Playing Tourist, “Hurricane Ridge and Port Angeles, WA”


Scott (hubby) and I went to Hurricane Ridge for the day last weekend, after to Port Angeles to see the Oil Tanker coming into Seattle for Repair. We got an even bigger surprise a yacht was parked in the Port Angeles, docking station with a helicopter on the back. Must be nice to live like this. Never been on a yacht, it’s on my bucket list. I have been in a helicopter but it was to airlift me to Harborview after the semi-truck accident in 2010. Perhaps one day I can go for a helicopter ride around Hawaii or something fun.

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

***************************************************************************************************************************

Need help training, caring (setting up your farm) for a happy healthy donkey?

I am a worldwide virtual coach, consultant and trainer of you the owner to learn how to teach your donkey to be a social good citizen on your farm. Picking up the foot, taking a walk, coming to you when called, loading in the trailer and backing out. I create a custom coaching plan based on your experience and goals for your donkey. I look forward to meeting you!

Ask me how virtual coaching works worldwide from my computer to your computer? Send me an e-mail Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com

How Does Virtual Coaching Work?

We Skype at least once a week for one hour as I am training you to train your horse, donkey or mule. I am training you how to be a leader and stay safe and never get hurt. I train you to read the body language of your equine and understand the personality, introvert or extrovert of your equine and yourself and match the energy, never hold a grudge. I give you creative ways to fix the dance you are stuck in with your equine.  I am training you how to think like the equine, and be a fair leader without abuse, as equine are black and white in all things they do, no gray areas, one look from my lead mare and all other equine run out of the barn. Just a look. Donkeys, Horses and Mules always learn best from the person they trust, respect and feel safe with, this is you!

Do I go to the barn with you to train, coach and consult you? No

Are you ready to learn how to lead/train your donkey, horse or mule?  

I look forward to coaching you to become the leader your donkey, horse or mule is dreaming of and making your dreams come true. I study human personalities, equine personalities and behavior modification. I understand fear, disabilities and how easy it is to give up. Never give up is my motto, trust GOD in Jesus Christ name for all things. I teach you how to read your equine and help them learn to do the things you are dreaming of. This is my passion keeping equine in their homes and making your dreams come true. We all have dreams and goals, even I hired a personal coach after the semi-truck accident. I have been a virtual student too.

Homework

I give you detailed homework based on your goals, no more than fifteen minutes of training time for your equine two or three times a week.  Quality time is better than drilling, never drill any horse, mule or donkey. You do the home work, ask a family member or friend to video tape you, send me the video to review. Smart phones are easy to send short videos.

4. I teach you how to use your voice, timing, energy and more to train your equine.

How Do I Manage Your Lessons?

I bank your lessons meaning I send you a receipt after each one hour training class via skype. Skype is free to download on your computer and is a wonderful way to learn as I can see you and you can see me anywhere in the world. You can ask me any questions and I will answer, if I do not know the answer I will find the expert in the area of your need. Skype lets me type to you and you can type to me and we each can send videos. You can purchase one lesson at a time, five or the best deal ten lessons.  I offer free video review (no charge) and I will not charge you to call me or text me with short questions. Your donkey, mule or horses welfare and meeting your goals along with keeping you both safe is my number one concern. All relationships take time, having a plan will increase the time of meeting your goals 100%. All equine are looking for a leader who will help them find safety, I teach you how to provide this need to your donkey, horse or mule.

Having a personal coach, trainer and consultant is a wonderful way to learn as each problem you need resolved is instantly removed, leaving you with no worries and more time to enjoy your donkey, horse or mule.

How long is homework?
No more than fifteen to twenty minutes of training (home work) in most cases. Less is more, quality training, never drilling.

Is my credit card safe to give over the internet?
Yes, I pay KeyBank Virtual Merchant a fee every month and every customer for them to manage your credit cards.  I keep no credit cards on site ever.

Help For A Friend In Need – Please Wear Your Helmet


IMG_2927

Select GOFUNDME Melisa’s Helmet Crusade.

One minute you are riding and the next minute you are on the ground. I have been bucked off way too many times in my life, I have seen people bucked off from horses who are bomb proof. Yeh right! All horses under fear can go into self-preservation and buck, rear or turn on a time and guess what we riders even the best riders can hit the ground. Our brain is the most important organ we have, thus why I wear my helmet. Next time I ride I am wearing a rib protector too as my ribs have been broken by the semi-truck and are way to weak to withstand any kind of fall again.

Will I stop riding as an accident can occur?

Never, I love riding but I am aware any form of riding or working with horses, donkeys and mules is dangerous and I must be careful at all times. Yes, I am an instructor worldwide and still I will wear my helmet every time I ride.

