The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® trains the owner or caretaker how to train the donkey. All videos are sold with lifetime access and a booklet (pdf).

  1. Learn how to put the halter and lead line on with peace and harmony.  These exercises create trust and relaxation for both the donkey and the human.
  2.  Teach the donkey to stand for the farrier and pick up the feet with no kick or fight.
  3.  Say the word foot and the donkey picks up the foot.
  4.  Stop the donkey from biting, nipping and swinging the head into me.
  5.  Stop the donkey from dragging the human or bolting. 

Watch Our Free Video “Bringing The Donkey Home”

Take Melody Johnson to the farm via any smart device. Print out our book attached to each training video. Stay On Donkey Time ® as donkeys cannot be forced to do anything. We cannot bribe a donkey and we cannot punish a donkey to follow us. The donkey must form a relationship with the human and most of all the donkey must trust us at all times. Never abuse a donkey, never betray a donkey. Learn how to be a fair leader 100% of the time you are with your donkey. If you see another human hurting your donkey or animal stop it. If your donkey watches you do nothing over pain and abuse the donkey will deem you unworthy to be a leader. The leader steps in and stops pain. Pain is ineffective in training animals and humans. Pain teaches to never trust. We want trust 100% of the time we are with our donkey. Trust is earned.

“Horses dream of being trained the way a donkey demands to be trained” Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.

Donkey 102  video on demand trains the owner or caretaker how to problem solve and train the donkey.  Donkey 102 teaches you the owner or caretaker how to use the stick and string (fiberglass leather tip) to touch the donkey never hurt the donkey. A tap to keep on when walking, a wiggle to stop the bolt, desensitizing to prepare for the farrier and more. This stick is a must have for your shelter and farm. Seriously an extension of your arm. 🙂

 

ON DONKEY TIME ® is our business logo! Stay calm, have a plan and be a fair leader.  Never betray a donkey. Never drill a donkey. Do not bring a trainer into your farm or send your donkey to a trainer unless they have studied Donkey 101 & 102 and will never abuse or give pain to your donkey.

Donkeys follow the human they trust and respect. Trust is earned and proven. This is the person who lives on the farm, picks up poop, feeds and cares for the donkey(s). 

Sadly donkeys who have no social skills are at high risk for re-sale and meat buyers. Please take the time to learn how to train your donkey. Peace and harmony are guaranteed to come back to the farm. It’s all about the human. Preparation is the key to training a donkey. Donkeys learn at the release of pressure not from pain. The donkey has trained the human. Some donkeys are rescue donkeys meaning they have met the worst kind of human. Donkeys have photographic memories. Donkeys never forget good or bad. Fixing a donkeys that has been abused will take Donkey 101 and Donkey 102 and time. No donkey is a throw away donkey.

Stay ON DONKEY TIME ® never drill or stress your donkey out. Tomorrow will be a better day.

Training Donkeys, Mules and Horses To Ride In The Horse Trailer


Howdy,

Did you know donkeys prefer to ride loose in a horse trailer? Yes indeed donkeys prefer to ride loose in a horse trailer with the added bonus they are safe and much more comfortable I was really surprised to learn this after purchasing my donkeys as my horse is locked in the front for her safety. Why? She is not a donkey she is a horse smile. 

Donkeys freeze when scared so they are safer and more comfortable riding loose in the horse trailer and this helps them find a place to stand and hold their butt against the trailer to balance.  Most important consideration is to have a two door trailer in the back to unload them.

In an emergency situation I wanted to ensure I could get all of them in the trailer fast and by myself. I highly suggest each of you do the same as you don’t want to be training trailer loading and unloading during an emergency. Donkeys freeze when scared!

Six Steps To Successful Trailer Loading of Your Donkey or Mule: 

1.  Ensure Your Donkey or Mule Trusts You – Taming is number (1)

2.  Always load the honor donkey, horse or mule first as Donkeys Are Visual Learners if you load the naughty one first your trailer loading experience will not go smoothly.

3. Plan ahead, practice trailer loading and letting the equine stand in the trailer and eat go no where. After you load them to eat lunch stand on the outside and talk to them let them know they are safe.

4.  Practice taking the donkeys, mules and horses for rides, just give them 40 minutes or so of time to adjust to the trailer, get  their legs and not have any more stress on them. DO NOT TAKE THEM ANYWHERE AND EXPECT THEM TO GET OUT AND IN until you are sure they understand trailer loading.  Just go for a drive a few times, practice getting in and out at home.

5.  Remember when driving to accelerate slowly and stop slowly as it is very difficult for the equine to keep their legs on the ground.  If you don’t understand have someone drive the trailer and get in the back ride down a bumpy road and see what it feels like for your equine I think you will have a new perspective.

6.  Gradually work up to trail walks, yes walking next to the youngster as they are too young to ride and then riding when of age.  I think it is safer for older equine to have the opportunity to observe what is expected a few times before riding.  We did lot’s of these before Lily and Rio were old enough to ride (preparation) is the key.

7.  Another important consideration in teaching trailer loading and unloading; is do not take them out of the trailer when the truck stops wait for about ten to fifteen minutes.  If you take them out immediately upon the truck stopping they will expect it and get impatient every time the truck stops.  Equine learn from consistent repetition so remember to always be a good leader and have a plan be consistent.  When the emergency comes and they all come in life have a plan and be prepared as preparation makes the process much easier on the human and the equine.

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

I teach the owner or caretaker how to train the donkey using resistance free methods. No pain.  Are you ready to learn how to unlock the mind of your donkey? Please remember your donkey is smart he or she is waiting for you to learn how to lead and be a fair leader 100% of the time. Donkeys love and bond for life. Donkeys can live up to 50 years.

Donkeys are not like the horse in any way. Donkeys will never forget what they learned good or bad. Donkeys do not need a tune up to learn how to do something from the human they trust as a fair leader. The key is learning how to lead and not force.

Bringing home the trained donkey:

This donkey will pretend to know nothing. You must learn how to train your donkey to follow you as a fair leader. Earn the trust of your donkey. Never betray a donkey.

Donkeys look at a human and think;

  1. Treat dispenser
  2. Abuser
  3. Fair Leader

Which one are you?

 

I am married to my best friend and husband Scott of twenty-seven years, I am forever grateful to him for helping me keep my dream of farm living in the midst of trauma.  I am a survivor of a life-threatening car accident. We share our life with one Mammoth donkey, three mini donkey, two rescue standard donkeys, two horses, three dogs and one kitty.  

Donkeys, horses and mules are healing for humans they help us step out of our personal journey in life.  To know a donkey will forever change the human who wants to learn and love again. Many people call themselves horse trainers. A donkey trainer is at the top of the equine training game. Training a donkey takes personal work and letting go of our ego and goals in life. Donkeys are always On Donkey Time ®. Donkeys are game players.

God in Jesus Christ name is amazing! I share why Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and how my husband and I trust GOD to hold us tight in the middle of trauma. I am the survivor a a life threatening car accident. I am physically disabled. GOD is amazing! We continue to thank GOD for his Miracle of life and healing one day at a time.When I am pressed on every side by troubles, I am not crushed and broken.  When I am perplexed because I don’t know why things happen as they do, I don’t give up and quit. 2nd Corinthians 4:8 I pray my transparency gives you hope and the ability to never give up most importantly make Jesus Christ you Lord and Savior.  The bible is still my favorite book.
