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.

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

Two Mammoth Donkeys Looking For New Forever Homes, SEQUIM, WA


Dear Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

I have met Michelle and she is a wonderful woman, giving her mammoth donkeys the best home possible. These donkeys do have laminitis but I can help you with diet, paddock and more to repair. We cannot afford to rescue, adopt or purchase any more dogs, cats, donkeys, mules or horses. I do however help network and find great forever homes.

Please if you are interested in these two Mammoth donkeys contact Michelle Moss at immoss1@yahoo.com Sequim, WA.IMGA0149

Hi Melody,  Hope all is well with you and your donkeys.  I don’t know whether I told you that I’d bought land on Roupe Rd.  Will move after my house sells. 

Only an acre+ because I had decided that my riding days were over.  My donks were never aggressive or acted up while I worked with their feet during the episodes of Laminitis, but I realized that I was no longer strong enough to deal with large livestock.  That and my diminishing sense of balance forced the decision. 

My boys need new homes with people who are willing to watch their diets.  They have been fine now for months —  neither lameness nor medication.  If you would like them  I’ll give them to you because I know you understand their problem.  I can provide you with their x-rays and the vets’ tel. numbers.  I think Cowboy would be ideal for somebody lacking in confidence who wanted a safe mount for pleasure riding. 

Spanky is a pretty animal who I suspect, with a bit of experience, would be good on trails and possibly shows.  Both are about 14 — 14:1 hands,  OK if you sell them to others.  All I ask is that you make a decided effort to make sure any  future owners are capable, reliable people who care about their animals.  If you aren’t interested, please pass my email address on to any potential owners.    

Thanks,   Michelle

Wild Horse Found Shot in Utah

“Harassing, capturing or killing wild horses is illegal,”

The Bureau of Land Management is investigating the killing of a wild horse found dead from a gunshot wound in Millard County, Utah.

A $2,000 reward has been posted for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who fired a small-caliber bullet and killed the 14-year-old palomino stud.

Responding to a report from a local resident, BLM officers found the dead horse near Middle Pond in the Swasey Herd Management Area about 40 miles west of Delta. Volunteers last saw the animal alive July 5. The body was found July 7.

The area is on the eastern flank of the House Range, north of U.S. Highway 6. The herd is named for Swasey Peak, the range’s highest point.

Fanning the flames in the investigation is the well…
