Robert Redford: Protect our Wild Horses & Burros

Please read what actor Robert Redford has to say about our Wild Horses and Burros (donkeys)!


Straight from the Horse's Heart

Open Letter from Robert Redford as published in USA Today

Wild horse populations vary between 32,000 and 50,000 while livestock grazing allocations accommodate numbers in the millions. Yes, in the millions.

The Horse WhispererHorses and I have had a shared existence, personal and professional, for as long as I can remember. And while I carry a strong passion for all horses, my tenacious support for the preservation of habitat for wildlife and the American mustangs derives from their symbolic representation of our national heritage and freedom.

Any infringement on their legally protected right to live freely is an assault on America’s principles. The varied and subjective interpretation of laws intended to protect these animals on our public lands, continues to leave wild horses under attack.

Recent “stand-offs” between ranchers and the federal government are reminiscent of old westerns. But this American tragedy does not have a hero riding in to save the…

How Can I Ride Again?

Perhaps you think you are too old? 

Your body is no longer young and strong as you have survived hip, knee, back or even pelvis surgery such as myself. Never give up, you can ride again!  First step to success is finding a coach with a plan to help you pick the perfect equine with the training needed for your experience level and your personality. With the right instructor, coach, trainer, consultant anything is possible. Need some new ideas on how to achieve your dream of riding?   I am now accepting new world-wide students.

Perhaps you are confused as to the best equine for you; a mule, donkey or a horse? Take a look at my website select Donkeywhisperer.com next select our store for prices. My business website is in the process of being updated so current prices are 2014’s. My prices are going up in January 2015, save some money sign up before January 1st, 2015.

Select Testimonials to understand how virtual coaching works. 

Perhaps you own horses, donkey or mules and you never ride

I can  help you with ground work preparation so you know when it is safe to ride again. This is one of the many things I do best help you to do the preparation to stay safe and never get on until you and your equine are trained. I train you to train your equine. Fear is very real and if you are afraid you need to stay off and not get on and when you are on if you are afraid you need to get off. Do not listen to old cowboy rules I teach resistance free training and how to listen to your GOD given sixth sense. I teach you how to have a plan and learn to read the equine each and every time you are with them, stay in the leadership role without abuse.

I look forward to working with you in 2015, Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC. Select About Melody  to learn all about me.

Changing Sky

Beautiful blog

The sunset was amazing tonight in Southwest, Michigan. The colors intensified and changed during and after the sun went below the horizon. I was in an agricultural area and found the barn pictured above made for an interesting subject in the foreground.


For the next image I found this tangle of trees to look interesting as they stood starkly against the blazing sky…


For the final image I combined a man made element of some farm architecture with a grouping of trees as the sky turned a more deep red color.

Legend Of The Cross On The Donkey

He comes in the most unexpected ways

Mustard Seed Budget

Jesus donkey

Nobody every expected Jesus to be born in a manger. Nor was riding on a donkey worth calling a triumphal royal entry into Jerusalem.

The leading interpreters were completely blindsided by the appearance of the Messiah — partly because their envy blinded them, but also because they interpreted erroneously.

Try to resist making God fit your theology. He’s a boundary buster. He’ll surprise with unconventional means: Muslims who see Jesus in a dream and serve the Savior without leaving the mesquite, for example.

  • If this man were of God, He wouldn’t heal on the Sabbath.
  • Does anything good come out of Nazareth?
  • He eats with tax collectors and prostitutes.

Their exclusionary clauses eventually excluded themselves from the things of God.

This Christmas, don’t wait for Santa to come down your chimney. Ask Jesus to come into your heart. Don’t limit God.

Have You Ever Heard Of The Dummy Foal?

I am not a breeder, I am a world-wide virtual coach, consultant and trainer of the owners of horses, donkeys and mules. One day our new farm will be completed here in Sequim, WA and I will have on-site classes learning from me and experts in dental, saddle fitting, cart pulling and more. I have heard of the maiden mare syndrome where the mare refuses to feed her foal or will try to kill it. Never have I seen a foal who does not try to bond with his/her mother or try to eat, so powerful and interesting to see how this was fixed. This is why I am so passionate on learning as much as I can from all trainers and heath care providers world-wide. No one person knows everything.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2015!

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