Why GOD Why?

Why GOD Why?

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

For those of you who are new to my blog I want to say thank you for reading and for those who have been following my journey in this thing called life since 2010, I really appreciate each and every one of you.

My health update:

I continue to suffer from severe nerve damage in my hips, back and feet suffer from spasms in my ribs still, back pain wakes me up every morning it is never quiet, pain sucks and is most likely not going away as last spring marked four years since the semi-truck accident. Select GOD created a miracle for me to read all about it. I no longer go to physical therapy (3 years I attended) as each day is physical therapy living on our farm. Massage therapy is a need not a want and I go once a week this helps tremendously as does our hot tub. My grandma who is ninety-four constantly says to me “You have bitten off too much again, dear Melody”, my answer is always the same; “If I do not keep moving, I fear the pain will force me to a wheel chair.”  Every day is a challenge my husband and I continue to believe that GOD in Jesus Christ name will take this pain away and one day I will indeed be pain-free. I have not been pain-free since April 12th, 2010.

Building our farm in Sequim, WA has been amazing and most difficult, smiles and tears side-by-side

Trying to get contractors to show up and do a good job is not easy. Trusting a contractor to do the job correctly and then having to fire them when they lie or they are not competent in the work is very stressful and it costs more money. Every project we have started except a few has been beyond stressful.  Seems GOD keeps us on our knees for each and every favor and when things do not go right I am honestly going to say I have lost my peace. I try so hard to not lose my peace but when people lie and steal from us and we have a very small income coming in to create this dream it is hard to not get upset. I am very grateful to have Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior as I can not navigate this thing called life alone.

Living In Our 29ft 5th Wheel

We have been living in our 5th wheel since June 1st, 2014. I can honestly say we do not need much in life to enjoy life but I do miss my king size bed.  :) We have two people who are serious about the house/farm for sale in Kingston, WA. Select Turn-key Equestrian Dream, Kingston, WA Soon this beautiful farm will sell and we will start to build our last home a one story home as we are in our fifties now and I must plan for arthritis to get worse as I age. I dream of the day we get to turn the key and walk into our home, I know GOD is fateful but waiting is one of the most hardest things to do when we have endured so much hardship for so long. Today marks four and half years since our life was turned upside down by the semi-truck accident and I can honestly say it has seemed like ten years.

Marriage

I have been with my hubby Scott for almost twenty-two years now, time does fly!  I do believe that living in our twenty-nine foot fifth wheel with three dogs, hubby, and my two rescue cats is easy on the one had as cleaning the 5th wheel takes five minutes when we both go to work together. I always think the best first and work on keeping my mind on the payoff when things are tough.  I will never again complain about cleaning my house as I miss my things, I miss having a place for everything and so we wait on GOD to sell the house in Kingston, WA. Our marriage is strong, stronger than before the car accident as we never take one another for granted. This does not mean we do not disagree it simply means we do not hold a grudge and move on.  We trust GOD to sell the house in his time and for whatever reason the farm has not sold yet, soon I feel it will sell. Money, space, trust, friendship, love is all part of a good marriage along with planning dreams together. My husband Scott and I plan each and everything we can and when GOD changes our plans we say thank you Jesus even when it hurts to wait or have our plans changed. We work as a team and this is truly the key to a great marriage. My husband Scott is indeed my soul mate, my best friend first and my husband second and we are similar in many way but different in how we react to stress. I am an extrovert and he is an introvert, I think most marriages end up this way as we are attracted and need what the other has. My hubby Scott put so many fence posts in he had hernia surgery last month and this was very stressful, thank you Jesus he is recovering fast and had very little pain.

ReALWOMAN

My Life After GOD Saved Me From Death

I will never, never be the same as before the semi-truck accident not physically as I am forever physically disabled with three huge screws in my pelvis. But also emotionally and mentally. I find myself wanting things done instantly as I am fifty-four now and I lost three years of my life. I can ride a little but not very long as my ribs spasm and my lower back hurts. I still have not attempted to canter and oh how I miss cantering on my horse, we use to go for four-hour trail rides three times a week I do not know if I will ever get to go for a trail ride again. Still GOD is great as I can ride on the twenty acres, I slide the lazy suzan door around and walk my horse and Mammoth donkey up to the steps and go ride. No hauling anywhere just go ride. I have learned to enjoy every second of every day as much as possible and never to take anything or anyone who is good to me and my family two and four-legged for granted as these people are rare in our most fragile and stressed world.

