Rocket Man has the ability to sing when talking and he can bray. He is the only donkey on our farm that sings and he can find anything to get that special spot for a scratch. He is a super special donkey. Did you know some donkeys never bray? Yes, the introverted donkey does not bray. Rio our Mammoth donkey has never ever let out a full-bray and he is fourteen years old. If you would like to learn more about donkey behavior and donkey training please take a look at Donkey 101 & 102 Video On Demand.

Donkeys Neck Should Never Look Like This

The Dangers of Obesity in Donkeys


Donkeys evolved from the desert. Donkeys living in the U.S.A. are being overfed and fed the wrong foods. Once the neck crest breaks over nothing can be done to repair the neck. Insulin resistance, laminitis, and soon death. If you rescue a donkey with this abuse, get a donkey vet fast. You can save this donkey’s life. Diet changes everything in most cases, test all of your hay, equine analytical lab in the USA to ensure 10% or lower in sugar and protein, no grain, create a donkey track, clean water, salt, and portion control with a slow feeder. 

The donkey must live on a dry pasture or paddock for the majority of their life. If we feed the wrong foods such as alfalfa hay, apples, pears, cookies, oats, bread, or munching all day on grass, brush, and trees we will see this in our donkey’s neck. Not to mention death. Death comes next as the donkey evolved from the desert, the donkey was created to live on low sugar/protein hay, clean water.  Round bales for the donkey will cause this too! Hay should be measured and controlled as the donkey evolved from the desert.

Laminitis is a condition in which there is inflammation in the laminae of the foot that connect the pedal bone to the hoof wall. This can progress to rotation or sinking of the pedal bone within the foot. The cause is not fully understood and many factors are involved but obese animals are more prone to develop the disease.”

Equine Metabolic Syndrome: Overweight donkeys often develop a fat, crest neck and fat pads around their tail base. When this occurs the donkey can develop a metabolic disease known as ‘Equine Metabolic Syndrome’. This causes insulin resistance and increased levels of blood glucose (blood sugar) in the bloodstream. In equids, this can lead to recurrent episodes of laminitis or founder. This disease involves inflammation of the white lining or laminar junctions of the feet, extreme foot pain and difficulty walking and chronic abscesses. In severe cases, this is death for the donkey.

Cushing’s

Select What Is Cushing’s

Hyperlipaemia is a condition in which triglycerides (fats) are released into circulation which can result in organ failure and death unless treated rapidly. The early signs of dullness and reduced appetite can be difficult to detect. Hyperlipaemia can be triggered by anything that causes a reduction in food intake e.g. stress, transport, dental disease.

Causes of hyperlipaemia

A number of risk factors have been identified as contributing to this condition. It is known that a female donkey is at higher risk than a male, especially when there are high energy demands such as if she is pregnant or lactating. Overweight and obese animals are at higher risk than those in average condition but even thin donkeys are at risk. Donkeys that have lost significant weight in the preceding weeks should be monitored carefully as they are at a much higher risk of developing this disease. When managing your donkey’s weight, care should be taken not to crash diet as this will put your donkey at risk.

Stress will cause a donkey to reduce its feed intake and can be brought on by many stressors such as:

  • Pain
  • Removal or death of buddy
  • Diet Change
  • Transport
  • Living With Another Animal Who Is A Predator
  • Bad weather
  • Sickness
  • Forced To Live A Life With Constant Stress And Abuse

Action Plan To Lose Weight – DO NOT STOP FEEDING THE DONKEY.

  1. Build Pastures made to exercise, a track
  2. Donkey lives on a dry paddock
  3. Ask your vet to do blood work insulin resistance or cushings
  4. Have the dentist come out and examine the donkey’s teeth
  5. Engage in an exercise routine
  6. Take Your Donkey For Walks
  7. Make Sure Your Donkey Has Toys and A Buddy To Play With
  8. Clean Water
  9. Test Your Hay 10% Or Lower In Sugar and Protein – Measure for portion control.
  10. No treats, sweets, bread, alfalfa, oats

Trophy Is In Training For The Saddle

We have hired Steffan Sherman to start Miss Trophy in the saddle from Sherman Farms, Sequim, WA. Steffan and his wife Gabrielle are amazing with the horses and humans. I am physically disabled. I am not able to take the risk of starting this rescue mare under saddle. 

Steffan and Gabrielle are like minded as they have a herd of horses living on their ranch in Sequim, WA. The lead horse, mule or donkey can help a horse who is learning to have social skills with humans. My horse Miss Lily is a lead mare, my lead mare lives full-time with Miss Trophy. Trophy is emotionally, physically and mentally ready to learn how to carry her rider. 

Working with a rescue or traumatized horse, donkey or mule
What is the most important factor? You! The owner or human who cares for the equine. Rehabilitation takes time. All humans and animals can come back to life if given the time and the opportunity to learn to trust again. Most importantly we must make sure no one ever betrays the equine again ever. Animals like people can have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) a trigger will regress the animal or human quickly. The great news is we can help return the mind to normal faster and faster if we learn how to release the pressure quickly. Never drill. Stay On Donkey Time ®. 

“Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained” Melody Johnson. 


Trophy came to me biting, kicking, striking, weaving her head around all of the time, head high and urinating. Today she is confident and calm 99% of the time. Thank you Jesus. We have been testing her, and re-testing her, every time she is ready and eager to learn the next new thing. 

Walking Our Horses On The Trail Prepares For Trail Riding

We expect to start saddling and riding Miss Trophy soon. Steffan Sherman will ride her on the trail with just a halter and saddle. No buck, no fight, no stress.  Soon I will ride Miss Trophy on the trail. Weather is a huge factor as we move into the rainy season of the Pacific Northwest. Stay On Donkey Time ®.

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.

Enjoy your donkeys as they are gifts from GOD in Jesus Christ name.

God bless you and your family two and four-legged
