GOD Plants A Dream


God planted a dream in my mind in 2010 after surviving a semi truck accident I live each day in pain and I am physically disabled. I am not dead. I still have purpose and value in this great big world. Never give up. Select GOD Created A Miracle For Me.  

Present day my husband Scott and I are living this dream. Dreams do come true. We lived in our 5th wheel while we built the farm and our home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Washington.  I train the owner or caretaker worldwide how to train and care for the donkey using resistance free methods, endorphins and timing I call this the three second rule. Most importantly I teach my students how to have a plan and stay ON DONKEY TIME ®. Stop before the donkey stops. Learn how to be a fair leader with a plan and never drill or hurt the donkey.

Every day I look out our window into GOD’s world, GOD’s window of life. I am so grateful for this land that GOD brought to us and I jump for joy each and every day to share with you to never give up on a dream GOD plants. This is real it really happened and it can happen to you if you trust Jesus. I see mountains, donkeys, horses and more.   Dreams do come true but they take hard work and faith that GOD has a plan and his plan may or may not be fast. GOD knows what is best for his children as he created each one of us, he planted the dream in us, our choice is to have faith and step out or stay safe and never try. I choose to die with my boots on. How about you?

Apples and Pears


Dear Friends,

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.

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. 

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

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.

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.

Horses & Donkeys are not Cows!

Please read what happens to horses forced to created premarin for women going into menopause and yes I personally know a little about this. I was told when forced into instant menopause to take this drug at age thirty four.  I refused after reading what the mares were going through and the foals who went to auction and then meat buyers.  Select FACTS ON PREMARIN MARES AND FOALS Please get educated on this. Not to mention the fact premarin does not work as effective and safe as other synthetic estrogen products specifically targeting less breast cancer. Question everything your doctor asks you to do it’s your health, get informed.

Copied from the link above FACTS ON PREMARIN MARES AND FOALS not my data.

Horses are not cows!

Horses are by nature wanderers, and although it is also not right for the privately owned horse to be cooped up in a box stall day after day, this is a completely separate issue: These mares are actually tied up in front and strapped in behind. They absolutely cannot turn around or take more than two or three steps forward or backward.

As for feeding, the horses are more than adequately fed — most farms feed hay, grain and oats, which is in excess of what the sedentary mare requires. PMU detractors say that this is to keep them in profitable slaughter-weight for when they break down.

Guidelines state that horses should be offered water no less than twice per day (now amended, because of adverse publicity, to twice that). Still, although the urine volume is less, PMU farmers supposedly prefer to water as little as possible, thereby increasing the concentration of estrogen in the urine — which is what it’s all about (the farmers are under contract to Ayerst for a certain volume of urine per collection season. They are paid based on the concentration of estrogen in the urine shipped). Contracts vary with each farm, but generally, the gross revenue from pregnant mare urine ranges from around $2,000 to $2,500 per mare per year.

Farmers, the low-men on the economic totem-pole in this business, are paid up to $11.00 U.S. dollars per one gallon of PMU (about $0.00275 per gram of estrogen collected). 43 million U.S. dollars was generated off of urine sales in 2002.

A filly foal has a less than one in 10 chance of not going to slaughter, a colt foal, less than one in 50!

As far as the use of catheters are concerned, PMU supporters say that they are no more (and in fact our research shows they were never used industry wide, if used at all) — now “urine collection devices” (UCD’s) are used. The UCD’s are not very hygienic for the mares, since they allow the urine to soak the skin of the vulva, sometimes causing severe infections and painful lesions.

As for the actual living space they have, current PMU farm guidelines (strictly “voluntary” guidelines that have no consequences, and are not enforceable in any way) state that for horses weighing under 900 lbs. the width of the stalls should be no less than 3.5 feet in width; for horses over that weight, the width is increased to 5 feet.

This may well be large enough for the horses to lie down — but so is a coffin for a person. Would you like to sleep in one? While pro-PMU people, PMU farm vets included, say that it’s enough room to lie down and sleep, some have contradicted themselves in print by saying that “horses can sleep standing up anyway.”

