“Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained” Melody Johnson, Trainer


Melody Johnson is a worldwide trainer, she teaches the owner how to train, care and keep the horse, donkey and mule living in balance with the owner. “Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained” This prevents equine from being sold to another home, auction or worse slaughter. Leadership with no abuse is what she teaches the owner. Keeping equine healthy in domestication takes having a plan and hard work. Timing, training tools, matching the energy, behavioral modification for both the owner and the equine are just a few of her resources. Melody enjoys sharing her passion of living on the farm with donkeys, horses and yes she loves mules too. Need help check out her on-line virtual student training testimonials.

My little flower garden, baby birds along with Hay

Hello sweet friends,

Perhaps you are just reading my blog for the first time?

If yes, I pray you will return when you need to smile and find some inspiration. Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today, the reason my blog will bring you peace, and strength to never give up. I am a walking talking miracle, I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident while riding as a passenger, life is never ever fair. This motor vehicle accident has left me forever permanently physically disabled, something I would never ever wish on anyone, disability is invisible in many cases to others, sadly it is very real to the person suffering with a disability. I am no longer able to stand for long periods of time without rib, back and hip pain. I can never go for a hike again or walk on a beach, go dancing, ride my equine on trail rides or even ride for long amount of time due to hip, rip and back pain along with my feet going numb. Sitting too long is difficult too as my pelvis wants to be elevated. My ribs will spasm from over working my body in any way and even from laughing while sitting down. Still, I live my life grateful and full of hope and joy, living each day as it is my last. Why? I am a miracle, I am a survivor and I choose to live my life not as a victim but as a victor.

In 2014 I started the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business with my husband of twenty-three years. I work very hard to stay productive as I teach worldwide from my computer to my students computer “how to train a donkey, mule or horse.” Animals are GOD’s angels, healers sent to help us humans live our life with purpose and peace, I have loved animals since I was a child. Animals live in the moment if we humans could only learn to let go of anger, hate and grudges. Wow, what our world could be?

After the car accident my husband and I were forced to change our life 100%. We needed to move into land that would help me walk, no more hills, less rain as my arthritis is so bad. Looking ahead six years from the date of the car accident we have had an amazing journey. One of tears, pain, suffering, laughter and a grateful attitude. Before the motor vehicle accident I was a master gardener of flowers. I so loved to work in my garden, after the accident I could no longer bend and care for my flowers. We moved to our farm in Sequim, WA in 2014. God once again started whispering to me, and another beautiful creation in Jesus Christ name has been created, the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC, Sequim, WA surrounded by the beauty of the olympic mountains, we literally live in the middle of our hay-field. Wild life are entirely different in this blue hole called Sequim, WA.

Before we sold our home of fourteen years I carefully planned to take a few of my most favorite plants. This was not an easy decision as each plant was important to me when I designed and loved on my flower gardens in our former home. Here is a sneak preview of the miracle of life GOD in Jesus Christ name has placed into my heart, soul and mind. I so enjoy the garden, flowers are an important part of my life and now I am working on growing low sugar hay, and food for us. We planted a little fruit orchard last winter and I am grateful to share we have one peach and several apples. God just gave me another surprise a box full of baby birds. Nothing gives us a feeling of hope like a baby in human or animal form. Babies are like spring a new beginning, thus my first photo my little bird I am welcoming into this great big world with fresh water and bird food when he/she is ready.

Please no matter what you are facing in life never give up! God in Jesus Christ name is amazing. God will plant a dream and time can be years before the dream unfolds, this I know GOD will always take care of his children. We must trust, have faith and stay positive. This is never easy. Thus why I share my life with you.

quit never

Ever Wonder Why Donkeys Dig?


IMG_7108

For those of us who own domesticated donkeys we understand some donkeys are diggers and some are not. Our big boy “Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson is a digger.” He started digging at the age of one when we lived on a smaller five acre farm. I study the behavior of donkeys, horses and mules extensively it is really one of my obsessive compulsive passions. We have video surveillance on our farm. I am always in the student mode when working, cleaning stalls and teaching.  Thank you Jesus for giving me this passion and purpose in life.

Select OUR STORE for consulting, coaching or training classes.  We sell quality and a perfect fit Donkey halter  with matching lead line. Our halter will fit your donkey not a horses head. A perfect fitting halter is imperative to you having success training your donkey. 

How do you order a donkey halter?

Select OUR STORE, select size, mini, standard or mammoth and the color you want. We offer ten colors, our donkey halters fit a donkey not a horse. Our halter is handmade in the USA (contractor) using only the best Yacht rope to never mold, brass screw on snap is used in training and a leather end for training. Remember donkeys are not horses with long ears. You must have a plan when training a donkey. Donkeys never forget a thing they learn. Donkeys will pretend they know nothing with a new owner. Donkeys are smart not stubborn, donkeys are seriously into self-preservation. 

original1.mycolorsstoreoriginal1.minisropehalterropehaltersnapwp-1458048456338.jpgwp-1458048428556.jpg

Please never leave any halter on your horse, donkey or mule while not in 100% attendance to avoid death or self-mutilation.

Please never feed your donkey alfalfa, bread, grass clippings, watermelon, pears, peaches, apples. Donkeys have a serious diet of low sugar (below 10%) low protein hay. If you want to learn how to care for your donkey sign up for 1, 5 or 10 lessons with me. Select our store for lessons.

Why did Rio dig at the other farm so much?

My theory is he was bored, he did not have a large paradise paddock as he does today. On the former farm of five acres he lived on a dry paddock with my first young horse and Rocket Man our mini donkey. Rio would dig 3ft deep holes. This was a problem as when he dug he put dirt and rocks into his hooves. It was a difficult process to learn. Additionally the dirt Rio dug up was used  to make a soft bed, keep insects off the donkey. I had pin chips down for a soft bed for him. Did not matter, Rio wanted a dirt bed as he is a Mammoth donkey with a serious mind. Donkeys also dig to find roots, the paddock in the former farm had lots of trees we removed to make the paddock for the equine. Here on the Sequim, WA farm we have no tree roots. Rio is happier as he has a larger space to move. Donkeys enjoy walking and taking a bite here and there.

Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC in Sequim, WA we have a huge paradise paddock for him to go out in and walk back to get water, shelter etc.., He can graze some, let me explain. We brush hog the pastures in the spring, summer and fall as donkeys can’t eat tall grass, weeds, etc., without getting sick. Donkeys evolved in the desert their diet is extreme. No feeding grass clippings, bread, apples, pears, watermellon any of this stuff. Sure they like to eat it but the end result is pain and suffering. Donkeys hooves rot out when not fed correctly, they are in so much pain they cant walk. We owners will pay a  high cost for the vet to come, learn how to soak the hoof, create a hoof wrap and it is hard work for a good two weeks. Not to mention the physical, emotional and finacial cost to our family budget.
