Select GOFUNDME Widow In Need

A little about my situation my husband and I ran a small home business (unfortunately under his Social Security account) until 2006 when he had a stroke.  My dead husband had some recovery, my husband was older then me (I’m 52) so we lived comfortably off his retirement.

In 2009 I decided to take in special needs mini horses, I was not doing a rescue, these were minis that are my pets and I wanted to give them the best life I could no matter how long they would have. So I took care of the horses, donkeys and mules and my very sick husband.

In 2012 I found out I had lung cancer, I went through chemo and radiation, it was my husband and equine in need that kept me going through that year of hell.

In 2014 my husband’s health started to decline and he past away in November of 2014.  I was already in depression from the lung cancer and my husbands death just pushed me further in depression. 

Now all I have left in my life is my equine in need of special care, each has health issues. 

Because I have been out of the work place for so long I am having a hard time getting a job.  My husband (I am his fourth wife) we were together twenty-two years and legally married for seventeen years.  Sadly, he left everything to his kids and I am to young to get widow’s benefits, so I just need a little help to keep my animals until I get back on my feet.

I have been trying since my husband’s passing been selling things so I can keep my equine.  I have lost everything I don’t want to lose my donkeys and horses.  

 I have seven mini horses, two mini donkeys and two  standard horses.  Each has special needs that make them unbreedable, so I have them to make sure they are not bred or sent to slaughter most are under 30″.  These equine are my only family.

Please help me so I do not lose my family!

Cost to keep my equine family:

A bale of low sugar/protene hay is $21.95 a bale, a fifty pound bag of grain is $13.99 and senior feed is  $16.99 for fifty pounds.  Lamentic equine require special diets and hay is more expensive.

My farrier is wonderful she trims everyone every 10 weeks for $200 for eleven equine.

1) tinky palomino 28″ tall 10 yrs old bad underbite- extra dental visits

2) lily red/white pinto 28″ 9 yrs old curved back legs and have trouble keeping weight

3) Destiny bay/appy 30″ 7 yrs old-auction baby senitive digestion issues and a inside deformed shoulder she has a permanent limp and is on anti-inflamatory meds when they stop helping she will need injections in her shoulder

4)Rosie bay pinto 29″ tall 14 yrs old – she was abused consistly kept pregnant, the foal she had right before I got her was dead in the field, she was malnourished and full of lice

5) Buttercup chestnut 25.5″ 8 years old has dwarfism bad bent back legs

6) Dolly grulla pinto 26.5″ 9 yrs old has dwarfism

7) LG black/white pinto 28″ he is gelded and has teeth problems and peridonial diease

Social Media, Don’t Try To Win Over The Haters – Not The Jack Ass Whisperer


donkeywhispererfarm

For those of you who have been following my blog since 2010 you know how hard I have worked to create my new business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC. I try really hard to help people, pray and inspire people and yet I have found some pretty amazing things out about complete strangers especially on FB.

Seems no matter the post, or even just a photo I share their is always a few negative comments, attacks. Your photo is not straight, I took it with my cell phone.  I do not like your rules. I have a group named ON DONKEY TIME on FB, Secret group now. Rules are always given before entering my FB group named On Donkey Time.

The photography group I was in did not remove the attacker so I left the group. Groups need rules and negative people who attack should be shown the barn door. When people attack me or members on my group they are removed. Oh the peace when the trolls are gone.

Select Negative People Hate Success to read another blog’s approach on this issue.

Copied from the blog above

“The form of the harm can be much more complicated too. People can incorrectly take a comment you make out of context (which in some states could potentially be ground for a false light claim); they can share hurtful opinions (which are generally protected speech under defamation law); or expose a truth that is less than flattering to you (a statement isn’t defamatory if true).”