Hot Air Balloons

Flew over our farm low and scared Rio our mammoth donkey so bad he would not come out of the barn for over three hours. My horses could have run through the fence if I did not keep them calm.  Shortly after this low flying loud fire balloons with tourist taking photos of our little farm my horse Miss Lily got the hives and she has had them way to long so if you pray, pray for Miss Lily to get healthy again please. The immune system in equine is just like us people fragile and for her stress triggers hives, this is causing me stress as I am trying so hard to get her well. I sent an e-mail to the hot-air balloon company and asked them to please never fly low over our our farm again and the owner was very compliant and seemed to understand the fear the balloons caused our farm equine.

Doggies

Our three dogs are getting old and it is hard to watch my female Jewel limp and ache so bad as I know one day I will have to bury her under the pear tree. Seems dogs do not live long enough, they are so special. All are happy and seem to not mind having to sleep on a very small bed they just want to be with me and my husband and well I think they would be ok living in the car with us. We are a family two and four-legged, our bond is so tight. Still when I leave for fifteen minutes the dogs are scared as they all have anxiety I will not return as the semi-truck accident is still on their mind. They worry I will not come home again each time I step out the door and no matter what I do they seem to not forget that life is fragile and their mom may not come home again. Animal trainers say animals live in the moment I say animals can get PTSD as my dogs have it.

Age

My mind feels like I am in my forties but my body feels like it is one hundred most days, I can’t bend, twist, dance or spin any more. My suggestion to anyone living with any kind of disability and pain is to keep getting up. Each day is a new day, today may be the day GOD brings a break-thru and the pain and suffering may go away physical or emotional. I recently took a Facebook test on your age and my age came out to thirty-three and yet I am trapped in a fifty-four year old broken body. Arthritis in every bone that broke and lot’s broke. Neuropathy in my feet and yet GOD places a huge smile on my face each and every day as I could have died.

New Equine On Our Farm

We finally were able to bring home Oboe and Tuba if you read my blog way back to 2010 you will see I have been trying to get them home since 2008. Again I must say never give up and trust GOD for everything he planted the dreams in your heart. Both Oboe and Tuba have no paper-work and were very much in need of training and a human to touch them and love them each and every day. We also went looking for one mini donkey companion for Rocket Man our mini that is twenty now and my hubby let me bring home two mini’s Roy and Maximus. Maximus is a huge extrovert and a huge challenge and Roy is in my pocket after just a week of loving and my training plan. Roy was very sad when we met him and needed a special human to love him. God gave us Roy he is very special! A new horse, I have a new project mare named Miss Trophy and she is a black gorgeous saddlebred mare, she is very beautiful but needs time to trust me and learn to have the social skills needed to live in a domesticated world. One day I will learn dressage with this horse as she has a long neck and can stretch her long legs out with her small chest. Miss Lily my quarter horse is a true quarter horse and is built for speed and trails, she did do pretty good in dressage but this is not what she was bred to do. Lily and Trophy are now best friends forever and my horse is herd bound to the needs of an emotional horse crying for her. Still I am riding Miss Lily and she is doing much better at the short separation times. Both get exercise for a half hour or so that I go for a ride. Miss Lily lived with Rio and Rocket Man for seven years before we moved to our new farm in Sequim, WA.  Now Rio lives with Oboe and Tuba and Lily must not only protect herself but Miss Trophy.

Questions and Answers From Rio The Mammoth Donkey

Questions and Answers From Rio The Mammoth Donkey

 

rioage8afterbaloonscamelabordayweekendgorgeousshot

Hey did you know donkeys are really smart?

