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

“Yesterday as I was walking my horse to another pasture a very protective (select KillDeer bird) came out attacking me and my horse. She built her nest in our driveway. We placed traffic cones around her nest so as not to disturb her. I am excited to share these babies. Living on the new farm in Sequim, WA is a treat, a blessing, we thank GOD every day to get to live here.” Melody

One day we will have our hay planted, irrigation running. This is called a wheel line. Photo was taken on another farm in Sequim, WA. Farming is not easy and it takes GOD to create the miracle to make it happen. Thank you JESUS for the blessings and favor coming.

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Check out this blog for bird lovers and Jesus lovers!

Featured Image -- 32409

Originally posted on Lee's Birdwatching Adventures Plus:

While reading in Isaiah lately, I came across this verse:

“Seeing many things, but you do not observe; Opening the ears, but he does not hear.” (Isaiah 42:20 NKJV)

When Dan and I visit aviaries, we spend quite a bit of time in them. Yes, we are birdwatchers and do photography, but it still amazes me the ones who come in, look around as they walk through, and then leave. They may be in there five minutes. We are there for 30, 45, 60 minutes or longer, depending on the size of the aviary.

Me and my big mouth causes me to speak up and point out birds they just walked by and never saw. Most times it is appreciated, but there are times when the kids (especially) only want to see the “big” animals. Well, a 6 foot Sarus Crane is “big.”

The Elk In Sequim, WA

The Elk In Sequim, WA

 20150501_172833Living in Sequim, WA is a treat to say the least, my child dream to get to live here as I was born in Western Washington State.  So many memories as a little girl playing in the Olympic mountains, rivers, Sol Duc hot springs, Forks, and the ocean. The Pacific Northwest is my forever home,  I am grateful for every day. 

Last week my husband Scott and I celebrated my fifty-fifth birthday with a stay at home vacation (not many real vacations with a farm.)  Here is glimpse into my world, living in the Great Pacific Northwest, Washington State, Sequim, WA.  A wild group of elk, they are gigantic!  Thank you JESUS they never come down to our farm as they can destroy a garden, fence and farm very quickly.
