World-Wide Virtual Coaching, Training For You The Owner Of A Donkey, Horse or Mule?

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

I have been a Parelli student since 2007 after purchasing a twenty month filly Miss Lily and Rio (our mammoth donkey) at nine months with Rocket Man (13 years) our mini donkey.  I am not an instructor of Parelli. I also have videos and have studied Meredith Hodges, Lucky Three Ranch, Clinton Anderson, Chris Cox and many more. You could say I learn from as many sources as possible as no one person knows everything.  In April of 2010 I survived a semi-truck accident leaving physically disabled for the rest of my life select GOD Created A Miracle For Me.  After three years of physical therapy I was finally able to travel, my first trip was to complete the Horseanality/Humanality Course in Florida with Linda Parelli and Dr. Handley. This course was powerful for me to read all equine personalities and humans whom I interact with in my personal life and my world-wide coaching, consulting and training the owner (humans) of equine.  My new world-wide business is Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC you can take a look at what I do by selecting the link http://www.donkeywhisperer.com

I started out helping people for free all over the world after surviving a semi-truck accident in 2010 it was a way for me to have purpose and still stay connected to my passion in the donkey world. Today I coach, consult and train owners for horses, mules and donkeys from my computer to their computer via skype, my cell, instant message, facebook and e-mail. I have helped over 65 people since 2010 in France, Norway, Australia and all over the U.S.A.

What is resistance free training?

Resistance free training in my words is you the owner are always thinking and planning ahead to have a plan for your donkey, horse or mule. You are the leader without a twitch, without bending the ear, without a beating with a big two x four. You never with hold water from your equine or food for punishment. No making them stand to the fence for hours or wear a saddle or halter for hours on end. You are the leader in a safe way, and you never let anyone including the farrier hurt your equine.

Pain is old school way of training an equine

I teach you the owner how to train your equine without pain, think about how you learn. Do you learn from a person who hurts you slaps you in the face over and over if you do not sit still for the dentist. Drill Sargent personality or do you learn how to become the best you can be from a person who engages you into learning, a person who will share the world with you in whatever new field you want to learn? I say world as it feels like this when we learn something new. It feels like we are stepping into a new world experience and for our equine this is how they feel. A human who will entice you to share the world with them? Do I discipline my horses and donkeys if they are dangerous and not behaving yes, but I do not abuse them ever.

If you want to learn a new way to train give me a try the first 1/2 hour is free. My skype name is Donkeywhispererfarm2010 and my cell is 360 620-5868.  We skype once a week and I give you detailed homework assignments I type out in Skype to you. Next you provide me with a video of your homework and we discuss how to improve your results and what I see in your timing and your equines response. Remember to match the energy of your equine.

We are building a world-wide education center for Donkeys, Horses and Mules in Sequim, WA. A place to learn from veterinarians who specialize in the diet, hoof care, and more of the donkey, horse and mule.  Our first course, grand opening of my new business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC on July 17, 18 and 19th, 2015 (Friday-Sunday) with Nate Bowers teaching how to train our equine to pull a cart. You must have a foundation before you start training any equine to pull a cart as this is a dangerous sport.  Sign-ups will be starting this summer for next summer attendance as we are moving from Kingston to Sequim, WA.

I am excited to share I am now certified in Horseanality/Humanlity.

What does this mean for you? I can help you determine if your equine (horse, donkey or mule) is an extrovert or introvert and create a custom training plan you can use to train your equine yourself. No need to travel or send them off to a trainer. Donkeys, horses and mules learn best from the human they trust and adore with great leadership skills and no abuse, I can teach you how to stay safe and not abuse your equine, stay a leader 100% of the time. I am Not A Parelli Trainer, I do not teach Parelli.

You can do this!

Select testimonials as I have helped people in France, Norway and all over the world from the comfort of my computer to your computer.  I teach my method to you on how to be a great leader and never drill, no more than 15 minutes per training exercise is your homework timeframe with your horse, donkey or mule as drilling never works. Equine need time to soak and think about what we taught them.

I ride my horse Miss Lily an extroverted fast quarter horse (a little Seattle Slew in her) and my introverted Mammoth donkey Rio with no bit and no spurs. I point to the horse trailer and they get in. Simple stuff, I will teach you how to be the leader for your equine without abuse.

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





A Ride On Miss Lily No Bit, No Spurs

lilymelodybittlessbeautiful lilylookinginwoodsbitttlesssogood

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Yesterday I was able to get back on Miss Lily for a thirty minute ride, I have to use the stair steps to get on.  I rode her with no bit just her Parelli rope halter and no spurs as I do not use spurs.  Whenever I start a horse, donkey or mule I start them in baby steps. “The bit comes last and is never used with a beginner rider, I always put the bittless bridle on for beginners.”

Never get on a horse without making sure you have a connection “I Say Make Sure You Have Their Head”

I have been a home study student of Parrell since 2007.  I am very grateful to this program as my horse and mammoth donkey are trained to not move when I board or get off. Remember mounting and dismounting is the most dangerous part if the equine spooks you can be drug in the stir up.  I planned ahead and trained my equine to have a strong foundation for riding, I train using verbal words along with physical cues.

