Many people love fall naturally as the colors of the leaves are so bright. Summer is now a distant memory one more time, I sadly say goodbye to my summer clothes. Some of us take time to learn to appreciate fall, I fall into the second category. Living in the Pacific Northwest my entire life has taught me a thing or two. Winter is coming. Shorter sunshine days and rain and snow. I am physically disabled a survivor of a life threatening car accident, my body does not like the cold and damp weather. We are about to enter our second fall living in our forever home. God is amazing as he takes a horrible situation and makes a beautiful story. Never give up. Never.
My husband and I created the Donkey Whisperer Farm in 2013. We purchased the raw land and established the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business in 2013. We built everything on our land for the donkeys, horses and dogs first. Everything! We moved into our 5th wheel and lived in the R.V. for three years during the housing and economic U.S.A. depression. Finally the economy took off again and we sold our home. Our journey was truly a long one, full of trials and smiles. A little down time is soon to come on the farm and for this we give thanks.
Our donkeys and horses need a little more attention during the damp season. The donkeys are playing more now that fall has arrived, grabbing the neck, biting the heels and playing tug. The mares (horses) seem to be smelling winter is coming too. They are much quicker now and not so lethargic as just a few weeks ago we were in the 80’s, All of the donkeys and horses are growing their fur coats and one more season is about to erupt. Yesterday as I was feeding I could see all of the donkeys and horses breath again. Yes, fall is here.
2018 seems to have flown by so fast. Part of getting older is noticing time. I love life and the animals bring us so much joy, peace and love. Most importantly a purpose each and every day. God made each human to have gifts, dreams and goals. We were made to move. Never to sit idle and waste our lives away. The farm brings such purpose and satisfaction. I thank GOD in Jesus Christ name for each and every special day we get to have on our farm.
We pick up the poop every single day on the farm and we compost, the poop is spread out on the hay field in the fall. We will plow the hay field this year and plant orchard hay seed. Looking forward to harvesting this low sugar/protein hay and stacking in our barn.
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TWO AND FOUR-LEGGED!
The Donkey Whisperer Farm has had a year of milestones! Truly blessing after blessing as we prayed, planned and worked really hard on each project. Our little farm business has been selling donkey, mule, pony, and even Zonk halter/lead lines hand made with soft yacht rope worldwide. We now sell riding reins too. The big news! The Donkey Whisperer Farm fiberglass stick and string to touch your donkey not hit your donkey. I designed each stick and string to be a perfect training tool. The tip is leather not rubber. Rubber pulls the hair on the donkey defeating the goal of teaching the donkey to trust the human. Each stick and string is hand made in the U.S.A. When you purchase from the Donkey Whisperer Farm you can expect quality 100% of the time in combination with outstanding customer service. We provide only the best for you and your donkey.
A large percentage of donkeys that end up at shelters, auctions and slaughter houses have been abandoned because they were difficult to handle or could not be trained. Our vision is that EVERY donkey find its forever home. Our prayer is that your donkey stays with you forever.
We are selling these training tools with Donkey 102 worldwide. Donkey 101 E-VIDEO Series and now Donkey 102 E- VIDEO Series is selling worldwide. People who own donkeys can learn how to train the donkey and take me Melody Johnson to the farm via any smart device. This is a GOD accomplishment. I train the owner or caretaker to train the donkey worldwide using resistance free methods. Never abuse. Select Donkey Whisperer Farm to take a look at what we are doing for the donkeys living in our world and the people who own them and care for them.
2018 we watched our privacy trees grow before our eyes. We are excited to have privacy and very soon. Moving into a farm field with no privacy has been a challenge. The beautiful trees love the sunshine and our irrigation water from the Dungeness river. God is amazing.
So many farm projects and the animals well they give us the strength and motivation to keep working and pressing forward. Farm life is hard work. Rewarding and emotionally challenging. Winter may seem like a time to rest for most people, working with equine is a full-time job, 12 months a year and twenty-four hours a day. We love the farm life, not for everyone but for us this is a gift as life is fragile and precious. We know we will never get this day back again. The animals need full-time care, hooves need even more attention as the wet weather brings challenges.
The donkeys, horses, dogs and kitty are all doing great. 2018 has been a wonderful year full of milestones. We are now putting up our hay ourselves. Working hard to prepare the hay field for 2019. We will plant 100% orchard hay for our equine to eat. Watching the hay leave our farm we grow and work so hard to get baled has been really hard. Donkeys cannot eat alfalfa hay without getting obese and sick.
2019 GOD willing we will have 100% orchard hay to put in our barn. Low sugar/protein hay has become really expensive in the Pacific Northwest. We are excited to start production of this healthy hay beginning with our donkeys and horses.
Take a virtual tour around the Donkey Whisperer Farm. Enjoy!

Please do not throw any food, grass clippings or garbage over the fence!
Apples… kill horses, donkeys and mules. When you throw out a box of apples and they eat several, the apples can cause painful colic and possibly death. You may not notice because it happens hours later when the apples start to digest. They could colic or die in the middle of the night and you might never know the damage you did. Equine do not have the ability to throw up food once they ate it.
Why grass clippings are bad
But why is cut grass bad for horses? It doesn’t seem to make sense, since they eat mostly the same grass on the other side of the fence and the hay we feed is just cut and dried grasses. But even though the grass may technically be the same variety, it’s not the same as a fresh mouthful in your pasture or hay that’s been properly cured. The issues:
- Grass from your lawn may contain fertilizers or anti-weed (herbicide) or anti-insect (pesticide) chemicals that should not be consumed by horses.
- Recently cut grass doesn’t dry uniformly, leaving wet clumps that can ferment and grow mold and mildew. Microbes introduced this way can cause colic in horses. Unlike lawn clippings, hay grass is tetted and sometimes re-tetted (spread out evenly in a thin layer) and dried/cured in the field before baling.
- A mouthful of small cuttings may be quickly consumed by a horse. The small, wet clumps can compact and stick in a horse throat. Hay or fresh grass is chewed in manageable amounts.
- The horse digestive system works best with consistent feeding. It adapts well but not quickly (as in day-to-day). Sudden shifts can lead to digestive problems and laminitis.