Horses can lock their legs and doze, but they must lie down for their essential ‘deep sleep’ period (in the wild and in pasture, horses lie down approximately three hours for every twenty-four). As for exercise, the guidelines leave that up to the discretion of the farm manager or farm employees.

HorseAid has carefully reviewed the guidelines with leading animal husbandry veterinarians and found them insufficient to protect either the wellness of the mares or the thousands of foals they produce. Our latest investigations reveal that even these inadequate guidelines are not being followed.

Pro-PMU people say, “It’s 20 below zero out there in the winter, which is when the mares are confined. It’s more humane to keep them inside.” However, no indoor arenas or turn-out pens were observed in any of the farms we visited. There are an estimated 125 producing mares on each farm (averaged across all farms – 150, if you include reserves, “hires” and foaling/nursing mares), and to hire employees to hand-walk each one even once a day would not be cost-effective (and so, usually not done).

As a result, the already too-fat mares have problems with stocking up, soreness and hoof/wall separation. At almost EVERY farm we visited, there was some form of respiratory distress evident in the mares “on-line”.

In addition to the physical stresses, mentally — horses cannot be compared to other constantly penned, tethered livestock (such as dairy cattle).

Typical PMU producing farm “collection” area

Are the Foals Really Sent to Slaughter?
Some of the farms observed, do breed quality draft and Quarter horses (and obviously care about the welfare of the horses they breed), while others use combinations (Appaloosas, Belgians, “Generics”, Percherons, and Thoroughbreds) of both registered and unregistered horses purchased at local auction (the most common breed being the Quarter horse, which is coincidentally, the most desirable horse breed slaughtered for human consumption).

The offspring from the former are sometimes sold for show purposes and sometimes fillies are raised to go ‘on line’ as soon as they’re able to conceive (usually at the age of 20 – 24 months), but mostly they go to slaughter.

 

Please do not support this greed!

Donkeys have been a beast of burden for far too long. Forced to be dragged by A.T.V.’s in the USA for being stubborn and not moving their feet when scared of the human. Ears cut off for not doing what the owner says and yes much worse things I can’t type here.

Rocketmanage202024dec

Donkeys are considered to be worthless in most of the world and it is a horrific myth as donkeys can do everything the horse can do if of full age and tall enough. Donkey can live in domestication thirty to fifty years. Please care and share this blog post.

DONKEYS IN NEED, PLEASE RE-BLOG


Update all donkeys are safe. Thank you.

It has come to Turning Pointe Donkey Rescue’s attention that there are 18 donkeys in a kill pen in Texas that only have a few hours to be saved, or they will be going to slaughter. I’m not posting pictures as I know it can be disturbing to many. In a group effort, rescues, quarantine operators and transporters are trying to get these donkeys safe and vetted. They will be quarantined and rehomed locally in Texas. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to save their lives.

Please make donations via PayPal on our website Select TURNINGPOINT DONKEY RESCUE Time is of the essence.

The immediate need is $225 each to get them safe. Then less immediate but just as important funds for vetting, farrier, and feeding. Please join the team and donate if you can and/or at least share and ask friends and family to help. Thank you so much.

New Years Eve 2015 On The Donkey Whisperer Farm, Trumpeter Swans


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Hubby and I woke up to a cool brisk dry 29 degree’s on the farm this morning. Oh what a beautiful day it is as finally the rain has stopped and the sunshine is back in sunny Sequim, WA.  As we took our new puppy for a morning run GOD granted us with a real treat, we had a visit from the “Trumpeter Swans” flying over the farm they fly to the West in the morning and East at night no doubt to roost. Jesus Christ gave us this blessing just in time to capture the photos below. 

We are forever grateful to get to live here on our twenty acre farm and look forward to building our home. For now living in the 5th wheel is home sweet home. Many blessings come with the 5th wheel, tiny living, less housework. More time to play, still we look forward to the new year. Select Trumpeter Swans, Dungeness for more details.
