Long Ear Dewormer

There are many opinions on the internet and social media when it comes to deworming long ears. One huge myth is moxidectin aka Quest is toxic. Here is Dr. Amy Mclean's response to inquiring about dewormers. The course she mentioned below sounds fantastic for anyone who wants to learn more! We are very lucky to have veterinarian's like Dr. Mclean who are very knowledgeable about our long ear friends. She and her colleagues are putting on an educational course open to the public- if you have the time and funds it would definitely be worth it! See in the photo below for the link.


Saddle Up Magazine

Our club enters a monthly article in this great magazine. Remember to check it out (it is free online) If you have a story you would like to share about your long ears please email and we will get it published.

Casino Update

We have a date! May 11 & 12 in Edmonton! We will need your help in volunteering to make this happen. These funds will allow group activities/insurance fees, etc... to happen for the next two years. Expenses will be covered. Please email if you can help out.

Website Update

  • The website now has a "Links" section- feel free to suggest links that may be interesting to long ear fans
  • We have a section on the website called "Our Club In Action"- we would love to show off pictures/short blurbs of what you are doing with your long ears- whether it is at home or out and about. The facebook page gets these posts, and it would be great to get them on the website as well.
  • There is an "Upcoming Events" section- please let us know of any events that may be of interest to club members. Remember to check back for your own interest as well!

ISO: halter breaking donkey for our purebred beef operation and I was hoping you could point me in the right direction. My criteria is as follows: traditional regular sized Jesus Donkey. Prefer under 5 years old halter broke, need not have experience with halter breaking cattle but a willing disposition is a must. No preference as to Jack or Jenny. We are located in the Peace Country but could travel to find the right Donkey. We had a breaking donkey for over 20!years and he was exceptional. The new hired hand will have big shoes to fill.
