We are all about donkeys, mules and horses!

Donkey Whisperer Farm is all about donkeys, mules and horses! We celebrate, educate and promote these magnificent and intelligent beings. We are dedicated to building public awareness about equine personality, behavior and are deeply invested in educating and empowering you with safe, holistic, resistance-free training methods that foster a strong bond between you and your equine.

The Farm

Nestled in the breathtaking Dungeness Valley on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is a magical place known as the “Donkey Whisperer Farm”. Twenty acres of sprawling pasture, Paradise Paddocks, and a state of the art barn is home to “Rio” a magnificent Ambassador for the American Mammoth Donkey, “Tuba” and “Oboe” two rescued Standard Donkeys and three adorable Miniature Donkeys, “Rocketman”, “Maximus” and “Roy”. Joining this menagerie of Longears are two gorgeous horses; “Miss Lily” a purebred Palomino Quarter Horse and “Miss Trophy” an elegant black American Saddlebred.

Donkey Whisperer Farm is also home to trainer and animal behaviorist Melody Johnson and her husband Scott. Here, Melody’s life long passion for equines drives her commitment to sharing and educating the public about donkey behavior and welfare and teaching owners and caretakers natural and progressive training methods for donkeys, mules and horses.

As Melody reflects, “In 2007, after purchasing an untrained twenty-month-old Quarter horse filly, a nine-month Mammoth Donkey gelding and a thirteen-year-old Miniature Donkey gelding, I began looking for a natural approach to training my diverse family of equines. I clearly needed training tools and instincts that crossed species lines without the use of resistance or punishment, but at the same time kept me and my equines safe.”

Nearly a decade later, the foundation of Melody’s Online Training Program is natural horsemanship, resistance-free techniques, balanced energy, leadership and great respect for all equine. She calls upon her spiritual intuition and gifts from Jesus Christ, which include her unique ability to bond with equines, empathetic nature and natural instincts.

Got Donkeys In Your Life?


Donkeys Can Be Slow To respond, Slow To Move Usually, Not Always. EXTROVERT VS INTROVERT “Donkeys need us humans to become a person with a plan, most importantly a human the donkey can respect and follow as a fair leader.  A leader who will never abuse the donkey ever.

Welcome Spring 2016, Donkey Whisperer Farm Our Hay Is Growing


Hello sweet friends,

All of the animals on the Donkey Whisperer Farm are happy! Spring is here, the birds are making nests, hay is growing. Donkeys are singing, (extroverts), our horses are starting to seriously play horse games and napping.  Note; only a safe equine will lay down and get some much-needed REM sleep. The warmth of the sun is vital to all of us. I am pleased to share I have started a small fruit orchard and a very small flower bed. Scott finally let me have a few flowers, yes I have a little lavender. We will be selling our first and only cutting of alfalfa, orchard mixture the end of June, first week of July 2016. We can not feed this hay to our donkeys. Alfalfa is too hot for donkeys. Donkeys evolved in the desert, requiring hay to be tested to come in below 10% sugar content.

Big news!

I now have my first apprentice working with me. My apprentice is helping me start our rescue mare (Saddlebred) as I am not physically able to get on and off, I have done all the ground work to give her the opportunity to learn, she is no longer afraid of her own shadow. I am physically legally disabled for the rest of my life, the car accident left me with serious pain, spasms, feet go numb and hip pain. NEVER GIVE UP! If you are suffering with chronic pain I am truly sorry.  Pain sucks…. Pain will destroy your life if you let it. I refuse to give up, GOD in Jesus Christ name gives me the strength to keep moving on. As I age no doubt my back pain will increase, my physical therapy is the farm now in lieu of the gym. Thank you Jesus. Remember a body in motion stays in motion.

This horse came to me seriously troubled, biting, urinating, striking, bug eyes, head high, tale high and could not think. She has lost a good inch off her back now as she is relaxed most of the time. I expect to have her in the saddle by mid summer or the end. I am a world-wide trainer of owners of donkeys, mules and horses. The most important lesson I teach is to wait another day when the equine is fearful or stressed. No one can learn when they are stressed. Make sure you are 100% a fair leader, always a leader with a plan. The soaking, relaxation is vital to the success of training your donkey, horse or mule.

I have moved Rio our Mammoth donkey into a combo snaffle and wow is he amazing. Why? I trained him to ride with just the rope halter, my voice, legs, wearing the bit is never about hurting the equine. Keep training lessons short. Never drill. Always end your training session with something the donkey, horse or mule knows how to do. I am working to prepare Rio to pull a cart. Our farm in Sequim, WA is touching three major highways, paved roads. I need to make sure I have 100% breaks in case of an emergency when cart pulling. Cart pulling is serious business you must have your equine trained in all areas of safety, walk-on, whoaa, etc., before pulling a cart as they can and do flip over.

Select Budweiser Horses Flips even the best trained equine can have an accident.

If you would like help training your donkey, horse or mule I am now accepting new students. I teach anywhere in the world from my computer to your computer. Select Donkey Whisperer Farm training Testimonials to see how virtual coaching works. I train you to train your equine, I teach you how to understand a naughty donkey, mule or horse or a fearful equine. Big difference along with the personality of your equine and your personality. We must match the energy with no abuse. Then we need to control our emotions and energy and remember this is no big deal. Equine are great teachers of life.

When we change everything changes, family, friends, job, and most importantly our relationship with our equine. Boundaries are vital to a healthy successful relationship of any kind. A great relationship takes time to build trust. If you remove trust from your horse, donkey or mule you will have a very difficult time being a leader. Equine are looking for a leader not an abuser. Never let anyone hurt your equine ever. No twitching or any other form of barbaric training is needed ever! 

Select Our Store to order coaching, training, consulting time with Melody Johnson, one-on-one. You can purchase gift certificates for artwork, training, Donkey Halter to fit a donkey’s head not a horse.