Did you know donkeys can think all of the time? Well most of the time while the horse can’t! Yes it’s true donkey evolved from the desert meaning they had to evolve to learn to think as they could not out-run the predator. The horse on the other hand uses his speed to survive the predator and when under stress/attack life or death will fart, poop and run.

What will the donkey do when stressed Usually not Always?

Stop and think about it and try to find a way to survive. Thus why the donkey is given the horrible name as stubborn when they are simply smarter than most humans who work with them.

What Can A Human Do To Help A Scared Horse, Donkey or Mule?

Be consistent with your training, voice, body language and never ever abuse the equine. Remember you chose the equine they did not choose you!

riooboetubascaredafterballons2014

How Long Will It Take For My Equine To Trust Me and Respect Me As A Leader?

This all depends on the personality of your equine, sex, age, past experiences with other humans and how you treat them each and every time you are with them.

3 mini

What Is The Easiest Age and Sex To Step Into The World Of Equine Husbandry?

“If you are brand new to owning an equine the age will be different for a donkey but you will need to be patient. If you are not patient and are in a hurry I suggest purchasing a donkey that is number one full-grown and number two tall enough to hold your weight. Perhaps a mule would be best if you need a super strong equine as 16’2 hand mammoth donkeys are difficult to find.”

Back to the question, remember my mom is typing for me but this is Rio the Mammoth Donkey talking to you!

The easiest donkey is a brand new youngster that has never been abused. A clean slate, like a child your baby donkey is physically, mentally and emotionally not an adult until they are FULL GROWN like me. What age are they full-grown this all depends on the size. A Mammoth donkey like me 16’2 can take six to seven years to be full-grown.  Have empathy, youngsters are just like you were as a baby they are children in the mind and physical strength.  Baby donkeys have very short attention spans and need small lessons in imprinting (touching them all over their body).  If this is not done at a young age it is more difficult as the donkeys body gets stronger and faster and yes we can out think you. :)

A male that is gelded after he has dropped ask a professional veterinarian who has experience with donkeys to explain this to you will be so much easier than a Jenny or in the horse world a filly/mare.

RIO2DAYS OLD

Why?

A  gelding does not have testosterone interfering with learning and wants to be your buddy, take a walk with you and hang out with you. Jacks (stallions horse world) want to dominate and reproduce. Jennies (mares horse world) have a few days a month they can be a challenge as well they have the estrus thing going on you know just like women have their periods. Moody, hurt with pain and can get short-tempered faster than us geldings. I know as I lived with Miss Lily my human moms quarter horse for seven years I am much happier living with Oboe and Tuba our two new rescue gelding (standard size) donkeys as well they are not so emotional. :)

sequim10192013 043tubabestphoto2014

Let’s Say You Are In A Hurry – You Want To Ride Now?  What sex and age is the easiest for beginners?

If you want to ride right now I would recommend a gelding in the horse or donkey, mule world between twelve and sixteen years old. Make sure your gelding has never been a stallion (you know having sex as this is called proud cut and can be more challenging for a beginner).  Choose a gelding that has been there and done that for all things you want to do. Oh one more thing; donkeys, horses and mules will test you to see if you are a good leader so make sure you get a coach.  Ask my mom Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC for more info.

riodonkeyhugbestage7

Never Make A Donkey, Horse Or Mule Live Alone

Why? We are herd equine and us donkeys need to play; we like to grab the neck of another donkey and if you force us to live with a smaller animal such as a pig, goat, baby sheep, cows etc., we can play rough and have been known to kill smaller animals. We are not evil we just play this way and prefer to play with our own species. ” I lived with Miss Lily (quarter horse mare) and Rocket Man a 20 year old mini donkey for seven years. Believe me Miss Lily is much more happy now that she has Miss Trophy to live with. Why? Miss Lily wanted to run and I did not want to run I am a Mammoth donkey. Miss Trophy loves to run.” Rocket Man lives with our two new mini donkeys now as well I was too rough with him I am just too big for him now.

