Fireworks Your Animals Need You To Have A Plan

Fireworks and Pets Not A Good Combination:

Plan ahead to keep pets safe; owning pets is a huge responsibility and for those of us who have equine (donkeys, horses, and mules) living in rural areas, we must be extra careful. The equine is a flight or fight animal when terrified of death. Meaning; they can get scared when the fireworks start, and the smell is in the air.  Some horses have been known to run into fences.  Locking them in their stalls is the safest when neighbors are shooting off fireworks I turn the radio up and give lots of hay and fresh water. Donkeys have died from fear, yes fear. Colic is a life-threatening matter. Donkeys are stoic will not show pain until it is too late. Do your best to stay calm and keep your donkeys, mules, and horses locked up safe in their stall until the fireworks are over. Long-distance fireworks are not that big of a deal, fireworks right over the farm or barn can kill your equine.

Want to read more tips on pet safety and fireworks?  Select Blue Cross Pets Fireworks for more details.

Dogs and cats can get so scared of fireworks they can run off and not be able to find their way home best to keep them locked in the house too. Our doggies get very stressed, turning the radio up helps, some people tranquillize their dogs until the fireworks are over.  I say do whatever you have to do to keep your pets safe as they don’t understand fireworks.  Please remember animals do not understand fireworks “they are truly scared and think they will die.” It’s our job as the smart human to protect them and take care of them.

What do you do to keep your pet(s) safe during the fireworks?  Please leave a comment to help others.

Famous People Who Owned Donkeys – Brigitte Bardot

Animal lover Brigitte Bardot adopted this donkey and the dogs while on location for one of her movies. The donkey was quite sick and BB kept the animal in her rented house where she nursed it back to health. BB’s lover told her she had to choose between him and the donkey. Guess whom she chose?

MacHaven, A Journey

Front Cover
Christian Faith Publishing, IncorporatedApr 6, 2018 – Pets – 120 pages

I had no idea of the direction my life would take when we brought home our Labrador retriever puppy. I had no plans of being involved in any American Kennel Club activities or in breeding. I grew up as a city girl who loved music. Who knew I’d be smitten by a puppy and the direction of my life would be changed forever? All the joys and tears are worth my journey to MacHaven.

Farm Dogs – Livestock Guarding Dogs

 

Miniature donkeys cannot defend themselves from the predator and some older and slower donkeys standard and mammoth cannot. A cougar or wolf is a serious threat.

We love living on our farm the Donkey Whisperer Farm. Every blessing is from GOD in Jesus Christ name, we thank GOD every day for this farm. Dogs are a huge part of keeping our farm working to live in peace and harmony. Predators will destroy your farm.  If you are looking for a livestock guarding dog we highly recommend Marble Peaks Anatolian and Shepherd Rest Anatolian breeders.

Please remember the Anatolian dog is not for the beginner dog owner. This breed requires a fair human leader, a fence and is a self-thinker. This breed is not for the beginner dog owner. Large fenced farms are a requirement as these dogs love to bark, run and dig!

The Anatolian is a serious dog, built to remove predators from the farm. It is our belief all animals require clean water, fences and shelter to get out of the elements. A vet is required for all animals just like people need to see a doctor. Common sense is vital to the health of your farm animals and the farm you manage. Please do your homework before making the decision to bring the Anatolian into your life. These dogs do not enjoy change, they need a fair leader just like the donkey.

Mini Donkeys Cannot Defend Themselves From A Predator

Why do we use the Livestock Guarding Dog (LGD) on the Donkey Whisperer Farm?

These dogs have a bark to keep the predators away from our farm animals. The LGD is instinctively bred to bark at the predator and protect their farm animals. The LGD is not a herding dog. This is not a dog for the first time dog owner, these dogs need a fence, lot’s of exercise and we must remember they are very smart.

Mini donkeys cannot defend themselves. All animals need a leader and a great fence.

Natural To Blanket Our Beloved Domesticated Horse, Donkey Or Mule?

Domesticated Equine (donkey, horse or mule) Need Us Humans To Use Common Sense.

A blanket is like a fire extinguisher we hope we do not need to use it. We have it ready and learn how to use it before the emergency hits. Please be prepared. Please train your donkey to accept the blanket before the emergency hits. I never blanket unless an emergency or the donkey is suffering cant move due to arthritis and age. As soon as the weather gets out of extreme cold the blanket is off. Or the vet says the stall rest is over etc., No blanket is water proof. We must use common sense. Warm water in the winter (clean) helps donkeys drink more and lose free salt.
