GOD Must Have Needed One More Donkey In Heaven – Goodbye Sweet Galopin


The Virtual Donkey Whisperer Farm website and blog was launched in January of 2010 a dream GOD had placed on my heart to share free information to  help our worlds most precious and fragile equine the donkeys, mules and horses but most importantly our relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  I can do nothing without GOD in Jesus Christ precious name, nothing.

I share stories of life on the Donkey Whisperer Farm with you the reader for free.  I provide free help for the equine as my health permits and I share professional trainers sites, health, emotional and mental information for you the owner to be the best you can be for your equine.  If you have been following my blog you understand how important it is to me to share information for free to help people make the best informative decision to keep their beloved equine in optimum health.  I believe each of us humans can be a human angel to make our world a better place but first we must step out of our safe little shell and trust GOD for all things.

Sharing free information on the Donkey Whisperer Farm website, twitter, youtube and this blog has been a good thing as it keeps me connected to our most precious world, I have been able to travel to France, Australia, Africa and all over the world without leaving my living room.    I continue to pray the information I have provided has helped a few owners provide a great life for their equine and the lucky human who wants to be part of the equines life.

Galopin a standard Jack (stallion) from France (photo above) touched my heart deeply I am very sad to report he died during the gelding process a few weeks ago.  I have not been able to write about this as well my emotions were bouncing all over the place.  I have spent many hours in prayer for the owners of Galopin as they loved him so very much, they did everything they could do to give this beautiful young donkey a great life.  Death comes to all of us and only GOD knows the date and time.  GOD must have decided he needed one more standard donkey in heaven as Galopin died from the gelding process.  Please pray for Galopins human family, pray for peace and joy to come back into their home.

Warning for gelding donkeys:

Donkeys can have reactions to medications, donkeys can bleed to death after being gelded and well Donkeys are not horses, Donkeys are donkeys. Donkeys can have heart problems, liver problems on-and-on you get the picture and well we can not know when it is the last day to be with our human loved one or our four-legged animal. The bible says the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, each day is indeed fragile and precious in the navigation of this thing called life.  Please remember I am not a vet nor am I am vet assistant I have never ever had to geld a donkey our donkeys came gelded when we purchased them I share free information to help you the owner make the best decision for your donkey or mule.

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. 2 CORINTHIANS 4:8 (TLB)

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

    1. I am not a vet or a vet assistant just sharing what I have learned and helping people make informative decisions in the health and care of the donkey and or mule. Donkeys and mules need to be tied off when gelding or they can bleed to death. Sedation with donkeys and mules is tricky, sweating, sneezing etc., and just not the same amount of health information is available as the horse has. We must remember the horse brings in money in horse racing, cutting, etc., not alot of money in donkeys. Thus sharing information will help a donkey or mule down the road. Just like people can die during an operation so can animals.


  1. I am so sorry to hear this but was thrilled when you spoke so openly of our Lord. I once lost a pet and was deeply upset over it. A great prayer warrior woman I had known for years called and said she was led to call as the Lord told her I need comforting over something. I had not told anyone of my pets passing away. When I told her, she said, “Don’t be sad, you know that animals go to heaven don’t you?”
    Well I admit I’ve heard folks say that but was always assuming it was similar to the phrase, “I’ll pray for you.” Nice words but soon forgotten.
    But she wouldn’t let it go. She went through verse after verse regarding this. She was fluent in Hebrew and went back to the original language to give a clearer meaning to phrases regarding the soul, spirit, Breath of life etc. When she had finished, I then had to admit, just like Billy Graham, St. Frances, Calvin, Edwards, Luther and many Popes, that yes, animals do go to heaven. Some years later my mom, a true believer, was on her death bed when suddenly she began describing the unusual and beautiful trees she was seeing, the people all dressed in white smiling at her and suddenly she lit up and shouted, “Boo Kitty! What are you doing here?” She then began petting her invisible kitty that died years earlier. She passed away holding her Kitty against her chest.


    1. Thank you – Galopin was not our donkey but a donkey living in France a donkey I had coached the owner to study Parelli. The donkey was very special and beautiful.
