Jan 5th 2018 – Feels Nice To Be In The 40’s

Life on the farm has slowed down a little. Soon it will be hay season again but not quite yet. The farm has four seasons. Each season reminds us of how important it is to re-charge.

The farm is a bit wet and muddy at the moment. The robins have returned to the farm this is a good sign as perhaps spring will come early.  The trumpeter swans fly over our farm morning and night what a glorious place to get to live.

The farm is full of Sequim mud at the moment. Wow this mud sticks to everything and it makes a bit of a mess. All the donkeys and horses got out today and enjoyed the sunshine, a run and a roll. I worked hard to make sure each bucket was washed clean and all the stalls were tidy. One of the most important parts of owning equine (donkeys, horses and mules) is keeping the farm clean. All living creatures need clean water.

Living on the farm gives us a great purpose. No time be lazy ever. No matter if we are sick with a cold or worse we must take care of the farm and all the animals living on the farm.

Hubby and I are aging this is all part of life. Living with a physical disability takes a certain mind-set to never give up. Most importantly I pray every day to keep walking and moving. God in Jesus Christ name has provided us with this farm and the miracle of my life. In 2010 I survived an almost fatal car accident while riding as a passenger, I did nothing to deserve this disability and pain. My life has never been the same. I live each day with gratitude and peace. I am working really hard to build our little business the “Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC”. God has a plan for all of us. We are blessed every day to get to live on our farm in Sequim, WA.

Each time I feel the need to wonder why? I think why not me? Lots of people have worse things happen to them then what happened to me. God takes bad and makes good. God loves his children, our world, our universe and all the people and animals living on it. We must remember to pay it forward each day and never take anything for granted. Each moment is a gift. The car accident only took a few seconds. Seconds in time that I will never understand why? Yet here I am writing to you when I should be dead. Faith is something we cannot see yet. Never give up and trust GOD, pray and stay the course, run your race. Each person has a reason to be here at this exact moment in time.

As I am aging with this physical disability I work hard to keep moving. The body was built to stay in motion, it hurts to walk and move in the cold so I layer and wear lots of extra warm clothing. In extreme cold I must limit the time outside as my body has gigantic screws in the pelvis. If the screws get cold I am in extreme pain. So the key is not to get too cold.


What Is The Story Behind Your Blog?

Everyone has a story!

What’s your story?

Why did you create a blog?

My webmaster created a blank blog for me in 2010 after I started a web page to help people learn about the most humble animal of all the donkey.

What does your blog mean to you?

Personal, deep, God, Educational, Networking, Sharing the ups and down of our life.

What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?

Sharing GOD in Jesus Christ name as I became a christian in 2004. God in Jesus Christ name is real and without GOD I would not be writing to you here today. Education to help stop the abuse of humans and animals. Donkeys need a voice and God chose me to become the donkeys voice in this great big world at this exact moment in time.

Why do I Blog? 

I enjoy sharing. I enjoy reading blogs. I enjoy making a lifelong record of all of the wonderful and painful things this great big world has touched in our life. Scars, warrior wounds, emotional, family, my life. My husband is not a blogger. We have been together twenty-five years. He is my very best friend and my husband. GOD knows what he is doing.

Please talk to me, please leave a comment and share why you blog?

Enjoy your life as each day is fragile and precious.

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





Select Sign the petition to move Anne to a retreat for elephants in France

Transfer lonely Anne from Longleat to Elephant Haven, to be with companions.


140,000 GOAL
Anne the elephant was rescued to Longleat for rehabilitation on 3rd April 2011 from a life of suffering at Bobby Roberts circus. This was meant to be a temporary respite for Anne to gain physical health to enable her to be transferred to another location where she could be with other elephants.
Elephants are complex social animals and in the wild spend most of their day interacting in social activities. But Anne is alone, and has been since her last friends, Beverly and Janie, died at the circus in the Winter of 2001. She has spent 16 years now in total isolation from her own kind. This will affect her mental well being. Longleat has cared well for Anne but now she needs to be with other elephants.
Elephant Haven in France has agreed to accept Anne if she is to be released from Longleat, into their new elephant Haven, alongside two other elephants. She could be safely introduced to new elephant friends there.
Please sign now to demand Longleat transfer Anne to Elephant Haven in France to be with companions.

The Mess You’ll Leave Behind

Heroin. Stop the Silence. Speak the Truth.


Dear active drug user,

I know you believe it’s your life and you’re only hurting yourself. You’re wrong. I know you believe you’re indestructible, that what you’ve witnessed happen to so many of your friends won’t happen to you. You’re wrong again. Sooner or later it will.

Here’s what will happen after you die.

First, someone will find your body. Maybe you’ll die at home and your Mom will find you and start screaming. Maybe you’ll die in your bedroom; maybe in the basement that your Dad rebuilt so you and your friends would have a place to chill. 911 will be called and first responders will come. Paramedics will cut off your shirt, put the paddles on your chest and try to shock your ass back to life, but it won’t work and one of them will turn to your Mom or Dad and say, “I’m sorry, he’s gone.”
