Do You Know What Plants Are Poisonous For Your Horse, Donkey or Mule?


OLD POST – 2012

Owning a small farm is a dream come true as I had been praying to GOD to own a horse again since I was a teenager, GOD answered my prayers in my late forties.  I am here to say “Nothing is impossible with GOD in Jesus Christ precious name” living on a  farm is indeed a gift from GOD and I am forever grateful for GOD’s favor and blessings. It is my pleasure to share information and a few photos with you. Enjoy!

Watching our beloved equine do one of their most favorite things, graze and munch away on good clean low sugar hay is a wonderful thing, it is truly a blessing.   For me listening to them chomp away on safe low sugar hay has a similar relaxation feeling as listening to the ocean as it calms my soul.   The farm girl is forever deep instilled in my soul, thank you Jesus.

 Here are a few links for Western Washing toxic plants:

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Hi Melody,

I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.

The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)

Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.

I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.

Have an awesome weekend:)

My dream to make a quality rope halter that fits a donkey not a horse came true last year when I started working with my wonderful contractor. I am proud to share our rope halter is hand-made from quality yacht rope to never mold.

How can I wash my halter?

Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and let dry. Yacht rope will not mold.

wp-1457445180653.jpg

The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halter is made to fit a mini, standard or Mammoth donkey, not a horse!  No measuring for the mini or standard. Mammoth donkeys require you to measure as they each have a unique head size. Our halter will fit from four-months to full-grown in the mini and standard sizes.

We do not nickle and dime you, our price is one price. When you purchase from us in the United States Of America the price includes the rope halter, brass screw on snap, leather popper (training never hit your donkey). Packing, shipping and tax. Out of the USA send me an e-mail with your shipping address for a quote to ship. My e-mail is Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com or call me at 360 620-5868.

I stand 100% behind my Donkey halters. If you do not like the halter or it does not fit I will refund your money as long as you return to me in the same condition I sent it to you. Most of the photos are of our customers donkeys not our farm. All of my customers are happy with the fit and quality!  I have never had any halter returned to me other than a MAMMOTH halter. This is when I learned I can not make an adjustable halter for a Mammoth donkey.

ORDER NOW as our store is stocked again. We pay Keybank to manage all credit cards, I never see your credit card ever. You will receive an automated e-mail stating your credit card was charge and what you purchased, I will receive the same. Next I will e-mail you with a Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC receipt and a tracking number to follow your halter travel to your farm.

I am proud to announce I am now training Rio to wear a combo bit.

My goal for Rio has been to pull a cart safely. We live on a farm close to three highways. Cars, motorcycles, joggers, skate boarders, airplanes and more are passing us on a regular basis.

Rio is an introvert donkey. Meaning how I train him is 100% different from how I train extroverted donkeys and mules. We must have empathy for the introvert, give them time to adapt to change as if we place too much pressure on the introvert donkey, horse or mule they will simply lay down and not get up or explode with anger. Ulcers are directly connected to stress in equine. Please understand animals are just like people they need to have compassion and empathy when training them. We humans must stay a fair leader with a plan each and every time we enter their world. Safety is always number one in my mind when teaching and training both for the human and the equine. 

Any equine working in this situations needs a bit for safety. I am training Rio to wear the bit gently. Light hands are a must when I train my horses and donkeys.

I promise to share more updates. Thank you for reading the Donkey Whisperer Farm blog.
