Next comes the road and the preparation for the new barn, outdoor arena, round pen, electricity and septic tank.  GOD is amazing as he is helping us manage all of these projects.  If you are new to my blog we purchased twenty acres in Sequim, Washington last August with nothing on it except two pear trees, one apple tree and irrigation to grow our own low sugar orchard hay.

Our current turn-key five acre equestrian farm is for sale in May of 2014. Please share with anyone wanting to relocate to western Washington.

We will be planting the hay very soon so stay tuned.

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!

The Fence Work Begins

The Fence Work Begins

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

The new Donkey Whisperer Farm is moving along, since I enjoy blogging I thought it would be fun to share and document as we transform this beautiful land into our home, equestrian and hay facility.  “The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.” 

Thank you Jesus!

We have a physical address, a road permit and the parameter fencing has started!  GOD has blessed us with some super nice new neighbors Fred and Dorthy who have been gracious enough to share all of these photo’s with us. Thank you so very much! I selected the same green color stain as my current outdoor arena for the posts and top rail to hold the fencing in place.

riorocketman2012july

We use the red brand horse fencing as this is the safest equine fence in addition this fence stops predators from coming in. Our new farm has two pear trees, one apple tree and one willow tree, the rest is farm land with three roads against the property.  So my sweet husband Scott ordered a potty station for the men working to build our fence.  :)

Trust GOD For Everything As Life Is Fragile and Precious


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

newfarmphoto1

We have been having the most amazing summer in the Pacific Northwest after three years of hardly any summer finally GOD shined on the Pacific Northwest.  The screws in my pelvis like the warm dry weather and this helps me in combination with the medicine the doctor has changed most recently. Select Life is Fragile and Precious to read more.

“Never give up keep praying and asking GOD to give you your miracle I had to wait three years for the doctors to find the right medicine to help me with the pain and spasms.”  GOD gave the doctors the idea and I am now living a much easier life.

I remember praying to GOD to let me ride again, go out to eat after 5:00pm, cook again, walk without pain, work in my garden a bit and much, much more.  I am pleased to say I can ride small amounts of time and this is no doubt helping my core muscles and most important my emotions and mind.  I truly believe riding is going to strengthen my core muscles as nothing else has been able to do it.  I can only walk but it is wonderful to be up and on my equine again.  I tried to do a little jog on my horse but it is too much jarring I miss being able to trail ride for three and four hours and oh how I miss cantering my horse.  Perhaps GOD will give these back to me one day too?

melodygettingonrionewsaddle2013

I trained Miss Lily and Rio to stand and not move when I get on and get off.  I am so happy I trained her and spent the time with this over and over.  Why?  It is very difficult for me to swing my leg up over the saddle to get on and to swing it to get off.  My horse and Donkey both stand perfectly for me, thank you Jesus!

LILYMELODYSMILINGGGGOODJOB

After three years of not getting to ride my horse and Mammoth donkey I had fear touch me.  I feel the need to share fear started to take over in my mind as I am in pain each and every day and must take pain medication to control it.  I give all the glory to GOD as I pray GOD will keep me safe and let me do what I love to do safely with no accidents.

The semi-truck accident happened while riding as a passenger with a friend who ran a stop sign by accident, not from riding my horse or donkey!

I can honestly say to you “If you have something you want to do with your life get going as life is fragile and precious.”  Before the accident I was able to get on my horse without a step.  Work in my garden, clean my own house, dance, run, ride bikes, swim, hike, snow shoe and much, much more.  Oh how I miss standing in the river fishing with my husband probably will never get to do this again.  At least I have the memory I tried as many things as I could.

Melody Kissing Rio

My grandmother is 93 and at the end of her life I love her so very much.

FALLSPRETTY2013

 “If you spend any time with a person at the end of their life they will always tell you the same thing over and over. I wish I would  have spent more time doing ——– ——- ————– ————- ———- you can fill in the blanks.”

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