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!

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

MeMoby

Select Our Store to order lessons.

 

Hi Melody,

I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.

The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)

Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.

I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.

Have an awesome weekend:)

My dream to make a quality rope halter that fits a donkey not a horse came true last year when I started working with my wonderful contractor. I am proud to share our rope halter is hand-made from quality yacht rope to never mold.

How can I wash my halter?

Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and let dry. Yacht rope will not mold.

wp-1457445180653.jpg

The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halter is made to fit a mini, standard or Mammoth donkey, not a horse!  No measuring for the mini or standard. Mammoth donkeys require you to measure as they each have a unique head size. Our halter will fit from four-months to full-grown in the mini and standard sizes.

We do not nickle and dime you, our price is one price. When you purchase from us in the United States Of America the price includes the rope halter, brass screw on snap, leather popper (training never hit your donkey). Packing, shipping and tax. Out of the USA send me an e-mail with your shipping address for a quote to ship. My e-mail is Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com or call me at 360 620-5868.

I stand 100% behind my Donkey halters. If you do not like the halter or it does not fit I will refund your money as long as you return to me in the same condition I sent it to you. Most of the photos are of our customers donkeys not our farm. All of my customers are happy with the fit and quality!  I have never had any halter returned to me other than a MAMMOTH halter. This is when I learned I can not make an adjustable halter for a Mammoth donkey.

ORDER NOW as our store is stocked again. We pay Keybank to manage all credit cards, I never see your credit card ever. You will receive an automated e-mail stating your credit card was charge and what you purchased, I will receive the same. Next I will e-mail you with a Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC receipt and a tracking number to follow your halter travel to your farm.

Warning Dog Panting


wp-1455713805854.jpg

 

Select Excessive Panting 

Excessive Panting And Drooling Can Be A Life-Threatening Sign That You Shouldn’t Ignore. Read More!

Dogs do not have the ability to sweat all over their bodies like we do. They only sweat on areas that are not covered in fur, such as their paw pads and their noses. Because of this, they rely on panting to cool down in hot temperatures. It’s a fairly poor cooling system, which means we need to be aware of the warning signs of overheating so that we can care for our pups properly.

We have all heard the horror stories of dogs being left in hot cars, and suffering from heatstroke or death after only a few minutes. Heatstroke can occur from a number of different sources. Overexertion in hot temperatures, being left in a hot car, and walking on hot pavement are all bad ideas for your dog.

A dog’s normal temperature is 101.5 degrees.  A degree up or down is a normal fluctuation, but anything more than that in either direction is a cause for concern. It doesn’t take long for a dog to overheat. As little as 10 minutes inside a parked car can be deadly to some dogs. Be aware of the signs of overheating so that you can react appropriately!
