We Are Living Art, Created To Hang On, Stand Up and Encourage Others – Maya Angelou

We Are Living Art, Created To Hang On, Stand Up and Encourage Others – Maya Angelou

Welcome,

I have loved animals since I was a small child, got the fever for horses at the tender age of five. I fell deeply in love with donkeys and mules In my late forties.  My love for donkeys, and mules forced me to learn as much as possible for them.

“I quickly found a huge gap in education, health and training for these majestic equine, the under dog of the equine world a donkey.”

Why? Donkeys and mules do not bring in large amounts of money like race horses, cutting, dressage.

Donkeys are unique they deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and natural training techniques, no bit, no spurs no abuse. 

RocketMan2012age18

Please remember “training a donkey is a challenge to learn and understand how to best communicate and train them as they do not learn like a horse.”   Donkeys are not horses with long ears. Donkeys require us humans to think like a donkey or mule and wait another day for training as donkeys are on donkey time, kinda like being a human in Hawaii everything is slowed way down.  Unlike the horse the donkey or mule can think all the time, Donkeys are always on donkey time. Slow way down when working with a donkey or mule, sit down and wait for them to come to you.

I have been a student of the Parelli home study program since 2007 right after purchasing my horse (a young filly at twenty months not trained), a nine month old baby mammoth donkey (not trained) and a mini donkey at the age of thirteen. I share honestly why the Parelli home study program works for my horse and donkeys. I am not authorized to teach Parelli as I am not an instructor.

After three short lessons with the Parelli carrot stick Rio now has steering – No bit, no spurs

I am married to my best friend and husband Scott and forever grateful to him for helping me keep my dream of farm living in the midst of trauma.  We share our life with one Mammoth donkey, three mini donkey, two rescue standard donkeys, two horses, three dogs and two cats.  Our new farm in Sequim, Washington has twenty acres, two horses, two mini donkeys, two standard donkeys and one Mammoth donkey. I am very grateful for all of the blessings and gifts GOD has provided me and my husband as each day is truly a gift, life is truly fragile and precious. 

Jesus Christ is amazing! Most importantly I share why Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and how my husband and I trust GOD to hold us tight in the middle of trauma. GOD is amazing.

Donkeys, horses and mules are healing they help us humans step out of our personal journey in life.  To know a donkey will forever change the human who wants to learn and love again.   Take a look at this article explaining the donkey much better than I can from Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue.

I  am a survivor of a life threatening motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger when the driver of the vehicle I was in ran a stop sign, a semi truck fully loaded with cow manure smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting leaving me permanently disabled.  Select GOD created a miracle for me to read about the trauma and blessings.  After surviving a life threatening car accident so many things change, we continue to thank GOD that our relationship with Jesus Christ is strengthened and reinforced.  

We continue to thank GOD for his Miracle of life and healing one day at a time.  When I am pressed on every side by troubles, I am not crushed and broken.  When I am perplexed because I don’t know why things happen as they do, I don’t give up and quit. 2nd Corinthians 4:8 I pray my transparency gives you hope and the ability to never give up most importantly make Jesus Christ you Lord and Savior.  The bible is still my favorite book. 

Animals are very healing, they help us humans be grateful for everything in our life and live in the moment. LILRUNNING2012AGE7

FOR SALE Donkey Rope Halter/Lead Lines, Brass Snap, Leather End


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

10169227_995938383757242_1970785558444709948_n[1]

Want to order your custom hand-made in the USA rope halter, lead line, brass snap leather end?

Select Our Store to order your rope halter.

standard rope halter

Notice how well the halter fits, with the beautiful yacht rope and a brass snap. This is quality at an affordable price, each is handmade by a contractor I hired in the United States Of America. Wash in a bucket of warm soap water. Never molds.

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY EVER WHEN NOT IN ATTENDANCE TO PREVENT DEATH OR AN INJURY.

Why Do I Train With A Rope Halter?

Have you ever seen a dog dragging a human down the beach with a harness on? This is what a flat halter does for training it does not train. Most people add a chain under the chin as they have no control with the flat halter. My halter fit’s your donkey and will help you train your donkey faster.

This halter does not fit Rio correctly, my new halter will it is on its way! Will share as soon as I receive it. :)

LOOK IN THE SKY, LOOKS LIKE A CROSS

Jupiter and Venus Dancing In The Sky Tonight:

If you missed the “Star of Bethlehem” phenomenon last night it will still be possible to see this clear and spectacular display for the next few days as Jupiter and Venus dance in the night sky. The best time to view is just after dark, looking just above the horizon to the North/North-West.

“Star Of Bethlehem” Visible on June 30th for the First Time in 2,000 Years.

On June 30th, Jupiter and Venus merged into what is known as a super-star.

The conjunction of these two planets has been building throughout the month of June and the result will be a dazzling bright spectacular on June 30th.

Sky & Telescope suggest that a similar rare conjunction of Venus and Jupiter may have been what was known as the “Star of Bethlehem” in 3-2 BC and since then there has not been a brighter, closer planetary conjunction. That means that this is the first opportunity of seeing it so clear for 2,000 years!

Miss Lily is watching the hay get made and taken away as we cant feed this high sugar/protein hay to our donkeys and horses. I consult world-wide on how to create a paradise paddock and grow or test your hay before purchasing.
