“Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained” Melody Johnson, Trainer


Melody Johnson is a world-wide trainer, she teaches the owner how to train, care and keep the horse, donkey and mule living in balance with the owner. Most importantly she teaches the owner how to read the body language of the donkey, mule or horse.

Examples;

  • Naughty
  • Fearful
  • Bitting
  • Dragging the owner around
  • Will not come to the owner
  • Slamming the head into the owner
  • Will not stand for the vet or trimmer
  • Kicking (this can be dangerous)

Melody trains the owner how to train using resistant free humane training. No abuse ever. 

Please remember the equine did not choose you, you chose the equine. Seek professional help and start enjoying your farm.  Melody trains the owner to train. She teaches the owner to train themselves prevents donkeys, mules and horses from being sold to another home, auction or worse slaughter. 

“Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained.”

Leadership with no abuse is what she teaches the owner.

Keeping equine healthy in domestication takes having a plan. Timing, training tools, matching the energy, behavioral modification for both the owner and the equine are just a few of her resources.

Melody enjoys sharing her passion of living on the farm with donkeys and horses she loves mules too.

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.  

We are proud to announce we sell QUALITY rope halters, brass screw on snap with a leather end to fit a donkey not a horse.

“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.

Melody teaching Rio steering using no bit or spurs

I have been a student many home study programs, Parelli, Clinton Anderson, Chris Cox, Meredith Hodges, John Lions and more 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 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.   

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

Donkey and Horse Vital Signs, Health and Hoof


TROPHYLILYAGE6AND9CALENDARSHOTOCT2014

A donkey’s normal heartbeat or pulse rate is 35-55 per minute, depending on what it is doing, and its normal temperature is very close to a human’s at 35.8 to 37.5 deg C.  The table below, compiled by the Donkey Sanctuary, gives some of the variations.  A donkey seems to regulate temperature in much the same way as a human, too, as a donkey sweats for the same reasons that a human does.  A feverish donkey is therefore quite easy to detect.

AVERAGE

RANGE

36.2-37.8

young donkey

44-80

Respiration

(Inspiration per minute)

adult donkey

12-44

young donkey

16-48

Ways of scoring a donkey’s ‘body condition’ for general health have been devised, but as yet there is no general agreement as to the applicability of such a score.  Those who know donkeys can usually judge quite easily one which is in good condition, i.e. with coat shining, ears and eyes alert, movement easy, ribs and hip bones adequately covered with flesh, and no wounds.

There is another score for ‘wound and foot care’, but on the whole it does not offer more than good observation and common sense can provide.

What are the signs of a donkey being unwell ?

Among the signs of health trouble in a donkey are the following:

·           Fever (body sweat; muzzle hot and dry)

·           Loss of appetite

·           Drooping ears and maybe also a drooping head

·           Coat rough and dull looking

·           Dull eyes

·           Lack of energy and response

·           Frequently lying down

·           Liquid droppings (diarrhea, known as ‘scouring’)

·           Passing no droppings (constipation)

·           Wrong colours of droppings (i.e. signs of blood, although colour does vary a lot according to diet).

Donkeys on the whole do not show their feelings of pain in very obvious ways, but behave as a human would who is called ‘stoical’, i.e. tolerating pain without complaint.  They may make an initial violent movement of avoidance, but after that they become silent and as nearly as possible immobile in the face of pain and/or fear.  Therefore it is sometimes difficult to know when they are suffering acutely, and their behavior may look like ‘stubbornness’ rather than stoicism.  One indicator of pain or fear can be diarrhea, just as in humans.  Since this may also dehydrate the donkey, it will be adding to its problems if it persists.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Soon fall will come and the farm land will go to sleep again. The snow geese will travel by us again and so much more. We look forward to building our home. Perhaps GOD will bless us soon. We continue to pray for the favor to start building our home.

My husband and I have learned to trust GOD stay in faith and be patient. Our builder is a reputable builder here in Sequim, WA we look forward to watching and enjoying the process.

For now we continue to live in the 5th wheel, feed the wild birds, enjoy the sunrises, sunsets and all the animals on the farm. Living in Sequim, WA is a perfect oasis. We love our life. I pray you love your life too. Never Give Up! Trust GOD in Jesus Christ name as he is the alpha and omega, the beginning and end of all things.IMG_7017IRRIGATIONRUN2014APRIL
