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

IMG_6718mammoth rope halter lead line brass snap leather endIMG_6676IMG_6544IMG_6066

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.

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 share honestly why the Parelli home study program works for my horse and donkeys. I teach my classes not any of the professionals listed above.

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

Do You Know What Plants Are Poisonous For Your Horse, Donkey or Mule?


OLD POST – 2012

Owning a small farm is a dream come true as I had been praying to GOD to own a horse again since I was a teenager, GOD answered my prayers in my late forties.  I am here to say “Nothing is impossible with GOD in Jesus Christ precious name” living on a  farm is indeed a gift from GOD and I am forever grateful for GOD’s favor and blessings. It is my pleasure to share information and a few photos with you. Enjoy!

Watching our beloved equine do one of their most favorite things, graze and munch away on good clean low sugar hay is a wonderful thing, it is truly a blessing.   For me listening to them chomp away on safe low sugar hay has a similar relaxation feeling as listening to the ocean as it calms my soul.   The farm girl is forever deep instilled in my soul, thank you Jesus.

 Here are a few links for Western Washing toxic plants:

Apples and Pears Are Ripe In Sequim, WA


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

Apple Season has arrived! As great as they may be for humans this is not great for the domesticated Donkey, Mule or Horse. In fact this may cause DEATH from Colic and/or a huge amount of stress, tears, vet cost or even burying the beloved equine (Donkey, horse or mule).

Never feed grass clippings or bread to your horse, donkey or mule. PLEASE NEVER FEED ANOTHER ANY ANIMAL THAT IS NOT YOUR ANIMAL. Some animals have a form of insulin resistance, most must have a slow change of diet or they can founder, hoof rots out abscess or colic or worse die. 

Select grass clipping

Donkeys, Horses and Mules get Sick, belly aches and gas from eating too many apples! Eating too much human food can increase their risk for colic.boysballoons2015

This is one of the most important posts I can write. I will do my best to write it in a way to educate and not offend people as the equine (donkey, horse or mule) need us humans to learn. In fact their lives depend on it!

When you drive by a farm please do not make your hot rod scare the equine as they can and do run through a fence in fear. Not to mention the vet bill for falling down and possibly breaking a leg. Please do not throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, grass clippings, beer bottles or garbage over the fence at the farm animals. Legal Action will be taken if you cause harm to any farm.

Horses, donkeys and mules will die of colic if not treated quickly! Bread will get wrapped in their intestine and they can die.

IMG_4844

Over feeding of sugar for the desert equine the donkey is a NO, NO. These donkeys are on strict diets or they should be in domestication as they evolved from the desert. Meaning they can’t eat tons of sugar products. They really need a diet of low sugar/protein hay, clean water, a buddy, no sugar vitamin and toys. Our hay is tested to come in at 7% sugar.

Our equine (donkeys and horses) have their teeth done, vet care, hoof care and eat a strict diet. In fact we cut their pasture down low so they really don’t get any nutrition out of our farm land.

Why? Our farm is not planted with the right hay for the easy keeper the donkey yet. One day we will plant and use our irrigation, not today.

IMG_20150506_094435

 Please never stop and feed any equine (animal) anything without the permission of the owner.

Throwing apples or any food over the fence of an equestrian farm can cause death or a huge vet bill for the owners not to mention emotional stress, tears. Equine can die from colic!!!!!

If your equine live near any fruit tree keep them away from the tree. If your equine live near a road of city folks place signs, PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE Donkeys, Horses and video cameras. This will help.

IMG_4811

We have video surveillance on the Donkey Whisperer Farm and signs stating DO NOT FEED THE HORSES AND DONKEYS and still I have to tell people not to feed my equine. This is a huge problem and one I think most people who do not own equine just do not understand. You think you are sharing love, in fact you could kill the sweet Donkey, Horse or Mule living near you.

Thank you for sharing and caring!
Rio Johnson the Mammoth donkey, our three mini donkeys and two rescue standard donkeys, two horses.
