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?

WE ARE DIFFERENT!

We don’t sell your everyday rope halter and lead line. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond by creating a halter and matching lead line that work together as a powerful training tool for you and your donkey.

Our custom made rope halters were designed for donkeys with the perfect amount of pressure and release when training. Our lead lines include a heavy duty screw on brass snap that can be used as a compassionate correction device.

A lot of planning and design has gone into each halter/lead line set by trainer Melody Johnson. This is a training tool that along with an understanding of donkey psychology and personality can transform your relationship with your donkey (See Online Training Course 101).

Our donkey rope halters with matching lead line are made in the USA with top quality soft, thick yacht rope, not thin, hard polyester line. Each halter comes with a matching lead line and a lifetime warranty.

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!

Wild Donkeys

IN THE WILD

Today we hold in our hearts and in our thoughts the last of the Wild Burros of the Western United States. It is estimated that only 8000 genetically pure wild burros remain in five States. An icon of the wild west and a keystone species of the desert, America would not be what it is today without the Wild Burro.

Please, when possible, be a voice against the systematic destruction of these beautiful creatures by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and please send your prayers.

This photo was taken in 2016 of a wild jenny and her foal at Alamo Lake State Park, Arizona.

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. 

Thank you for visiting our blog!

Hoof Abscess Dangerous Myths

PLEASE DON’T!

Here are some dangerous myths regarding hoof abscess treatment:

1. Soak the abscessed foot in bleach
2. Soak the abscessed foot in Lysol
3. Soak the abscessed foot in Apple Cider Vinegar
4. Place Tea Tree Oil on the abscessed area of the foot
5. Use an anti fungal cream on the abscessed foot
6. Walk your donkey until the abscess blows
7. Dig out the abscessed area with a pocket knife
8. Pack the hoof with Pine Tar and Turpentine
9. Ignore it, it will go away!

A hoof abscess is not a routine health issue! A donkey hoof is living breathing tissue with blood infused laminae. An abscess is a localized, internal infection, creating a pocket that is walled off within the hoof. This infection builds filling the pocket with blood, pus and fluid creating unbearable pressure in the hoof. Hoof abscesses are not external, they are internal. They are not only debilitating, but can be life-threatening!!!

Please, please don’t employ any of the mythical formulas above. Please learn how to respond to a donkey hoof abscess! Go to: Health Care Series
