Did You Know Animals Have Personalities Introverted and Exroverted?


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

farm2014dec

I am now accepting students on your farm in the Sequim area as our farm is not completed yet, a work in progress. After we build our last home I will have classes here in Sequim, WA and virtual coaching will no longer be part of my business. I am working on an educational book and saving money to create an education DVD for sale in the future. 

Select OUR STORE to sign up for one lesson, five or ten. I pay Key Bank to manage all credit cards I never keep any credit cards on  hand ever. All lessons are banked and you can use whenever you have time. Most students meet with me once a week and spend fifteen minutes a day at least 3 times a week doing my homework. I train the owner of equine to train the equine via Skype, your videos and some of mine anywhere in the world. I do not train your equine I train you to train after I create a plan based on your needs and concerns and both of your personalities. My written homework brings instant results.

If you have been following my blog you know I am an extrovert (I can go introverted for short periods of time) I am married to my best friend Scott of twenty-two years, my beloved husband and guess what he is an introvert. This is actually proven to be normal for humans to choose the opposite personality of what they are as we crave what the other partner has, the opposite of what we do not have. I am by all means an optimist, creative and an innovator, I am most excited when I am working on a new project. I dream big and I love to share with others how to set goals and make their dreams come true. For me to be able to think, plan and become creative I crave quite. I need time to pray, and think with no distractions. Like some people I can’t create anything with too many distractions i.e., the television, I crave total quiet. After I have finished what is in my head the creativity and dreams, gifts GOD In Jesus Christ name has given me I crave human interaction too. I enjoy meeting new people who are like-minded, positive and have goals in their lives, as we will never be in this exact moment again. Every day we grow a day older at fifty-five I know I am half way done with my course in life.

Select Introverts and Extroverted Humans

MELODYRIORIDING2014SEQUIMAGE8melodylilygreatshotlabordayweekend2014

I am passionate about helping owners of donkeys, horses and mules train their own equine and never send off to a trainer, after all you will be the person feeding, doing the hooves.  If an abscess forms in the hoof you will be creating your own hoof poultice and iodine wrap, caring for the equine not the trainer. I teach you the owner how to have a plan to stay safe and be a leader 100% of the time. 

The Donkey, Horse and Mule did not choose you to come to your farm in most cases not all cases.

If you have the sixth sense like the equine have naturally and you understand animals your plan is to let the equine choose you! Sadly most people want what they want and do not care if the equine likes them or not. This causes big problems down the road as the equine has emotions, too.

MelodyLilybestshotlabordayweekendafteraride20114

Why Does The Personality between you and your new horse, donkey or mule matter?

Depending on the goals you are setting for your donkey horse or mule you need to understand that an extroverted donkey, horse or mule is going to excel at leadership, learning new things and leading this includes you if you are an introvert. You can learn to lead as an introvert but it will take some work. An extrovert will love leading on the trail rides, going to shows in most cases if not abused and burned out to show off. The introvert will not want change and will go for a trail ride as long as they can follow the extrovert equine down the trail and forget about asking the introvert to jump and do agility work with the mini and standard size donkey and ponies. Do you see why it is smart to learn all the facts before opening your wallet to purchase any equine?

Next we must think about what are the goals for our new horse, donkey or mule?

OBOLILY2014SEQUIM

Have a plan before purchasing your new donkey, horse or mule

it is imperative you not only let the equine choose you and trust you but also know the personality and spirit level and make sure your new equine is 100% sound (vet check for health and conformation) to ensure your new equine can physically do the work you require them to do and is of the age, physically, mentally ready.

Example if you find the perfect horse, pony, mini donkey, standard donkey or Mammoth donkey to ride as your jumping equine and show equine it is imperative you select an a strong athlete who is healthy and an extrovert.  No more than 20% of the weight of the donkey for riding including the saddle.

Introverts do not enjoy jumping, large crowds or anything new just like introverted humans prefer to stay home and read a book or watch a computer.  

“When I selected my horses and donkeys I can honestly tell you out of the eight we own, one did not choose me and after nine months he still has not. He trusts my husband but not me. His name is Maximus and I am giving him the time it takes to trust me as his previous trainer was a woman and sometimes donkeys, horses and mules.”

Highland The Flying Horse With His Owner Linda Parelli


highland and linda

PARELLIMELODYCERTIFICATE parelli certiificate

I was able to attend the 1st Parelli horseanality/humanaity course in Feb of 2014 and get my certification. I met Linda in person and her beautiful horse Highland. He has come so very far in such a short time. If you would like to work with me to help you understand how best to train your donkey, horse or mule’s personality and how I train you to train your equine I am excited to work with you.  Select Donkey Whisperer Farm Our store to sign up for classes. I AM NOT A PARELLI INSTRUCTOR AND I DO NOT TEACH PARELLI. I teach my methods, based on staying safe, having a leadership plan and not drilling or using old cowboy techniques for training, I teach you how to train the way the equine learns from his/her own species. Example, body language, timing, voice, and reward for a try to correct when naughty or aggressive.

Working with equine is dangerous you need a plan to stay safe. I enjoy teaching the owner how to lead and train their equine to pick up the hoof calmly for the trimmer/farrier. Come when called on the pasture, walk when you walk, back up when you back up, send into the stall, pasture or horse trailer. Never bite, strike, kick or fight with you the leader. Equine respect the leader of their herd naturally and if we humans are just throwing the hay over the fence and not staying in the leadership role we are teaching them that they are they leader.

Please never leave the halter on as the halter can cause death and self-mutilation. Learn how to call your donkey, horse or mule and have them come to you like a dog. :)

How Can I Train You From My Computer To Your Computer Anywhere In The World To Train Your horse, donkey or Mule?

A DONKEY STORY

A DONKEY STORY

Maximuspinchipssept2014 royboy2014decnewtofarmage4 Rocketmamcloseupcarrotsage2020134

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Did you know donkeys evolved from the desert? Donkeys can’t eat rich feed? Donkeys will abscess, founder and get laminitis from alfalfa or too much green grass, people food human deserts, and giving grain when not working hard?

Yes it’s true the donkey is a very special equine as GOD created the donkey to live on very little protein and sugar. So please do your research before feeding and caring for you donkey. If you do this your donkey will live a long life of thirty to fifty years. Yes donkeys need to be in our will like a parrot.

Select A Donkey Story

If you need help understanding diet, hoof care and how to keep your donkey healthy emotionally ad physically I am now accepting new students. I train worldwide via Skype and your videos, my homework. Select our store to see my business, please read my testimonials. All your lessons are banked as I am training you the owner to train your donkey I am not training the donkey. Each customer I work with is unique and has a personality and so does the donkeys. One size does not fit all when training a donkey, horse or mule.

I am certified in Horseanality/Humanality from the Parelli program. I am not a Parelli instructor.

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.

Donkeys In Need In WA State – Trainer and Guard Donkeys


Rocketmamcloseupcarrotsage2020134

Please remember a guard donkey needs to be at least a standard size donkey. Mini donkeys can’t  defend themselves against Coyotes. Select Coyotes kill horse.

If coyotes can kill a horse how do you think a small mini donkey can defend itself? Please use common sense. All donkeys should live with another donkey as donkeys are very social and need a herd buddy just like our horses do. For more information contact Melody at her e-mail Melody@Donkeywhisperer.com.

I am now accepting virtual worldwide students. Want to learn how skype works to learn from me? We Skype you ask questions I answer, I review your video’s and I coach you to fix any problem you have with your equine by providing you with detailed homework assignments. I offer a fifteen minute meet and greet before you sign up for virtual classes.
