BE SMART LIKE A DONKEY!
Donkeys are into self-preservation;
Donkeys will not run into any new space without checking it out from top to bottom.
Sadly, the donkey is called stubborn. The donkey is not stubborn they are smart, smarter than most humans. We humans can learn a great deal from the equine (donkey) who has lived on the planet the longest.
Have you ever bartered with a person?
Example; One Hour Massage for One Hour of Your Expertise, tractor clearing and making my yard beautiful.
You run right into the barter after all this person contacted you with this great idea and you bought the sales pitch. You give 100% of your time, experience and passion.
Wait for it!
The person who contacted you refuses to call you back, excuse after excuse with how busy they are. Now your yard is full of weeds, dirt and rocks. Sadly many people are looking for trusting people to take advantage of. One of the things I have noted is these people contact me and they come up with this great plan of what they want me to do for them. My career is teaching people how to train a donkey, mule and horse and I sell (100% quality YACHT ROPE hand-made in the U.S.A.) a rope halter with matching lead line to fit a donkey not a horse. I sell a little artwork too.
Can bartering work?
Yes! A successful barter takes two honest people.
Donkeys who have been abused
The donkey who has been betrayed by a human (abuse or not fair in training) will have a very difficult time trusting humans again. If a woman trainer used abusive techniques that are not fair with a donkey such as locking them in a small isolated space for days and withholding water or worse. The donkey will NEVER FORGET A WOMAN IS NOT TRUSTWORTY, the donkey will trust a man but not a woman.
Can this be fixed?
Yes and No. Depends on the human doing the rehabilitation and the donkey. Do you have a detailed plan to help the donkey learn and trust again? Relationships take time, and doing the right thing day in and day out. Nothing is fast in the donkey’s world. Our logo for Donkey Whisperer Farm is “ON DONKEY TIME.”
Vise or versa a man abuses a donkey, the donkey will trust a woman first over the man. “Donkeys never forget a thing good or bad, so make sure your training is fair and correct. Donkeys can’t be bribed treats they are smart, another virtue I so admire as I will not sell my soul for money either.”
The person who asked you to barter makes this sound so wonderful right? Think like a donkey, question every detail and do not jump in. This way you will not be taken advantage of. Bartering only works if both people are trustworthy.
“GOD will take care of his children, do not get bitter, simply learn the lesson.”
Life is a big lesson, we learn when we fall down, the key to success is getting back up again and not staying bitter. GOD knows what he is doing to prepare us for the next level in our life. Most important do not quit! Do not give up!!!!
The Donkey is a great teacher!
Bartering can only work if the person you are bartering with is honest. I have owned my small business “Donkey Whisperer Farm” for two and half years now and boy, the lessons I have learned. Animals are always honest.
Honesty is rare today. Not all people are dishonest I have met some fantastic people in our great big world. I have met some really amazing people while trying to save the donkey, horse and mule from abuse and the wrong diet.