If you do your ground work and make your foundation solid no bit is required to ride a horse.  The bit is really bad for beginner riders as we humans should never ever pull on the mouth when riding.  Like a musical instrument the bit is to be used lightly.  Miss Lily did neck reining for the first time with me on her as I have not been able to ride for over three years.  I teach all of this stuff on the ground as preparation is safety and as you can guess I am into safety after surviving a semi-truck accident leaving me with thee large screws in my pelvis and pain each and every day.

Think about how you feel when pain is given to you?

All of my donkeys and horse understand verbal words they do not need to be hurt to learn they learn from clear communication along with consistent training techniques. A treat helps tremendously with the correct timing and the equine not demanding the treat.

It’s hard to see how unfit we both are after three years but with time I believe both my horse and me will get fit again.

One day this dream will come true!

Thank you for all of your prayers, GOD heard them!  I am truly a miracle and I am grateful to Jesus for this little thing called life, it is my desire to pay it forward and help others the best I can. If you have donkey, mule or horse questions send me an e-mail at Melody@donkeywhisperer.com.  I am free until I am strong enough to start my consulting, coaching and training business.  “I will be coaching, consulting and teaching the owner how to train the donkey, horse or mule with the end result of you becoming the Donkey Whisperer for your farm.”  


GOD in Jesus Christ name is amazing!





Donkeys Come In Two’s

Thinking About Getting A Donkey?  We purchased Miss Lily my quarter horse mare at twenty months old, a baby Mammoth donkey, and a mini donkey in 2007.  With my information technology background and project management skills I began reading, and researching everything I could get my hands on to understand the donkey.  Select Donkeys Come In Two’s to read how I learned how important it is to always have two donkeys.  When they go to the vet take the donkey buddy with them, as the donkeys will stay calmer and heal faster. LILYLICKINGRIO Horses should never be left alone either as they are a herd prey animal and they need to have another equine to feel safe, lay down and get REM sleep, play etc., It has always been my plan to get my horse Miss Lily another horse due to the semi-truck accident in 2010 this goal was put on hold.  One day she will have a horse to be with as horses need horses and donkeys need donkeys.  Lily, Rio and Rocket Man all get along well but the boys (donkeys) are very close and Lily is kinda the third wheel.  Rio will groom Lily and Lily grooms Rio like book ends they are beautiful together and will always be close no doubt.

Donkey3 OURBOYS2012PLAYINGriorocketman2012july Select Boys playing to watch youtube video. Can A Donkey Live Alone Without Another Donkey? Yes, of course but the donkey will not be in optimum health, will not be happy, will bray more and can get violent towards another animal species such as a goat, cow or sheep.  Why?  Well donkeys like to play tug, grab the neck of the donkey buddy and they are very intelligent much more than the horse as they can think all the time.  Donkeys get bored much faster than a horse.

Horses, Donkeys and Mules Are Helping People With Disabilities

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,


Did you know that people with disabilities are being helped each and every day by getting to spend time with an equine?

Yes, some can only help groom them, feed and pet them, talk about their problems while others can actually ride even when they can not walk due to being paralyzed.  Equine are healers, sent by Jesus Christ to help us humans navigate this thing called life.

Advocates Need Help to Stop Donkey Roping

We stopped this before we can do it again! Please re-blog and start taking action to say NO TO DONKEY ROPING. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

  •  Gentlemen,

    Subj: Donkey Roping Event to be held on May 25th and 26th, 2013.

    I study equine behavioral science extensively under the Parelli home study program. I have personally owned a Mammoth donkey and mini donkey along with my horse for six years now, I would like to share with you how sensitive and smart the donkey is. I am the voice for the donkey as they have no voice.

    Are you aware that donkeys are indeed smart, sensitive and a lovey equine?

    Are you aware the donkey never forgets anything and is very intelligent? Donkeys that are not abused are more like a black lab than a horse, they love their butt rubbed, hugs, kisses and kind words. Placing donkeys in this abusive and traumatic environment is abuse there is no other word for this than abuse this is not entertainment, this is abuse.

    Please consider the cry of these magnificent and highly social and intelligent donkeys to not abuse them for money. Donkeys are much different from the horse in the respect that when under deep stress they freeze and do not move. Cows will run out the shoot but donkeys freeze thus the need to use the cow shocker on them. These traumatized donkeys can have fatal consequences for a few minutes of Cowboy fun and the greed of money if they survive they will more than likely have permanent Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and not be able to fit into the human social world ever again.

    I am respectfully asking that you stop this event and do not use donkeys for this event.

Donkey roping is a cruel and completely unnecessary “sport.”

It has come to our attention via the poster shown that a donkey roping event is scheduled for May 25 and 26 in Welch, OK. We stopped ropings in Eden, TX and Van Horne, TX last year. Please send letters and call to get this one stopped too!

The information below will help you in writing an informed letter, and contact names and information are listed. Please keep your messages respectful as it will do a much better job of reaching people (in spite of how angry this makes us all).
