"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Did you know that praying to GOD is just like talking to a friend?

Yes. God in Jesus Christ name is waiting for us to talk to him. God wants us to reach out for the smallest things such as a parking spot. God loves his children all of his children. No person is perfect. God created us and he understands we all make mistakes. God forgives us the minute we ask for forgiveness. God gives us the courage and strength to never give up when things get way too difficult.  Never give up!

Like many people I was not a christian until later in my life. God has always been with me this I know for sure. God waits for his children to come to him “free will” and when we come he shows us exactly the right blessings, miracles, and even bible verse when we open the bible. As we grow with Jesus prayers are not answered so fast. God wants to see if we will wait and not complain while waiting.

I have learned that GOD in Jesus Christ name can plant a dream, seed, interest, desire inside of our mind but the final outcome can take days, weeks, months and years. The blessing is on its way the minute we trust GOD and pray.  Please understand we will never get every prayer answered.  Pain and suffering is all part of the world we live in as this is not heaven.

I am physically disabled but I have never stopped learning, sharing and enjoying my life. While I was stuck going to physical therapy for three years after surviving the semi-truck accident it hurt, I did not want to go. Three years is a very long time.  I was not strong enough to hold my bible. My husband gave me the bible series MAX Mclean bible so I could listen to the bible in bed. I prayed and prayed and when it was time to lift weights to increase my strength and muscles from atrophy I wore my horse and donkey riding gloves. I share this personal memory to help the person reading this blog post never give up. Its very hard to never give up and easy to give up. The end result will be better if we do not give up on life. A smile is everything to a person suffering. A prayer from you to the person suffering will give this person strength. Praying is truly a beautiful gift from Jesus Christ.


Why wear equine riding gloves to physical therapy?

My dream, goal was most difficult to ride again with large screws in my pelvis, broken ribs, a body that is simply shattered. For me visualizing riding again gave me strength. Perhaps this will help you in some way, thus why I am sharing. I had to see myself strong enough to ride again, my horse/donkey riding gloves did this for me. 

Eight years later;

I no longer get to trail ride or ride for long time frames but I do get to ride. I do get to train others to train the donkey via E-VIDEOS worldwide. Select http://www.donkeywhisperer.com/onlinetrainingcourse.htm to see our DONKEY 101 training series. I am now selling donkey soft yacht rope halters made to fit a donkey not a horse with beautiful outstanding lead lines and a brass snap. Dreams do come true! Helping others is something I love to do. Ensuring the donkey is treated with respect and never abuse is very rewarding. God has given me purpose. 🙂

Most importantly I was able to keep our farm and even grow our farm.  My husband is the reason this gift was given to me. Without my husband in my corner I would have never survived the semi-truck accident. My husband is a gift from GOD. I love my husband Scott so very much he is my best friend and my husband of twenty-five years. Our farm provides us with physical, emotional and mental health.  Our animals give us so very much more than we could ever give them.

2018 we will start selling riding reins. GOD is amazing!

We love all of life and we feel honored and blessed to share our farm and life with you. God gives us intuition and knowledge to make a good or poor decision. We just need to pray and ask for guidance.

After An Almost Fatal Car Accident – What Comes Next?


I try really hard to not be a victim, not be a whiner, not be a person who cries on my blog about the pain and suffering I endure daily from surviving an almost fatal car accident while riding as passenger.  I try really hard to keep my blog positive and stay focused to my purpose of creating the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business. I have no doubt GOD has me here for a reason. Perhaps my story will inspire you to never give up, let Jesus Christ hold you up when you are tired. Seems GOD created us to have free will. For some of us this is harder as we want to trust GOD but we begin recycling the problem, pain, money, suffering and then in exhaustion we cry out to GOD for help. I have learned to ask GOD for everything even a parking spot. 

My purpose; Helping the donkeys, mules and horses have a better life showing people resistance free training (without pain) is not only possible it is the best way to train equine this is indeed my purpose. 

Guess what I have learned while on this journey of teaching the owner or caretaker to train the donkey, mule or horse? 

It’s all about you! The donkey has sized you up in a matter of seconds.

  1. Abuser or bully
  2. Treat Dispenser
  3. Fair Leader Who Can Be Trusted

Remember the journey of life is short. We must not take a single day for granted at any moment everything can change. Change is what makes us grow. Change is terrifying without faith. Faith is something we feel we do not see. God asks us to trust him first. Next we must make a move. Show our faith. Most of the time after we do this we must wait. I think the waiting is a testing time. God is looking to see if we are real and will we trust him. I can tell you if you do not stop trusting GOD and live your life with gratitude, forgiveness to those who have harmed you and mostly yourself. Your life will explode with possibilities even you could never dream of. God is amazing! We humans are simply here to leave our finger print mark, a place for others to see we were here on the planet. Each of us has gifts and talents unique to what GOD has gifted us to do. The key is learning to trust what we love to do and then go do it.  Sometimes volunteering before expecting to work and earn money in a new profession is needed.