Trophy2014age61333lily and tropybaloonhorseslabordayweekendbaloon

Any more questions

Ask my mom as I mentioned above she is a a world-wide virtual coach for humans who own or want to rescue, purchase and get into the farm business of equine husbandry. Wondering why I call it this? Domesticated equine need a human who will be a husband for us, trim our feet in the spring and summer (high growing time) every six to seven weeks. Winter we can go a few weeks longer! Have our teeth done once a year, Rocket Man had an abscess and he could have died if mom and dad did not take good care of us. Miss Lily had two teeth growing in one spot as a three-year old. Get the vet out at least once a year for a physical and shots. We domesticated equine need west, tetanus and the five way shots if you are exposing us to other equine.

Diet and Care For The Donkey?

We need our hay to be tested, come in below 10% sugar as we are from the desert remember how I told you this above? We need clean water, warm in the winter, a safe vitamin talk to your vet. We need shelter and we need a blanket in case we get sick or the weather is horrific we cant take it when it get’s in the 20’s we freeze to death and well some donkeys do die from extreme cold. If we are white and have pink on our lips we can get sunburned and even get skin cancer. We need our hooves picked out every day. We need kisses, hugs and a good ear rub but be careful as youngsters ears can be broken and never stand up again. What Time Of The Day Is The Safest To Let Us Graze? Morning.

ROCCKETMANSNOW202414AGE19rio2014snowfarmage7feb2014RIO&MELODYM

RIOAGE82014SUMMER

Flys

Please pick up the poop every day and compost it. We do not enjoy standing in our own poop and it brings flys. My mom uses fly predators ask her about them. Some times we need more help fly masks I like the ones with the strings on them and we need a fly sheet, even socks depending on where you live in the world.

Well that’s about it for now I am going back out to play and be a Mammoth Donkey! GOD really gave me a great forever home as I love my humans and my life. Have a great day!

One-hundred and sixty-one burros were listed on the BLM August internet adoption … and only FOUR even got a bid.  Does this sound like a high adoption demand and high adoption rate?  The BLM stated in their Cibalo-Trigo capture EA there was a “high adoption demand for wild burros, which is supported by a high adoption rate” for burros.  Is there anyone out there that still believes ANYTHING that the BLM says?

37 of the 63 wild horses that were advertised on the internet were adopted and that sounds like 37 got good homes … right?  Well, I can tell you from personal experience as a wild horse adopter that even after our repeated requests to complete the adoption paperwork, nobody from BLM visited…

Hot Air Balloons Flying Over The Donkey Whisperer Farm

Hot Air Balloons Flying Over The Donkey Whisperer Farm

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Living on our new farm in Sequim, Washington is a treat each and every day a blessing from Jesus Christ, yesterday was one special morning. The morning started out like all mornings on our farm and then at 8:30am our big dog a rescue started barking. We looked out the back of our 5th wheel windows top to bottom (temporary home) to see not one but two hot air balloons flying low over the farm. Wow!

Both my husband and I started running to get out of our jammies and find the camera. Here is a few shots of the photo’s we captured, we would so love to get some copies of what the passengers took of our new farm.  We moved to our twenty acres (GOD found for us) last summer with nothing on it except two pear trees, irrigation and one apple tree on June 1st, 2014. We have everything set-up for our eight equine now and we are waiting to sell our home and equestrian farm on five acres before building our last home. We are in our fifties now and this is indeed where we will live out the rest of our life.

Did You Know?

Sequim, WA was just voted one of the best places to retire in the United States Of America?

 Rio (Mammoth donkey 16’2 hands tall) is a huge introvert and it only took him about two minutes to decide the aliens in the sky with the fire-breathing machine might just eat him! Rio quickly started trotting back to the safety of his barn. Oboe and Tuba followed him but Oboe (extroverted) took his time.  Our new mare Miss Trophy started getting really scared and running so I walked up and calmed her down. A hot air balloon makes noise and is a bit scary to equine I did not want my horses to run through a fence.  After the balloons and loud fire-breathing aliens left the farm it took Rio three hours before he would go back out and eat on his pasture and I had to walk with him and help him feel safe. Poor Rio he is thinking , Where did we move to?
