We have been having a mild winter in 2015, no snow skiing, snow shoeing or snow pack whatsoever. So this little bit of snow in the mountains is a wonderful thing. We have been blessed with 60 degree weather in Sequim, WA last week and it was beyond nice. Mowed the lawn and was ready for spring. A cold front is coming in but is not expected to stay. I will go ride my horse Miss Lily today and a day it will be clear and beautiful. Enjoy every day as if it was your last as it could be. Life is fragile and precious, I thank GOD every day for my life and improved health.

Warm In The Pacific Northwest, Feb 2015


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

GOD has been smiling on us, giving us favor as we took a leap of faith packed our life away, left our large home and moved into our 5th wheel in Sequim, WA 2014. The winter of 2015 has been breaking records for warmth, we are now reaching 60 degrees most days and all of the hay is starting to grow again, soon it will be time to cut hay again. Seems while most of the east coast is suffering from record snow levels and freezing temperatures we are enjoying spring weather. Here are a few of the photos I have taken since moving to Sequim, WA our last stop here on earth.

Marriage is never easy, it takes two people who work hard to help one another achieve their dreams and goals for this I am grateful to GOD and my hubby Scott of twenty-two years. We enjoy our 5th wheel as it is a free life, less time to clean and more time to play. If we did not have a strong marriage and GOD to guide us give us faith this would be a journey that would be most difficult, with GOD in Jesus Christ name nothing is impossible. We have learned that you really do not need much to enjoy life, stuff is just stuff! You need a loved one your health, shelter and time to dance in your mind. I say in your mind as the screws in my pelvis do not authorize me to dance anymore, I am truly screwed down, locked down tight in my pelvis, cant twist, bend and still I suffer from pain and numbness in my feet almost five years later.

Living in the 5th wheel has provided us with freedom. We find more time to enjoy one another, the farm, the Olympic Mountains, ocean, rivers and of course all of our animals. Most importantly the flat land is a rehabilitation spot for me as I walk everywhere on the farm as it is flat. Animals are GOD’s angels sent to heal our souls so never abuse your pet, and always be grateful each and every day. As tomorrow what you had today could be gone forever. Life is fragile and precious, if you have your health you are rich beyond measure. I miss my health each and every day and continue to pray the pain will go away. Five years on April 13, 2015 since the semi-truck accident.

All of our eight equine are so relaxed and happy, this makes me and hubby beyond happy. We have two horses (mares), two standard rescue donkeys no paperwork, one Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson, and three minis.

I am happy to report I can now ride easier, train again and enjoy walking again as our property is mostly flat. Less rain makes it easier for me to move and the more I move the better I feel. If you have recently suffered from trauma I just want to say to you to trust Jesus Christ and never give up. No matter how bad the pain, never give up. My marriage has never been stronger and I am grateful to Jesus Christ for my husband of twenty-two years Scott. Scott is not only my better half he is my best friend. If we can only have one best friend in our entire life this is indeed a blessing but to get to marry our best friend this is a gift from Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for my life and husband. Trying to survive this thing called life without JESUS CHRIST and my husband would be indeed very difficult. Living with a life long disability is not easy and yet here I am working on my second year of running my new business a world-wide educational equine business for all donkey, horse and mule owners. GOD is amazing, never give up!

Wellness Check Vet Spring Shots On The Donkey Whisperer Farm 2015

Wellness Check Vet Spring Shots On The Donkey Whisperer Farm 2015

Why Do You Need To Have A Veterinarian Come To Your Farm at least once a year?

 Featured Image -- 31014

Rioage62012sept boyusdec2014 MinisgettingREMsleepminiscaleandar2014Rocketmamcloseupcarrotsage2020134IMG_2927Melodyplayinginthetallhayjune2014

Once a year I have all shots done by my vet and a wellness check.

Why would I do this when I can give the shots myself and save money?

  1. The vet needs to have a detailed plan to know the health and history of the equine they are caring for. Just like we need to see the doctor once a year for health and welfare checkup so does our vet. In an emergency my vet will come to my farm asap. If I have no history with my vet I may or may not be able to get a vet when an emergency comes and believe me on a farm they come.
  2. Having a wellness check and shots as needed tetanus and westnile at a minimum (depends on your exposure from other equine what shots are needed) saves me money along with the teeth opened and looked at some years nothing needs to be done.
  3. The vet will notice things we can do to save me money down the road such as teeth that need to be done again, i.e, my black mare Trophy just had her teeth done in September of 2014 she now has sharp points in five months these grew. They are so sharp they are pushing into her gums.
  4. I have a horse Palomino that gets hives her shots are spread out to not over load her immune system.
  5. Fecal samples are taken twice a year to prevent resistance free parasites (worms) on the farm. Once a year I give a wormer that hits everything to include removal of tapeworms. Your vet will tell you which wormer works best in your part of the world.

Took this photo of Roy’s(new mini donkey) tooth, sent a photo to my vet and will find out if this is normal or not looks painful. I always check the mouth and double-check to see all are eating and drinking, pooping to prevent colic. Poor oral health is a huge problem for optimum health and care of our domesticated equine just like us people. Why? In the wild they are eating sticks and things that grind down the teeth in domestication it is soft hay and grain. No donkey needs grain ever. Never feed alfalfa or any grass clippings to your equine. Test your hay for the best health results.

Please remember the cheapest item you will buy is the horse, donkey or mule.

Health care is 100% your responsibility! Keeping your domesticated equine in optimum health is easy when you do your homework and find a vet who has experience with donkeys and mules not all do. Same with the trimmer/farrier not all have experience with donkeys and mules so do your homework. 

As needed my vet will refer me to a specialist;  When I need a specialist as us humans do when sick my vet will do the research and send me to the best available closes as possible to my farm.Chiropractor has been needed in the past and a tooth specialist as Rocket Man is 22 this year a few years ago he had a tooth break. We had to have a tooth specialist dig it out. Rocket Man had oral surgery, I.V. in his neck and this took 4 ½ hours. Dr. DeLorey was able to successfully get the broken fragments of tooth out long by the way. If any were left in he would have got an infection and had to go to a trauma hospital costing us more money.

Trimmer/farrier when needed. If you are trail riding you will need shoes or boots for your horse, mule or Mammoth donkey.
