Happy 10th Birthday Jewel

Jewel is a rescue I found as a puppy in our home town of Kingston, Washington.  It seems like yesterday that I brought her home wiggling, and extremely busy.  Jewel has been my most special dog ever, she and I are very connected and when GOD takes her to heaven it will be very difficult for me.  I love her so very much!

Jewel is 70 years old in people years now and she is having pain with arthritis in her hips, I give her medicine from our vet and it helps but her muzzle is gray now and she has slowed down.  Seems our dogs do not live long enough they are here for such as short time, angels sent for us humans.  When I was at my darkest time stuck in the wheel chair, sleeping in the lazy boy for over four months she would never leave my side as she knew I was hurting.

Pets are truly special and unique they are given to humans as gifts from Jesus to help us navigate this thing called life. Jewel loves her ball, most of my photos she has the ball, whenever I get my shoes on she has one paw on my foot. I love you Jewel!

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

Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC Opens For Virtual Training on Jan, 1st 2014


ondonkeytimetelastandsrocketman4In the evening while standing on our new twenty acre farm we can see the sunset to the right and the moon to the left.  The main attraction is the Olympic Mountains and Hurricane Ridge directly in front of where we plan to build our new one story home.

GOD is amazing never give up, if you stay in faith he will give you double for your troubles.  I am disabled for the rest of my life but not dead. Select GOD created a miracle for me.   GOD has found a way for me to go back to work I am so excited.  Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC opens for business on January 1st, 2014.

Want to see the Draft new website?

E-commerce will be added by Key bank by the time we launch this new business on January 1st, 2014, no need to use pay-pal I am so excited.  Select Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC for a look into the seed GOD planted in me as a little girl to be an equine trainer.  I am different as I train you how to train your equine one-on-one from the comfort of your own home.  No need to travel or send your donkey, horse or mule off to a trainer. You can do this! 

Our new farm will have one Mammoth donkey Mr. Rio, two mini donkeys (Rocket Man gets another black and white gelding) and his own paradise paddock. Dry with some stumps, shelter, salt, water.  Rio gets Obo and Tuba to live with in his dry paradise paddock same as Rocket Man.  Miss Lily gets a beautiful black saddle bred mare named Trophy to run and play with on her paradise paddock with grass. Donkeys are desert equine they require us humans to think out of the box when building their domesticated living arrangements in lush areas such as the Pacific Northwest. Donkeys can not eat green grass, brush and stay healthy.  I test my hay before purchasing for the year and I keep them on a controlled diet so they stay healthy.

Please remember donkeys are not horses with long ears, donkeys are donkeys!

Our Last Fall On The Donkey Whisperer Farm – Kingston, Washington


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

We have been living on our current five acre farm for thirteen years now, my dream came true in 2007 when we brought Rio (mammoth donkey), Rocket Man(mini donkey) and Miss Lily my quarter horse mare home.
 
I am indeed a master gardener with GOD’s help, I planted every plant and ornamental tree and I prayed over each one. We cut every tree and chopped every log into firewood by hand to build the two 12 x 16 walk in barns and the large paddock.  We hired out some work for the two pole barns and hired help to build the arena but most of this farm was created by my husband Scott and me.  We took a dream and made it into reality, GOD is amazing!

In 2001 GOD blessed us with a diamond in the rough our current five acre home, I saw the opportunity to build an equestrian farm and my husband has enjoyed his 2,300 square foot garage below our home a real man cave with a pellet fireplace. Our farm/home is now finished and is truly one the best buys you will find in our area, this farm is a private oasis a turn-key equestrian farm.
 
All you have to do is move in and bring your kids, dogs, and equine as all the hard work has been completed.
 
Our Kingston, Washington farm comes with video surveillance, alarm system and the video surveillance is set-up so we can check in our home, farm and equine anywhere in the world anytime.  The camera’s are placed in the barns and paddock so I can tack a vacation and have peace of mind.  One of the most stressful things about leaving our farm is wondering if the farm animals are being cared for and healthy, this system gives me peace of mind. I was an information technology project manager before retiring early and getting back into equine.
 
When it is time to take a vacation we hire a person to feed the equine and use our smart phones with an automatic e-mail letting us know when someone has come into the farm. Giving us peace of mind all the equine are safe and cared for.  We are the second owner of our 1992 home, each and every room has been updated, leaving the new owner with no projects, a retreat and private farm surrounded by beautiful old growth trees and wildlife.  It will be hard to leave all my plants but I have learned to look forward and not look back, GOD is doing a new thing now, my body needs a rambler.  
 
Our current home/farm is located three miles from the Edmonds ferry and fifteen minutes from the Bainbridge Island ferry, a gorgeous two-story home, sitting up high our home over looks the two walk in barns, paddock and outdoor arena.  We are only four miles from 5k acres of equestrian trail riding and is a prime location to work in Seattle, Edmonds, Bremerton, Bainbridge Island,  Bangor and Keyport. Riding a ferry to work every day is beautiful and relaxing when going into Seattle, I should know as I made this commute from 1989 to 2005. Living in the country is a relaxing and helps the body and mind re-charge. I am excited for whomever gets to live in our home as this is truly a unique home.
  

May 1st, 2014 our Kingston farm will go on the market and we will move to our new twenty acre farm in Sequim, Washington. 

If you know anyone moving to the Pacific Northwest and they are looking for a turn-key equestrian home with six garages let me know at Melody@donkeywhisperer.com. We will be hiring a real-estate agent next spring to handle all the legal logistics of the sale of our current home and farm.

Notice the nice dry cover between the two 12 x 16 stalls (rubber mats, electricity and video cameras inside) – This space is where I do all my grooming, vet care, and farrier work.  Covered with electricity and water for easy clean-up.