It’s never fun, no matter what, when someone is negative about something that makes you happy, proud, or excited. But along with death and taxes, it’s a given in our society. Here are some more ideas on how to handle the haters:

  • Don’t engage. This is the simplest, most straightforward, and easy way to subtly say “no thanks,” to negative people. They can be all pouty, mopey, angry, etc etc all they want, but you are having no part of it. Offer a smile, shrug, and move on to better things.
  • Remember that personal attacks aren’t always so personal. Again, negative people can lash out, be critical, or downright mean because it’s simply the path of least resistance for those emotions. It’s much easier to be mad at the world than to look inward, find the problems there, then take appropriate action to reach a solution.
  • Be in charge of your own positivity. The easiest way to let negative people get to you is by putting too much value into their opinions and not enough into your own. You don’t need outside validation for everything you create, every goal you make, or every success you enjoy. If you need feedback, it’s best to get it from someone you know is honest – and happy with themselves, as well. This way, you can get any constructive criticism you may need, but without the bite of hatefulness that will come from someone only too eager to point out the weaknesses of others.

And if you find you’re the negative person? It’s okay. Honestly. But it’s time to understand that you are powerful, capable, and strong. Here’s how to focus on the positive and leave your negativity, hate, and anger behind:

  • Take action. You are in charge here. You can make the change you want to see in your own life. Yes, it may be hard – it may be really hard – and you might fail before you succeed. But keep at it! If Plan A didn’t work, think of a new approach and try Plan B. Believe in yourself and start putting one foot in front of the other.
  • Surround yourself with positive people. Positivity is contagious! Catch a little for yourself by seeking out positive, driven, motivated, and inspired individuals. Be happy for them when they find success – and enjoy how good it feels when others are happy for you when you are successful.
  • Be grateful. It’s so easy to get caught up in what’s wrong or bad in life. But you’re missing out on all the good that’s happening around you – it’s like you’ve got blinders on and you can only see the negatives. So take a moment every day to be grateful for what you do have, where you have been successful, and for what’s going right.

Why Do People Attack Others On Social Media?

Well it’s easy, to get angry with someone you do not know and try to make them feel bad as there is no accountability. Doubt people would talk the way they do to others from behind their computer face to face. “Our world is becoming more and more disconnected from social interactions, fb, and the other social networks as they make it feel like you are connected to the outside world but really nothing is the same as being in a relationship with a living human or animal.” Hiding behind electronics and beating another human up for trying to start a business is really sad.”

Do these insults bother me?

No they do not, I look to JESUS CHRIST my Lord and Savior for my self-esteem, I continue to try to make the world a better place for donkeys, horses and mules. I pray for the people who are so negative they must beat up others on social media and keep pressing towards my goal of building my business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC. I continue to thank GOD I can talk, think, write and use my brain and not be negative. So much nicer to pay it forward then tear another down. I seriously feel sorry for people who do this.

My advice to you if you encounter this?

Walk away from trolls, yes I said trolls as these are people who work all day to destroy anything good in the world. Their job is to make you feel sad, cry and miserable. What they don’t understand is no one has this power over another human. I must give the power of my self-esteem away and I will never do this. I am a child of Jesus Christ. I am grateful GOD has given me the ability to withstand all I have survived. I pray for the negative people in our world who make bad comments about a photo that we share oh it’s not straight or its this or that. Really, find another way to make yourself powerful other than putting another person down.

How to handle attacks on social media?

Select Ideas To Protect Your business and Reputation

Sharing on social media is no fun when no rules are in place, make sure you are on a group that has rules.

Make sure if you join a group you have good administrators who remove trolls and stop attacks. If you have no rules the trolls will destroy anything positive and pretty soon they are the only ones talking on the group as the rest of the group is afraid of them.

Enjoy life, stay On Donkey Time, my business logo where life is slow and relaxed, like On Beach Time.

Select Sign-up For WebCast meet Flash, Rachel Ann Ridge and win prizes. This is a must read

FLASH flash

***************************************************************************************************************************

Need help training, caring (setting up your farm) for a happy healthy donkey?

I am a worldwide virtual coach, consultant and trainer of you the owner to learn how to teach your donkey to be a social good citizen on your farm. Picking up the foot, taking a walk, coming to you when called, loading in the trailer and backing out. I create a custom coaching plan based on your experience and goals for your donkey. I look forward to meeting you!