Shine your light bright for the entire world to see and never forget the moment you step out in life the critics will appear. Why? Some people simply are not going to like some people. It’s called life. Do not let this stop you from your dreams. These people have their own paths to take. Reminder it’s not about trying to please people. It’s about pleasing GOD. Say I am sorry and mean it when we make a mistake with another living human or animal and try not to repeat the behavior. We must try to work on ourselves it is the only thing we can truly change ourselves.  Forgive quickly. Live in the moment just like the animals.

All work with no relaxation or play is exhausting. Living in our busy world takes balance, planning and time management skills. We must take the time we need to recharge our batteries. Prayer is like talking to your very best friend it’s easy. Lord I know you are there in heaven. I need your protection, guidance and favor without you I am nothing. Sounds simple but many of us forget we must talk to GOD each day, never skip a day.

Our attitude is probably one of the most important things we can change; also one of the most difficult to change when enduring pain and suffering.  If we can learn to control our attitude we can create a massive chain reaction moving us into the life we want to create, share, enjoy and pass down as our legacy after we leave these human bodies.  I cry out for GOD to help me change my attitude as I don’t believe I am strong enough to tackle my attitude without Jesus Christ helping me.  Each of us has one life to live and it is our responsibility as adults to figure out our special gifts and talents and enjoy what we are given no matter how unfair it all seems.

I worked really hard to wait. GOD helped me wait and I could see the equine in the video camera surveillance as we have these in the stalls and pastures.

I could not put any weight on my pelvis for 90 days. The first thing I did after the car accident with the help of the walker was go see my horse and donkeys. Never give up!

Sadly I suffer from chronic pain daily, hourly since the almost fatal car accident in the spring of 2010. I just don’t understand why any person should have to have this kind of pain and suffering day in and day out.  Praying GOD releases me from pain and heals my body to 100% restoration, for now I must keep my head up and live life grateful most days I am pretty good. I am indeed a reminder to never invoke pain and suffering on any human or animal is truly awareness that I am trying to teach with GOD’s help I have indeed touched you in some way.  You will then make an attitude change and stop abuse of humans and animals as each of us is exactly in the right place to help others enjoy life.  Please do not let anyone abuse a human or animal. You can stop abuse!  God has planted you in the exact time and place to help another living animal or person. REMEMBER this could be you and you need a person to pay it forward. We get from life what we put into it, darkness or light. What do you chose? 

Yesterday was a hard day had another back spasm so bad again and I really don’t know why.  The metal in my pelvis messes everything up when I walk, bend, sit and stand and yet without the metal in my pelvis I would surely not be able to walk so it is a double edge sword one I work on mentally every single hour I am awake.

Writing is very therapeutic as it helps me help you.  Sadly, many of us live in isolation in this great big world, we think we are the only person suffering. Most people suffer it is the world we live in. Trying to live in the moment and help others is always a way to help us heal.

I share these very personal feelings in hopes my pain and suffering helps another human or animal not suffer so much.  GOD uses everything negative to help others and I pray my transparency helps you and gives you the courage to enjoy your life and push past the fears that are holding you back to enjoy this precious life.

Each of us has the same amount of time in each day and yet some people complete so very much more than others.  These are the interesting and perplexing thoughts that come into my mind all the time.  If you have survived trauma GOD has a reason to keep you here on earth.  GOD uses each of us to be a light in the dark for others. Never forget that GOD is good and he wants all his children to surrender to him with a simple prayer.

Please never ever abuse your donkey, horse or mule.  Please never abuse any human or animal and if you see abuse open your mouth and help the victim animal or human. You are a human angel. No other person can do what you can do as GOD has planted you in the perfect location. The key is to look for opportunities to be a blessing to others even when we are exhausted.

Please understand pain is not the answer to training horses, mules and donkeys.  Take the time it takes to train your equine after all you are the smart human they are just domesticated animals forced to live in the environment you created for them. Pain and suffering makes certain personalities of humans and animals fight back harder and one day the result can be deadly. Working with equine is a dangerous sport. Please be sure you have a great coach or trainer to teach you how to be a fair leader without abuse. Your family, work, and relationships all around you will flourish when you learn how to control your emotions. Animals are always looking for a leader not an abuser. People cannot learn anything from a bully. Please learn natural resistance free training techniques.

Here I am standing  in the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC office. Dreams do come true! Never give up!!!!

Be grateful for your life and what GOD has given you!  Do not treat your animals like prisoners in lieu of a partner.  If your horse, donkey or mule won’t come to you when you step into their world perhaps it’s time for you to figure out why? Sounds like a relationship problem and guess what outstanding relationships take time, prayer and patience.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
