"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!

melodyscottrubybeachmarch1st2015

Hubby and I have been working on our farm since August of 2013. Another year has quickly disappeared, so many great and sad things have come and gone. We are most grateful to GOD for keeping us healthy; emotionally, physically and mentally. We are fifty-five now and this is one of our final bucket list destinations. Living our life simpler with less stress. 2016 we will celebrate our twenty-third year as a couple. Wow!

Great things:

Arena completed.

Hay cut and donated to starving horses as we will grow low sugar/protein hay (sell).

Enjoyed the Olympic Mountains over and over again.

Fences completed, stained.

I created an amazing food garden out of hanging baskets. After the house is completed I will have raised beds.IMG_20150519_133142IMG_20150519_133656IMG_20150519_133744

Living in the 5th wheel has been a challenge in the winter seasons but extremely easy in the spring, summer and fall as we have full sun on our farm, Sequim, WA.

Less rain has helped my body, arthritis and pain will be with me the rest of my life from the Semi-truck accident. Screws in my pelvis cause severe pain and arthritis.

Jewel our twelve year old middle dog had a very dangerous tumor (cancer) on her hip and tummy. Surgery was successful and she is healing she is one strong dog. Thank you Jesus!

We have a new puppy!

I created my own hand-made Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC Rope Halter/matching lead line with a brass snap and leather end. Sales are outstanding!!!! Thank you for supporting my small business.

Painful things:

Our dog Sampson died right before Thanksgiving as he had cancer.

Naturally we did the best thing;

We had our vet send him to heaven no more pain, I cried for three weeks and still call the new puppy his name. I will always love you Sampson! Sampson was our rescue Great Pyrenees/Akita. We had no idea he was sick until one week before he let us know with extreme screaming pain.

I thought I had a publisher for my donkey educational book, turned out to be a scam. Still praying for a publisher.

My hubby Scott and I are grateful to GOD to give us this farm, let us own the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and keep our marriage strong in the middle of some serious test and trials. We are best friends. If you get the opportunity to marry, marry your best friend. Love and friendship must go hand-and-hand as marriage is hard work.

Living in a small space is not easy but it can be done. We are a testimonial to this. IMG_6423

    Your farm looks wonderful and I love your posts. All of the animals are a delight to see. Our adopted cat Sid sends them a sincere meow for the new year. Happy New Year to you and yours! I have reblogged this and another post on my WordPress site Animals Are Wonderful which at the present so to say is Sid’s site but in the New Year I will be doing more with it.