Ask me how virtual coaching works worldwide from my computer to your computer? Send me an e-mail Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com

How Does Virtual Coaching Work?

We Skype at least once a week for one hour as I am training you to train your horse, donkey or mule. I am training you how to be a leader and stay safe and never get hurt. I train you to read the body language of your equine and understand the personality, introvert or extrovert of your equine and yourself and match the energy, never hold a grudge. I give you creative ways to fix the dance you are stuck in with your equine.  I am training you how to think like the equine, and be a fair leader without abuse, as equine are black and white in all things they do, no gray areas, one look from my lead mare and all other equine run out of the barn. Just a look. Donkeys, Horses and Mules always learn best from the person they trust, respect and feel safe with, this is you!

Do I go to the barn with you to train, coach and consult you? No

Are you ready to learn how to lead/train your donkey, horse or mule?  

I look forward to coaching you to become the leader your donkey, horse or mule is dreaming of and making your dreams come true. I study human personalities, equine personalities and behavior modification. I understand fear, disabilities and how easy it is to give up. Never give up is my motto, trust GOD in Jesus Christ name for all things. I teach you how to read your equine and help them learn to do the things you are dreaming of. This is my passion keeping equine in their homes and making your dreams come true. We all have dreams and goals, even I hired a personal coach after the semi-truck accident. I have been a virtual student too.

Homework

I give you detailed homework based on your goals, no more than fifteen minutes of training time for your equine two or three times a week.  Quality time is better than drilling, never drill any horse, mule or donkey. You do the home work, ask a family member or friend to video tape you, send me the video to review. Smart phones are easy to send short videos.

4. I teach you how to use your voice, timing, energy and more to train your equine.

How Do I Manage Your Lessons?

I bank your lessons meaning I send you a receipt after each one hour training class via skype. Skype is free to download on your computer and is a wonderful way to learn as I can see you and you can see me anywhere in the world. You can ask me any questions and I will answer, if I do not know the answer I will find the expert in the area of your need. Skype lets me type to you and you can type to me and we each can send videos. You can purchase one lesson at a time, five or the best deal ten lessons.  I offer free video review (no charge) and I will not charge you to call me or text me with short questions. Your donkey, mule or horses welfare and meeting your goals along with keeping you both safe is my number one concern. All relationships take time, having a plan will increase the time of meeting your goals 100%. All equine are looking for a leader who will help them find safety, I teach you how to provide this need to your donkey, horse or mule.

Having a personal coach, trainer and consultant is a wonderful way to learn as each problem you need resolved is instantly removed, leaving you with no worries and more time to enjoy your donkey, horse or mule.

How long is homework?
No more than fifteen to twenty minutes of training (home work) in most cases. Less is more, quality training, never drilling.

Is my credit card safe to give over the internet?
Yes, I pay KeyBank Virtual Merchant a fee every month and every customer for them to manage your credit cards.  I keep no credit cards on site ever.

Help For A Friend In Need – Please Wear Your Helmet


IMG_2927

Select GOFUNDME Melisa’s Helmet Crusade.

One minute you are riding and the next minute you are on the ground. I have been bucked off way too many times in my life, I have seen people bucked off from horses who are bomb proof. Yeh right! All horses under fear can go into self-preservation and buck, rear or turn on a time and guess what we riders even the best riders can hit the ground. Our brain is the most important organ we have, thus why I wear my helmet. Next time I ride I am wearing a rib protector too as my ribs have been broken by the semi-truck and are way to weak to withstand any kind of fall again.

Will I stop riding as an accident can occur?

Never, I love riding but I am aware any form of riding or working with horses, donkeys and mules is dangerous and I must be careful at all times. Yes, I am an instructor worldwide and still I will wear my helmet every time I ride.

Do you wear a helmet?

Would love to hear the reason why you do or don’t. I do not judge anyone, it’s your body, your life.  I never wore a helmet as a kid, but we did not use seat belts back in the 70’s either. Much has changed and my health is very important to me. I pray this brave story helps save another person from death or permanent brain injury.
