Happy Fathers Day


Father’s day has always been a day of great pain for me as I lost my daddy when I was nine years old.  Growing up without my dad was very difficult; now I am a grown woman in my early fifties and guess what?  I miss my daddy, as he was the one human in this world who always adored me.

“If you have a father who has been a great dad never forget how lucky you are to get this blessing as so many of us never get this opportunity.”  GOD has blessed me with a wonderful husband and my best friend but no human can ever replace my daddy.  My daddy was so very special and for all the love he instilled inside of me I am forever grateful.

Thank GOD I have my father in heaven Jesus Christ to be my dad as without Jesus Christ I would be lost!  How do I know this? Most of my life I did not believe in GOD and then in a time of great trial I reached out to Jesus and he grabbed a hold of me to forever change my life.  GOD is amazing I call him father.


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

GOD Uses The Weakest To Help The Strongest Have Empathy


Seems the most difficult times in life are the most life altering as GOD uses

these moments

to carve away everything that is not real and destined for his purpose

 GOD uses the weakest of his people to help the strongest have a bit more empathy for others.  Perhaps GOD uses the weakest to prove to the world he is the great I AM.

 I wonder why GOD would choose me to write to you and share the gospel I am just a regular person like so many in our fallen world.

 I guess it is something he and he alone planed from the day I was conceived in the womb

like an artist paints the last stroke on the magnificent painting


GOD uses trauma to finish his human master piece

 Each of us has something wonderful to offer our most fragile world

each of us has unique gifts and talents

all given to us with one purpose created “Save Souls”

help people find Jesus Christ for this is really the most important of all


Our world spins so fast and we have to learn to make time for GOD

pray, mediate listen to scripture and read scripture

each and every day

as the battle is not ours to win

 GOD is in total control and when we stop fighting, pushing, crying, screaming, everything is exactly how it was planned no more and no less


I do not understand why children must get cancer, or die young?

Why anyone must suffer with cancer, chronic pain and suffering?

or the

most horrific of all the loss of a most beloved child

the most painful of all

things to lose is our beloved child


“Every Tear is placed in a bottle”

One day GOD will make things right and when GOD corrects the bad things happening to his children

the entire world will see it had to be GOD  

No man can do what GOD can do in Jesus Christ name


Prayers are taken from my favorite pocket purple book for help “The Secret Power Of Speaking GOD’S Wordby Joyce Meyer

 Prayer for courage

I am strong and of good courage, I do not fear nor am I afraid,

for the Lord my GOD, he is the one who goes with me.

He will not leave me nor forsake me Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV

Prayer for discouragement

I do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out

through fear).

Though my outer man is progressively decaying and wasting away

yet my inner man is progressively renewed day after day.

For my light, momentary affliction

(this slight distress of passing hour) is even more

and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for me 

everlasting weight of Glory (beyond all measure, excessively surpassing

all comparisons and all calculations, 

a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease) 2 Corinithians 4:16-17



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

Hoof Abscess


The Donkey Whisperer Farm is officially six years old in 2013time has literally flown by so much has changed and yet so much remains the same.  Rio is now a full-grown Mammoth donkey as he turns seven years old in 2013.  Rocket Man turns nineteen and my horse Lily is eight years young. Read my post Donkeys and hoof abscess for more information.  Select HOOF ABSCESS

The most frustrating and difficult issues I have had with our Mammoth donkey is hoof abscesses. It appears that Mammoth donkeys should live in the desert with no rain poor boy was born in Western Washington with too much rain.  Each of them get their feet picked out daily and their paddock has very little mud and yet the Mammoth donkey suffers from abscess, networking via the internet I have learned this is sadly the health issues associated with Mammoth donkeys.

I suggest laying pin chips down so they have a place to lay outside and it is soft and dry the only problem I have noted with pin chips is it needs to be replaced at least every other year or it will turn to mud.  


Hoof abscesses in donkeys are not the same as the horse.  Why? 

Donkeys hoof anatomy is of a donkey not a horse. Donkeys are strong and will not show any pain until it is a serious medical matter.  Here is another post I wrote explaining the emergency kit and the hoof abscess.  The horse would be limping much faster than the donkey or mule with an abscess thus the seriousness and need for a vet immediately. Please call the vet for draining a hoof abscess do not leave this to the farrier.

What can you do for your donkey, horse or mule suffering from a hoof abscess?

Soak morning and night for twenty minutes. Create a hoof boot and the abscess should pop. If it does not pop (you will know it popped when full weight is on the hoof) you must call the vet. After it has popped your donkey will be able to walk normal now is the critical time to keep creating the hoof boot and placing bedadine in the guaze pad to dry out the hoof for at least 6 days. Now you can take the hoof boot off and the donkey can go back to life. Diet is very important to prevent abscesses along with the correct trim. Research and learn about this.

Call the Vet hopefully you have a vet that has experience with donkeys.   Donkeys are not horses and thus their hooves do not behave the same as a horse.  Please only authorize your vet to find the abscess and drain it,never let the farrier do the vet’s job!  Your vet will cut out a very small hole for drainage releasing the pain and pressure almost instantly.  Never authorize the farrier to do this as this is a medical need not a farrier need.

Follow up maintenance is necessary the hole needs to be kept clean, pick the stuff out of feet every day, I suggest getting a spray bottle and using Beda dine solution with some water in a water bottle to spray the hole clean every day.  We use the solo spray bottle as it gets all the gunk out and keeps it clean, Soaking a cotton ball in beda dine solution and sticking it in the hole is necessary until the hole has grown out.   The hoof will not grow completely out for at least ten months to a year so keeping the hole clean from mud and gunk is a full-time job to say the least.

One of the best things we can do as an owner of donkeys, horses and mules is keep the hooves trimmed and make sure they are being trimmed correctly.  Select Pete Ramey to learn how to trim a donkey, trimming needs to be done at least every 6-7 weeks.  I highly recommend you the owner viewing this dvd and asking your farrier to review it.  Trimming equine is not a back yard hobby and it needs to be left to professionals in my opinion as incorrect trimming will cause abscesses and sand and grit to travel into the white line.  As the owner we must be picking the hoof out each and every day and making sure no thrush is growing in the hoof.  Diet of the equine is imperative to optimum health so test your hay, do not give grain and treats to the donkey just clean water and low sugar hay.  Orchard hay around the Pacific northwest is what we use and a slow feeder is also a good idea as long as it is covered to keep the rain out.

I am trying a new slow feeder out will follow-up with the results in my upcoming blogs.

Diet, exercise, professional trimmer of hooves every 6-7 weeks, clean out hooves each and every day, clean dry padock, morton loose salt, white salt block, clean water, low sugar hay and no grazing in green grass for the easy keeper. Donkeys are always easy keepers.🙂
