Donkey Whisperer Farm Blog 2013 Annual Report


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 53,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 20 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Your most commented on post in 2013 was GOD is Amazing – A Short Ride On Mr. Rio

Click here to see the complete report.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

I am deeply grateful to each one of you for supporting me to continue to blog, share information and to never give up. Several of you have become personal friends and coaches to help me to see that GOD had a big plan when he let me live, GOD wanted me to share his miracle of healing and life. GOD decides when it is time for us to die and not a second sooner.  I am a natural-born leader and extrovert in many ways but I am also a very private person and introvert. I guess that is why I understand the animals as I truly understand what it is like to be scared and endure pain and suffering not just from the car accident as my life has not been easy in fact it has been a trial most of the time, I am a survivor.
 
To my GOD sent husband of almost twenty-one years, emergency medical responders, Airlift Northwest nurse who helped me pray to stay alive on the way to Harborview Trauma hospital, three surgeons, trauma nurses, after care doctors, physical therapists (5), massage therapists (5), house keepers, real friends, landscapers, counselor and even Rite Aid workers. I am truly grateful as just like humpty dumpty it took a team of dedicated medical professionals to put me back together again.

What I Learned From Trauma?

People we think are our friends are not our friends. Friends stick by the side of a friend when they hit the bottom, middle and the top of a mountain. Friends never give up or walk away from a friend. People who walk away are not a friend and it is better to live all alone than have these life suckers in our life.  It is most difficult to follow our dreams if we have people pushing us down and telling us what we cannot do in our life. We can achieve so much more when we keep positive thoughts in our minds. Life suckers (people) like us to be needy and stuck and then they feel good. When we get well and move forward they are not always happy for us. Sad but true.

What I have learned from blogging

I have learned that when I stepped out and shared my trials and deep and darkest moments I was actually helping you and me. Several of you have told me that my story of perseverance has given you the nudge you needed to never give up and give GOD another try in Jesus Christ name. I want each of you to know that I am blessed to have met so many wonderful people and being able to read about your life has helped me when I was not able to do much of anything while healing from the semi-truck accident. I was planning on going back to work in 2010 before the semi-truck accident; for several years after the accident I had no idea if I would ever be able to go back to work again. Heck I could not clean my own home; I could not open the window without help for almost 2 1/2 years. My entire right side was hit so hard that my ribs are now dented into my body changing the spinal cord forever.  The hit from the semi-truck was so strong that it broke every bolt off the passenger seat I was in. I should have died all the doctors told me you are a miracle. Select GOD created a miracle for me to read more. GOD is amazing as he has found a way for me to not only go back to work but work world-wide from my computer to your computer and make a better life for donkeys, mules and horses. A dream I have had since I was a little girl for the horses the donkeys and mules came in my late forties.

How Old Was I When I Became A Follower Of Jesus Christ?

I was forty-two years old. If you want to know more about why I became a warrior for Jesus Christ send me a note at Melody@Donkeywhisperer.com I will share. I call myself a warrior for Jesus as I wear the scars from the middle of my back to under by breast where they opened my chest to save my life. Four chest tubes were inserted to stop the internal bleeding. I am truly a walking miracle. Happy 2014 to you!

Remember your life is precious and fragile, any moment, hour, or day GOD can change everything. What once seemed impossible can become possible.  I went two years and eleven months before my pain doctor found the pain medication to control the nerve pain/back spasms allowing me to get my life back.  Most importantly be able to think and share all the gifts and dreams GOD has placed inside of me. I prayed, prayed and prayed and yet no relief and then one day the pain was controlled in March of 2013.  Never give up on GOD and never give up on yourself.  If you have dreams make a plan to move towards them and remember to invite Jesus Christ in your life as he knows what is best for you. I can do nothing without Jesus!

Looking For Help With Your Donkey, Mule or Horse?


Donkeys are not horses with long ears

RIO&MELODYM

First comes taming, next comes teaching.  My husband Scott and I have owned Rio our Mammoth donkey since he was nine months old. He came to us with no training, in fact we could not lead him at all.  Rocket Man came with Rio at thirteen and he had many issues of mis-trust.  Miss Lily my horse came into our lives at twenty months with no training.  I have helped fifty-six people world-wide with their donkeys and mules and a handful of horses.

Rio (our Mammoth donkey) two days old

RIO2DAYS OLD

Picking out the hooves should be done each and every day just like brushing your teeth.

Imperative to keep the training in place for the trimmer, Farrier or vet.  Additionally this helps you make sure no thrush or rocks are stuck in their hooves. Being a proactive human will keep your equine in optimum health.

Looking for a coach, consultant and trainer?

Select Testimonials to see how I can help you and you can help your equine all from the comfort of your computer.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

SUPPORT A MORATORIUM ON THE CULL OF ALBERTA WILD HORSES


Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Please support the SAFE ACT stop slaughter of America’s horses domesticated and wild.

Originally posted on The PPJ Gazette:

I hope that everyone notes this same story is being played out all over the world.  The petition to stop the culling of the less than 1,000 wild horses remaining in Alberta, Canada needs signatures.  We’re asking our readers to help out and sign this:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/311/562/915/

311562-1387553127-wide

It is believed that there are blood lines in the wild horses, dating back to the Spanish Barb, or even ancient blood lines.  If those rare blood lines are removed indiscriminately in a cull, they will be lost forever.  Canada and the world will lose a unique heritage animal.  Biologists, photographers, tourists and future generations will lose the opportunity to study and experience these rare wild horses (often referred to as Wildies).

According to the Alberta government there’s less than 1000 horses remaining, in an area of 8500 sq km.  Despite these low numbers, they claim there are too many horses competing with the…

Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC Website Is Now Live

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

In August of 2013 I started the process of pulling a team together to help me create my own business, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.  I am excited to share that I am going back to work and I am the owner of my business with the ability to have a physical disability, coach, consult and train the owner world-wide from my computer to their computer. GOD is amazing!

I am so excited as for the longest time I would pray GOD would release me from the pain and suffering from the semi-truck accident and one day last March my doctor found the medicine to help with the back spasms and neuropathy in my feet.  I can hardly believe I am writing this post as it is a dream come true for me to not only be able to go back to work but most importantly do my passion. Train the human to train the donkey, horse or mule using resistance free methods and without abuse while staying safe. So many people think donkeys and mules are stubborn and lazy. This is simply not true. Donkeys and mules are smarter than most humans. :) Unlike the horse who will run when scared the donkey will Usually not Always stop and not move when scared. Most donkeys are introverts and they need us humans to understand them before proceeding with training.  I never train my extroverted horse Miss Lily the same way I do my donkeys. She is a horse.  Donkeys are not horses with long ears, donkeys are donkeys.  This is why I created “ON DONKEY TIME” metal art signs to help people remember they need to have things slowed way down.

Here is my new website http://donkeywhispererfarm.com/ take a look and let me know what you think. Please do not be shy, share a comment. I am so grateful to all of my readers of the Donkey Whisperer Farm blog as you have helped me stay connected to the world in one of my most darkest times. Surviving the semi-truck accident was very difficult to say the least, blogging and meeting so many of you wonderful people all over the world has not only brought a smile to my face you have helped me heal from the inside out. For this I am truly grateful.

Now I am learning about taxes, CPA’s, book-keeping and much more.  I am so excited to own the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC as this is my business and I pray I can make a huge difference in our world, change how people think and train donkeys, horses and mules.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
