Burros

Recommended Posts

Would someone be kind enough to give me a little info on burros? I know they live "WILD" arround here,so they must be able to eat rough, but,I'm wondering how they would be as a substatute for a horse-pull a cultivator,small wagon etc,and as a pack animal? Are they friendly,or like a camel where they'll do what ya make'em but sortof like hold a grudge?(things are likely to get mean enough post SHTF without havin' to worry about 1 of my critters out to get me too)lol

Now RICK,I know you're just tryin' to get out of pulling me in that red wagon you told me to get!lol

 

LMAO..... yeah, he would do that.

 

Rez, from what I understand, burros aren't as ornery as mules. They can pull small carts and smaller loads, but they are also smaller, so don't eat as much either.

in another post I commented about burro's or donkeys are great protectors for your sheep goats and chickens

they will fight any animal that comes into their territory at least most will so having a pair a jennet and a jack

either a miniature or normal size.

 

they are different from mules in many ways but they can be like people some have a better personality than others

be kind and rub and pat them start slow but you can train them to haul and pull a rake or even a small furrow

or ride them they need some harness and leads to adapt and make it comfortable for them to work

a breeder is a good source of information.

you need to remember they are not a ox or a full grown mule but they can pull a small cart like a

garden cart with bicycle wheels I have never had them pull but I would imagine they would do as good and way longer

than a human can a beast of burden needs to be understood it will work itself to exhaustion it is up to you to care for them

and make sure your not letting them get over heated etc all I can say if you eat they eat if you drink they drink if you need a break so do they if you need shade or bugs are bothering you consider the animal also.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
