Florida Week for the Animals Returns for a 7th Year


Originally posted on Serenity Spell:

Florida Week for the Animals LogoNot to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission — to be of service to them wherever they require it. —St. Francis of Assisi

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.―Martin Luther King, Jr.

St. Francis watches over the critters in the gardens of the Ancient Spanish Monastery in Miami St. Francis watches over the critters in the gardens of the Ancient Spanish Monastery in Miami

We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly…. Humans compared…

“Yesterday as I was walking my horse to another pasture a very protective (select KillDeer bird) came out attacking me and my horse. She built her nest in our driveway. We placed traffic cones around her nest so as not to disturb her. I am excited to share these babies. Living on the new farm in Sequim, WA is a treat, a blessing, we thank GOD every day to get to live here.” Melody

One day we will have our hay planted, irrigation running. This is called a wheel line. Photo was taken on another farm in Sequim, WA. Farming is not easy and it takes GOD to create the miracle to make it happen. Thank you JESUS for the blessings and favor coming.

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:

Check out this blog for bird lovers and Jesus lovers!

Originally posted on Lee's Birdwatching Adventures Plus:

While reading in Isaiah lately, I came across this verse:

“Seeing many things, but you do not observe; Opening the ears, but he does not hear.” (Isaiah 42:20 NKJV)

When Dan and I visit aviaries, we spend quite a bit of time in them. Yes, we are birdwatchers and do photography, but it still amazes me the ones who come in, look around as they walk through, and then leave. They may be in there five minutes. We are there for 30, 45, 60 minutes or longer, depending on the size of the aviary.

Me and my big mouth causes me to speak up and point out birds they just walked by and never saw. Most times it is appreciated, but there are times when the kids (especially) only want to see the “big” animals. Well, a 6 foot Sarus Crane is “big.”

The Elk In Sequim, WA

The Elk In Sequim, WA

 20150501_172833Living in Sequim, WA is a treat to say the least, my child dream to get to live here as I was born in Western Washington State.  So many memories as a little girl playing in the Olympic mountains, rivers, Sol Duc hot springs, Forks, and the ocean. The Pacific Northwest is my forever home,  I am grateful for every day. 

Last week my husband Scott and I celebrated my fifty-fifth birthday with a stay at home vacation (not many real vacations with a farm.)  Here is glimpse into my world, living in the Great Pacific Northwest, Washington State, Sequim, WA.  A wild group of elk, they are gigantic!  Thank you JESUS they never come down to our farm as they can destroy a garden, fence and farm very quickly.

The Horse and The Mammoth Donkey Grow Up


lilyrio2015

We moved to our new farm and final destination in Sequim, WA on June 1st, 2014. Miss Lily lives with Miss Trophy our horse in training. Rio lives with two rescue donkeys no paper work Oboe and Tuba and Rocket Man lives with two new minis named Maximus and Roy.

Still Rio loves to go see Miss Lily at the fence and in the barn every chance he get’s and I let them graze together every now and again. I have learned the horse prefers the horse to live with and the donkey the donkey. All are different but she really loves her new horse.

Need help with setting up your farm, diet, hoof care, purchasing ideas, donkeys, mules or horse?

This is what I do for a living, I am a virtual worldwide consultant, trainer and coach to you the owner. I train you to train your donkey.
