Please Do Not Hit A Donkey


PLEASE DON’T HIT ME

If hitting a donkey (or any animal for that matter) produced positive results there would be very few naughty or dangerous donkeys. Hitting does NOT work, in fact, hitting your donkey only makes EVERYTHING worse and you, the human, lose every time!!

Hitting a donkey creates a huge disconnect between you and the donkey. The donkey simply moves into a deeper state of indifference, distrust and resentment. And take our word for it, donkeys will remember if you have been cruel, unfair or a poor leader.

We have never met a donkey that was inherently mean and hateful! Donkeys that are simply naughty are usually frustrated that they are not being heard. Donkeys are continuously communicating with us and telling us how they feel, what matter s to them and what they are fearful of. Donkeys will always give us a warning, the question is are WE listening?

Donkeys that bite, kick or strike are in psychological pain, physical pain or a state of heightened fear. They don’t need a ‘strong hand’ or a ‘good whipping’ they need a human that understands herd mentality, donkey psychology and knows how to listen, be patient and is a confident leader.

Even in severe cases of being kicked or bitten always walk away! Don’t escalate the situation by striking back. If you react by hitting or kicking your donkey you are the only one that is going to get hurt (we have seen people break their hands and their toes). Regroup and make a plan. Don’t go back to your donkey until YOU understand donkey psychology, how to build mutual respect and the basics of natural, non-resistant horsemanship (donkeymanship).

The bottom line is: Learn, become a good leader and watch your donkey respond with respect and a willingness to please you.

Stay ON DONKEY TIME. Never drill, learn how to read your donkeys behavior. Check out our donkey rope halter/lead lines and Donkey 101 video on demand. Donkey 102 will be released summer of 2017.

What If?


Dear Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

boysballoons2015

Have you ever had a dream, goal or deep Passion and then your mind says I can’t do that? What if?

This is what I say you do!

  1. Pray for wisdom and guidance.

  2. Write down your Action Plan Now.

  3. Do your homework (get a mentor/coach) on how to achieve your goal.

  4. Expect to wait as delays are for everyone, think about the goal not the bad stuff over and over.

  5. Never Give Up!

    MOST IMPORTANT, CREATE A TOUCH IT:

    REMINDS YOU EVERY DAY OF YOUR DREAM. When I was in physical therapy for three years I wore my horse riding gloves to lift weights. Why? I could see myself well enough to ride again even when I could not lift a one pound weight.

    FEAR IS FALSE EVIDENCE APEARING REAL

After surviving a life changing motor vehicle accident leaving me disabled for life, select GOD CREATED A MIRACLE FOR ME, I have learned life is short and fragile. Every minute, hour and day is important as we will never be here again, Never!!!!

Change is scary

Yes of course it is, and life has a way of making us wait for our dreams longer than we would like. Still do nothing and get nothing, move towards your dreams and goals and you will land someplace close.

Remember only you can make yourself happy, not your family. Only you can take a step towards your dreams and goals. We were created to Never Settle. Please Never Settle, Never Give Up. God Created His Children To Be Warriors.

When I was in the Emergency Room (Critical Care Intensive Care) I remember the lead surgeon telling me. “You are going to be ok, Melody”  I said why? He said because you are a fighter you are not whiner. We can tell in thirty minutes when trauma hits who is a fighter and who is a whiner. I will never forget his words. GOD made me to be a warrior and I pray he made you to be one too. Remember you are not a victim if you choose to be a victor and learn from the past. Move into the present and stay in the present. Enjoy every moment in life, squeeze the great stuff in life out and focus on the good stuff. Bad things happen to good people, this is a fact. The difference between a person who never gives up is they have faith and courage to change.

Life is full of changes and never forget nothing, I mean nothing stays the same. Life is like four seasons in our world. Spring, new beginnings, Summer, fun, fall, cool and time to slow down reflect and finally winter. Plan for Spring and a new beginning!

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

 Select STOP DONKEY BASKETBALL an old petition that we were able to stop this game. This blog post explains personalities of donkeys; Introverted donkeys lay down and stay down, pull back when scared or the rider is too heavy, people think they are stubborn, not true. Extroverts will buck, pull, rear and run and fall down get up and try to escape.
