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! 

Select Our Store to order coaching, training, consulting time with Melody Johnson, one-on-one. You can purchase gift certificates for artwork, training, Donkey Halter to fit a donkey’s head not a horse.

Donkey Whisperer Farm – DONKEY ROPE HALTER FOR SALE, NOT A HORSE HALTER

Donkey Whisperer Farm – DONKEY ROPE HALTER FOR SALE, NOT A HORSE HALTER

Why Use A Quality Rope Halter To Train Your Donkey?

Pinch your arm and feel how a little pressure feels on your arm. Now think about how a rope halter has perfect knots on the nose, helping the donkey learn when you turn left the rope halter knot is pressing in the precise place on the nose (right side) to tell the donkey to follow you.  

A donkey has a unique head, purchasing a horse halter will not fit your donkey and you will return it or lose money. Our halter’s are 100% guaranteed to fit your donkey.

End all training sessions on a good note.

How can I order my Donkey (Mini, Standard or Mammoth rope halter with matching lead line)?

Select Our Store If you require a 12ft lead line let me know ahead of time. I will have this made for you at no extra cost. Most people do not want 12ft of lead line to work with their donkeys. Our Mammoth halters come with 12 feet as well these donkeys are Mammoth donkeys. Our Mammoth donkey is 16’2 hands tall and he is longer than a small car.:)

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY, HORSE OR MULE WHEN NOT IN 100% ATTENDANCE TO AVOID SELF-MUTILATION OR DEATH.

minisropehalter

The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halters are made by hand in the U.S.A. QUALITY, Not Quantity. Each is made to fit your mini, standard or Mammoth donkey perfectly. Our brass screw on snap is a training tool. When you wiggle the rope the donkey understands whoaa. Our leather end has a large popper to make a nose in training too, never abuse your donkey.

I teach my students how to use my voice, timing, halter, to train the donkey and most importantly how the owner is the best person to train and stay in the leadership role with the donkey. Donkeys never forget anything so be careful you are teaching the donkey with quality short training lessons. Never drill a donkey, horse or mule.
