TWO IS THE MAGIC NUMBER!
All equines are herd animals, but donkeys are especially bound by strong herd instincts. Donkey’s are considered “Species-Specific” which means they prefer to be with their own kind.
This is why two is a magic number. Two donkeys mean health, happiness and longevity. It has been shown that a single donkey, living alone, is more likely to suffer from psychological and physical health problems than two donkeys living together.
So, if you want a less vet bills, less worry, a happy donkey and a healthy donkey, well, two is the magic number!

Congratulations you have prepared your farm for equine!
Now the real work begins. You are the owner of this beautiful equine a donkey, horse or mule. You the owner have responsibilities that must be maintained for the life span of your equine. Here are few issues to consider.
Have I Done My Homework?
The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® trains the owner to train the donkey. This is 100% successful in keeping the donkey(s) on your farm. When the owner is trained to be a fair leader and have a routine the donkey will stay with the owner and not be re-sold. Trauma can change this for the owner due to health and life issues. But in most cases even trauma victims want to keep their trained donkeys.
Do I Have Time To Train My Donkey?
Donkeys are smart not stubborn. Donkeys require humans to learn behavioral issues, signs of stress, fear and relaxation and have a plan each time we step into their world. Without a skill set the donkey will train the owner. Next the owner is frustrated and gives up. The donkey is sold and may or may not survive. A donkey who cannot have their hooves trimmed, a vet call etc., has a grim life.
Do You Want The responsibility?
Forget about the financial obligations, vet calls, hoof care, dental work, hay, fences, shelters. You can’t leave town! You cant leave your donkey alone without someone to feed and care for your donkeys. It is imperative you create a relationship built on a fair leadership program. All relationships take time and experiences. If we just throw the hay over the fence and provide the basic necessities in life for our donkey we will never become the fair leader our donkey desires. Safety is number one for both you and your donkey.
Training You The Owner To Train The Donkey
When you take the time to follow Donkey 101 and Donkey 102 your farm life will be easy. Your donkeys will follow you as a leader.

Once you the owner teach your donkey to trust you first. Teaching becomes fun and easy. Your donkey will never forget what you teach so be sure you are teaching your donkey correctly. We teach you how to teach words to your donkey not clicker training. Donkeys are visual learners and they have a photographic memory.

Why Waiting On God Is Important
There is actually something happening while we see nothing change. God uses waiting to grow his children as faith is something we can not see or touch. Faith requires trust in GOD to make the right circumstances line up with one another at the exact right time.
Waiting is not comfortable
Thinking back to moving to our forever farm and one day home. We waited, waited and waited as our home of twelve years took one and half years to sell, in 2014 the economy was poor for the housing market. One day the waiting was over and we were able to start working with the builder to build our home. This specific waiting period was most difficult as we were living in our 5th wheel, recreational vehicle. This was not comfortable. Tiny living is not easy ever. Still we waited and leaned harder on God and one another. Our marriage is stronger and we live in our forever home now. Most important step while waiting is to be kind to people. Do not be bitter. Wait with confidence that all will be wonderful in the end.

What if we gave up and pushed ahead?
We would have never experienced the life God had planned for us. We would have most likely made poor choices that could have altered our life forever. Never give up. Trust God in Jesus Christ name. God is always on time. This time is Gods time, God is working in the background to take care of our life.
Living In Our Forever Home
Is wonderful. Everything is exactly as we need it to be. We designed our home and we built our home, while living in a 5th wheel on a hay-field.
God Bless You And Your Family Two and Four-Legged!