Do you wear a helmet?

Would love to hear the reason why you do or don’t. I do not judge anyone, it’s your body, your life.  I never wore a helmet as a kid, but we did not use seat belts back in the 70’s either. Much has changed and my health is very important to me. I pray this brave story helps save another person from death or permanent brain injury.

Did You Know Animals Have Personalities Introverted and Exroverted?


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

farm2014dec

I am now accepting students on your farm in the Sequim area as our farm is not completed yet, a work in progress. After we build our last home I will have classes here in Sequim, WA and virtual coaching will no longer be part of my business. I am working on an educational book and saving money to create an education DVD for sale in the future. 

Select OUR STORE to sign up for one lesson, five or ten. I pay Key Bank to manage all credit cards I never keep any credit cards on  hand ever. All lessons are banked and you can use whenever you have time. Most students meet with me once a week and spend fifteen minutes a day at least 3 times a week doing my homework. I train the owner of equine to train the equine via Skype, your videos and some of mine anywhere in the world. I do not train your equine I train you to train after I create a plan based on your needs and concerns and both of your personalities. My written homework brings instant results.

If you have been following my blog you know I am an extrovert (I can go introverted for short periods of time) I am married to my best friend Scott of twenty-two years, my beloved husband and guess what he is an introvert. This is actually proven to be normal for humans to choose the opposite personality of what they are as we crave what the other partner has, the opposite of what we do not have. I am by all means an optimist, creative and an innovator, I am most excited when I am working on a new project. I dream big and I love to share with others how to set goals and make their dreams come true. For me to be able to think, plan and become creative I crave quite. I need time to pray, and think with no distractions. Like some people I can’t create anything with too many distractions i.e., the television, I crave total quiet. After I have finished what is in my head the creativity and dreams, gifts GOD In Jesus Christ name has given me I crave human interaction too. I enjoy meeting new people who are like-minded, positive and have goals in their lives, as we will never be in this exact moment again. Every day we grow a day older at fifty-five I know I am half way done with my course in life.

Select Introverts and Extroverted Humans

MELODYRIORIDING2014SEQUIMAGE8melodylilygreatshotlabordayweekend2014

I am passionate about helping owners of donkeys, horses and mules train their own equine and never send off to a trainer, after all you will be the person feeding, doing the hooves.  If an abscess forms in the hoof you will be creating your own hoof poultice and iodine wrap, caring for the equine not the trainer. I teach you the owner how to have a plan to stay safe and be a leader 100% of the time. 

The Donkey, Horse and Mule did not choose you to come to your farm in most cases not all cases.

If you have the sixth sense like the equine have naturally and you understand animals your plan is to let the equine choose you! Sadly most people want what they want and do not care if the equine likes them or not. This causes big problems down the road as the equine has emotions, too.

MelodyLilybestshotlabordayweekendafteraride20114

Why Does The Personality between you and your new horse, donkey or mule matter?

Depending on the goals you are setting for your donkey horse or mule you need to understand that an extroverted donkey, horse or mule is going to excel at leadership, learning new things and leading this includes you if you are an introvert. You can learn to lead as an introvert but it will take some work. An extrovert will love leading on the trail rides, going to shows in most cases if not abused and burned out to show off. The introvert will not want change and will go for a trail ride as long as they can follow the extrovert equine down the trail and forget about asking the introvert to jump and do agility work with the mini and standard size donkey and ponies. Do you see why it is smart to learn all the facts before opening your wallet to purchase any equine?

Next we must think about what are the goals for our new horse, donkey or mule?

OBOLILY2014SEQUIM

Have a plan before purchasing your new donkey, horse or mule

it is imperative you not only let the equine choose you and trust you but also know the personality and spirit level and make sure your new equine is 100% sound (vet check for health and conformation) to ensure your new equine can physically do the work you require them to do and is of the age, physically, mentally ready.

Example if you find the perfect horse, pony, mini donkey, standard donkey or Mammoth donkey to ride as your jumping equine and show equine it is imperative you select an a strong athlete who is healthy and an extrovert.  No more than 20% of the weight of the donkey for riding including the saddle.

LILYRIOJUMPINGLILY2012_edited-1IMG_2927Trophycalenaredershotage62014farlloboesears2014calanedarLilyrunning10acresage92014_edited-1Rocketman2014junesequimage20

Introverts do not enjoy jumping, large crowds or anything new just like introverted humans prefer to stay home and read a book or watch a computer.  

“When I selected my horses and donkeys I can honestly tell you out of the eight we own, one did not choose me and after nine months he still has not. He trusts my husband but not me. His name is Maximus and I am giving him the time it takes to trust me as his previous trainer was a woman and sometimes donkeys, horses and mules.”
