Happy New Year 2017! Ready To Train Your Donkey?


Happy New Year!

happy-new-year-2017-gif-images

I love the beginning of the new year as this is a time to reflect on our past dreams and goals. Thank GOD for all of our blessings. Plan for the new year projects and goals as some dreams were planned years ahead and now they are ready to be born. Living on a farm teaches life has seasons.

Spring, summer, fall and winter:

All of these seasons are very important for the farm crops to grow. Just like the farm has seasons so do people.wp-1458048428556.jpg

Time management is important as our world is spinning faster and faster each and every day.

The difference in completing goals and not is making a plan, asking experts for help. Education is a life long process, the mind needs to continue learning to stay strong. I enjoy teaching just as much as I enjoy learning.  No one can do everything without help, sometimes it is hard to ask for help. We all need one another to make the world a better place. I enjoy training the owner to train the donkey. Why? Donkeys are smart not stubborn. The donkey is always looking for a leader who is fair. Never for a bully or abuser.

We pray, wait and work hard for everything we do. Patience is very important while waiting depending on the issue and our personality this can be easy or difficult. This I know for sure. If I do not pray, prepare and plan nothing will change. I want to try to make a difference in this great big world.

Training Donkeys Takes Having A Plan:

Donkeys are smart not stubborn!

Donkeys look over a human in a matter of seconds and before you know it the donkey has trained the human to do exactly what the donkey wants.

Or  

The donkey will not engage at all!

riomelodyoboetubariding2016

The donkey places humans in one of three categories in a matter of seconds:

Treat dispenser

Fair leader

or

Abuser

Did I tell you Donkeys are Smart!

Did You Know Your Donkey Has A Personality?

The personality of your donkey can be the same as your personality or not. Makes no difference as training the donkey successfully depends on you the owner learning how to have a plan and control your emotions. Match the energy and personality that shows up on your farm. Never drill your donkey, stay ON DONKEY TIME kinda like beach time.

Kidney Failure In Cats


One of our two rescue kitties (black Purcilla) manx mix died two weeks ago of kidney failure she was only eight years old. We adopted two feral kitties from PAWS in 2008.

Our Anatolian puppy sat down next to her barked once to alert me something was wrong. She went into shock and then the vet had to put her to sleep. This all happened so fast. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla you had the best life we could give you.

This kitty could not go to the vet ever. She was a feral rescue and refused to be touched or held. 

Lessons learned from rescuing feral kitties?

  1. These cats will not adapt to humans in a way to enjoy being held and loved.
  2. They will show you they appreciate your home and love.
  3. Feral kitties will learn house rules and are smart.
  4. Not all feral kitties should live outside. Our kitties lived indoors 100% of the time and were happy.

Feral:

  • A feral cat is a cat who has either never had any contact with humans or her contact with humans has diminished over time. She is fearful of people and survives on her own outdoors. A feral cat is not likely to ever become a lap cat or enjoy living indoors.
  • Kittens born to feral cats can be socialized at an early age and adopted into homes. Maybe!

Select Cat Kidney Failure

Rest in Peace Sweet Purcilla! Purcilla died three weeks ago it has taken me this long to talk about it on my blog. She was a feral rescue meaning she never really liked people. She loved us we know for sure, she loved our dogs too. Our kitties were indoor only kitties.

Select Foods We Should Never Feed Our Cat no ham products either.

Select Stray or Feral Cats

Here is her sister Jasmine. She is doing good but misses her sister. She sleeps with our dogs. Did you know cats can have different dads?

I have learned cats act like donkeys. Cat’s are stoic just like the donkey and will not show sickness or pain until it is too late. Purcilla was playing the night before with her toys. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla.

Check Your Donkey, Horse or Mule For Shivering


TIS THE SEASON!

Rocket Man blanket nov 28, 2014 age 20

Please watch your donkey for signs of hypothermia! By origin donkeys are desert animals and yes, they have adapted to many climates out of survival, but when temperatures get below 20 degrees, they may suffer.

Watch for shaking, tucking of the tail, standing off alone and a decrease in activity, appetite and drinking. Should you see any of these signs immediately blanket your donkey, get him/her into a warm shelter and call your veterinarian. Hypothermia can lead to colic and even death.

boyusdec2014

Please check the blanket every day for sores etc., remove when the weather is back to raining and or the donkey is not needing stall rest per your vet. No blanket is 100% waterproof. We need to change them out and use common sense. If you have shelter, slow feeder with hay and warm water and your donkey is not shaking their fur works just fine and drys perfectly. Senior equines, donkeys with sickness can and do need our help while living in domestication. As always discuss this with your vet before the freezing wind and snow comes. Additionally remember trainig your donkey to wear a blanket should be done before the cold comes. 

Need help training your donkey check out our Donkey 101 Series – Video On Demand. Select Donkey Training 101.

Please check your equine for shaking as this is a warning sign that your equine is in distress even with shelter.

Audio Bible Is A Gift From God


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

After surviving a life threatening motor vehicle accident I was stuck in bed and a chair for most of three years. I attended physical therapy for three years, two and three times a week. I wore my horse riding gloves to the gym when I lifted weights so I could see myself riding again. People are visual learners too! Select GOD Created A Miracle For Me to read about my journey.

Mind Over Pain And Sorrow:

  1. I had a choice to give up or trust GOD! 
  2. My husband of twenty-four years made the choice to keep our little farm and not give up. He is an amazing man. 
  3. My husband gave me audio of the bible to listen to when I was not strong enough to lift the bible and read it. Select Audio bible.
  4. Our marriage grew stronger not weaker during this time of pain and suffering. 
  5. I learned to not worry about the little things. Pay attention to the good things in life. The news, social media is geared to negative attention. I refused to put any negative information in my head. The pain was constant and this in itself was enough negative energy.
  6. Love Life. Share love, I learned to Blog and I gave free donkey training lessons to people who owned donkeys all over the world. I wanted to continue to use my brain and help others. This is something the bible teaches us. Stop thinking about ourselves and help others. Not easy to do in the beginning but the more you do it the better you feel.
  7. Stop feeling bad about everything I failed at. Let it go! Look forward as GOD gave us eyes in the front of our head for a reason. Learn from our past mistakes but move on!
  8. Meet people, rejoice, laugh, smile and understand that I am lucky. Many people had it much harder than me.
  9. Live my life with a grateful attitude. Surround myself with positive people and energy. 
  10. Dream! Never stop dreaming it is never to late to live your life with passion.
