BLM crawls into bed with Ranchers by removing wild horses to allow subsidized cow herders more profit

After months of being under pressure from local ranchers and the Iron County Commissioners to bring the number of wild horses on public lands down to the appropriate management levels, the Bureau of Land Management is slated to begin a wild horse gather on Monday.

The gather, which is happening within the Bible Spring Complex between July 28 and Aug. 5, is open to the public to allow them to view the daily operations so long as the safety of the animals, staff and observers are not jeopardized and operations are not disrupted.

The BLM said it plans to gather and remove some 140 horses…

In an effort to gather support for recent legislation introduced by Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT Iron County), Iron County Commissioner Dave Miller pushed a resolution through last week at the National Association of Counties that sends a resounding message back to Congress — let the states manage their own wild horses.

The resolution, which was also carried by County Commissioner Mark Whitney, Garfield County Commissioner Leland Pollock and Piute County Commissioner Darin Bushman, was unanimously passed by all 3,069 county members of NACo.

“It went through with very little to no debate,” Bushman said. “It was amazing.”

Stewart recently introduced…

The Olympic Mountains Are In Our Back Yard

The Olympic Mountains Are In Our Back Yard

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

My hubby Scott and I have been moving, building our new farm in Sequim, WA and preparing our farm for sale in Kingston, WA with very few breaks for almost three months.   We took a break today and went to our favorite places in the world; Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent and Solduc Hot Springs.  I highly recommend you add these places to your bucket list!

Update On My Health


I have not been able to go for trail ride on my horse or a hike since 2010, today was the first time in four years I was able to sit and walk long enough to go see my favorite places. Slowly but surely I continue to get stronger, I will never ever be pain-free again as my feet continue to go numb, back spasms and rib spasms are better but still they never let me forget that no matter how hard I push to get well I am forever physically disabled. The semi-truck accident changed everything in our life in a matter of seconds and yet we are a closer couple than ever before. Why? We cherish each and every day and are grateful for every little blessing GOD in Jesus Christ name gives us. We know GOD in Jesus Christ name is real as I am a miracle and my ability to be able to walk and not die after surviving the semi-truck accident is a blessing. GOD has the final decision on when we will die and if we will suffer with pain and loss in this thing we call life.  My husband and I choose to embrace each day with the precious gift of knowing we are blessed, we have been given favor. GOD gives his children favor and the ability to be strong in a very difficult thing called life.  

GOD blessed us with a gorgeous day, we continue to thank GOD for all of our blessings each and every day as even with my physical disability I am blessed and able to walk and enjoy home. The Pacific Northwest has been my home for most of my entire life. GOD is amazing!  If you ever get a chance to visit western Washington State be sure you come to Sequim, and the great Olympics, nothing in this world is more beautiful than home sweet home. The best time to come visit is May, August or September.

The Mom Deer Comes Back Four Years In A Row To Give Birth On Our New Farm In Sequim, WA

Our neighbors Fred and Dorthy took these photo’s for us of the mom deer, as she has returned to our farm for four years now to give birth to her babies before we put the fence up.  I felt sorry for the deer until she reminded me that the farmer who bailed the hay killed her babies last year and the bald eagles came in to eat the babies. She is too heavy with pregnancy to jump the fence and will now be forced to go to a safer place to give birth. Additionally, big dogs keep deer out of our yard so she would have had to move on anyway.  My neighbor told me she looked both ways before crossing the fast highway, animals are smart.

Moving to the new farm in Sequim, WA is going to be a dream come true as I was born in Washington State and I have many wonderful memories of Sequim back when it was all farm land. We are blessed to have the opportunity to own this beautiful twenty acre farm and with any luck I will get to see her and her babies when we move in soon. Thank you Jesus!
