Select Big Lick Petition to stop this abuse of horse training. I train you to train in the comfort of your own home world-wide. No abuse ever….


Select Donkey Whisperer Farm I do not train for these events. I train for your horse, donkey or mule to come a running to you each and every time you call them like a dog. I train for you to stay in the leadership role with no abuse. I train for the health and well-being of the equine so they can live their life with you. When equine get pain they get angry and dangerous. Please never authorize

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

Yellow is the new black: Orioles

Yellow is the new black: Orioles

Originally posted on verseherder:

An oriole
empties her skirt
pockets, and weeps,
she fears that
we may paint her
fully yellow once
she falls asleep.

Seeing Orioles in the wild makes my insides flutter. It isn’t that they are merely gorgeous. Orioles look like they are on a mission from another planet. Perhaps to tell our world that there is such a thing as too much yellow. And to gently suggest that the shadows may return but so will the sun.

Life hits hard.

Originally posted on Guard Dog Blog:

I don’t think this has ever been as clear to me as it has been over the last two weeks.   Having lost all manner of animals on the farm over the past 5 years (despite best efforts and education), I thought I was fairly innoculated to whatever could possibly happen when I finally became a dog breeder.  I was SO wrong.

I can’t remember exactly when I decided on my breeding philosophy, nor can I remember exactly the moment I decided that Ivy, my main LGD, needed to pass on her genetics, but suffice it to say that this litter was in the works for quite a while – years.  I worked my way past the “only registered dogs deserve to be bred” poppycock (yes, I believed that too, once upon a time), tested Ivy in all kinds of ways both medical and behavioral, measured her worth to…

Apples and Pears Are Ripe In Sequim, WA

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

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.

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.boysballoons2015

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 throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, 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.


Over feeding of sugar for the desert equine the donkey is a NO, NO. These donkeys are on strict diets or they should be in domestication as they evolved from the desert. Meaning they can’t eat tons of sugar products. They really need a diet of low sugar/protein hay, clean water, a buddy, no sugar vitamin and toys. Our hay is tested to come in at 7% sugar.

Our equine (donkeys and horses) have their teeth done, vet care, hoof care and eat a strict diet. In fact we cut their pasture down low so they really don’t get any nutrition out of our farm land.

Why? Our farm is not planted with the right hay for the easy keeper the donkey yet. One day we will plant and use our irrigation, not today.


 Please never stop and feed any equine 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. Equine can die from colic!!!!!

If your equine live near any fruit tree keep them away from the tree. If your equine live near a road of city folks place signs, PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE Donkeys, Horses and video cameras. This will help.


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!
Rio Johnson the Mammoth donkey, our three mini donkeys and two rescue standard donkeys, two horses.
