Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC
I am now accepting students on your farm in the Sequim area as our farm is not completed yet, a work in progress. After we build our last home I will have classes here in Sequim, WA and virtual coaching will no longer be part of my business. I am working on an educational book and saving money to create an education DVD for sale in the future.
Select OUR STORE to sign up for one lesson, five or ten. I pay Key Bank to manage all credit cards I never keep any credit cards on hand ever. All lessons are banked and you can use whenever you have time. Most students meet with me once a week and spend fifteen minutes a day at least 3 times a week doing my homework. I train the owner of equine to train the equine via Skype, your videos and some of mine anywhere in the world. I do not train your equine I train you to train after I create a plan based on your needs and concerns and both of your personalities. My written homework brings instant results.
If you have been following my blog you know I am an extrovert (I can go introverted for short periods of time) I am married to my best friend Scott of twenty-two years, my beloved husband and guess what he is an introvert. This is actually proven to be normal for humans to choose the opposite personality of what they are as we crave what the other partner has, the opposite of what we do not have. I am by all means an optimist, creative and an innovator, I am most excited when I am working on a new project. I dream big and I love to share with others how to set goals and make their dreams come true. For me to be able to think, plan and become creative I crave quite. I need time to pray, and think with no distractions. Like some people I can’t create anything with too many distractions i.e., the television, I crave total quiet. After I have finished what is in my head the creativity and dreams, gifts GOD In Jesus Christ name has given me I crave human interaction too. I enjoy meeting new people who are like-minded, positive and have goals in their lives, as we will never be in this exact moment again. Every day we grow a day older at fifty-five I know I am half way done with my course in life.
I am passionate about helping owners of donkeys, horses and mules train their own equine and never send off to a trainer, after all you will be the person feeding, doing the hooves. If an abscess forms in the hoof you will be creating your own hoof poultice and iodine wrap, caring for the equine not the trainer. I teach you the owner how to have a plan to stay safe and be a leader 100% of the time.
The Donkey, Horse and Mule did not choose you to come to your farm in most cases not all cases.
If you have the sixth sense like the equine have naturally and you understand animals your plan is to let the equine choose you! Sadly most people want what they want and do not care if the equine likes them or not. This causes big problems down the road as the equine has emotions, too.
Why Does The Personality between you and your new horse, donkey or mule matter?
Depending on the goals you are setting for your donkey horse or mule you need to understand that an extroverted donkey, horse or mule is going to excel at leadership, learning new things and leading this includes you if you are an introvert. You can learn to lead as an introvert but it will take some work. An extrovert will love leading on the trail rides, going to shows in most cases if not abused and burned out to show off. The introvert will not want change and will go for a trail ride as long as they can follow the extrovert equine down the trail and forget about asking the introvert to jump and do agility work with the mini and standard size donkey and ponies. Do you see why it is smart to learn all the facts before opening your wallet to purchase any equine?
Next we must think about what are the goals for our new horse, donkey or mule?
Have a plan before purchasing your new donkey, horse or mule
it is imperative you not only let the equine choose you and trust you but also know the personality and spirit level and make sure your new equine is 100% sound (vet check for health and conformation) to ensure your new equine can physically do the work you require them to do and is of the age, physically, mentally ready.
Example if you find the perfect horse, pony, mini donkey, standard donkey or Mammoth donkey to ride as your jumping equine and show equine it is imperative you select an a strong athlete who is healthy and an extrovert. No more than 20% of the weight of the donkey for riding including the saddle.
Introverts do not enjoy jumping, large crowds or anything new just like introverted humans prefer to stay home and read a book or watch a computer.
“When I selected my horses and donkeys I can honestly tell you out of the eight we own, one did not choose me and after nine months he still has not. He trusts my husband but not me. His name is Maximus and I am giving him the time it takes to trust me as his previous trainer was a woman and sometimes donkeys, horses and mules.”
I am now accepting new worldwide virtual students to train.
