Hello sweet friends,

Perhaps you are just reading my blog for the first time?

If yes, I pray you will return when you need to smile and find some inspiration. Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today, the reason my blog will bring you peace, and strength to never give up. I am a walking talking miracle, I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident while riding as a passenger, life is never ever fair. This motor vehicle accident has left me forever permanently physically disabled, something I would never ever wish on anyone, disability is invisible in many cases to others, sadly it is very real to the person suffering with a disability. I am no longer able to stand for long periods of time without rib, back and hip pain. I can never go for a hike again or walk on a beach, go dancing, ride my equine on trail rides or even ride for long amount of time due to hip, rip and back pain along with my feet going numb. Sitting too long is difficult too as my pelvis wants to be elevated. My ribs will spasm from over working my body in any way and even from laughing while sitting down. Still, I live my life grateful and full of hope and joy, living each day as it is my last. Why? I am a miracle, I am a survivor and I choose to live my life not as a victim but as a victor.

In 2014 I started the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business with my husband of twenty-three years. I work very hard to stay productive as I teach worldwide from my computer to my students computer “how to train a donkey, mule or horse.” Animals are GOD’s angels, healers sent to help us humans live our life with purpose and peace, I have loved animals since I was a child. Animals live in the moment if we humans could only learn to let go of anger, hate and grudges. Wow, what our world could be?

After the car accident my husband and I were forced to change our life 100%. We needed to move into land that would help me walk, no more hills, less rain as my arthritis is so bad. Looking ahead six years from the date of the car accident we have had an amazing journey. One of tears, pain, suffering, laughter and a grateful attitude. Before the motor vehicle accident I was a master gardener of flowers. I so loved to work in my garden, after the accident I could no longer bend and care for my flowers. We moved to our farm in Sequim, WA in 2014. God once again started whispering to me, and another beautiful creation in Jesus Christ name has been created, the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC, Sequim, WA surrounded by the beauty of the olympic mountains, we literally live in the middle of our hay-field. Wild life are entirely different in this blue hole called Sequim, WA.

Before we sold our home of fourteen years I carefully planned to take a few of my most favorite plants. This was not an easy decision as each plant was important to me when I designed and loved on my flower gardens in our former home. Here is a sneak preview of the miracle of life GOD in Jesus Christ name has placed into my heart, soul and mind. I so enjoy the garden, flowers are an important part of my life and now I am working on growing low sugar hay, and food for us. We planted a little fruit orchard last winter and I am grateful to share we have one peach and several apples. God just gave me another surprise a box full of baby birds. Nothing gives us a feeling of hope like a baby in human or animal form. Babies are like spring a new beginning, thus my first photo my little bird I am welcoming into this great big world with fresh water and bird food when he/she is ready.

Please no matter what you are facing in life never give up! God in Jesus Christ name is amazing. God will plant a dream and time can be years before the dream unfolds, this I know GOD will always take care of his children. We must trust, have faith and stay positive. This is never easy. Thus why I share my life with you.

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.

We expect to get 350 to 400 bales at 70 pounds each. You do not want to miss this local hay in Sequim, WA.

Make sure you get horse fence safe for horses, donkeys and mules. Never leave a halter flat or rope on any donkey, horse or mule when not in 100% attendance. Death or self-mutilation can be avoided.
