Waiting Is Never Fun, Sometimes Waiting Is God’s Way Of Helping Us!


God is amazing, prayer is a wonderful gift from GOD to his children. If you feel stressed, take a moment and breathe. Pray and ask GOD to give you peace, as GOD is in 100% control of all things.


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

Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!

Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!


Hubby and I have been working on our farm since August of 2013. Another year has quickly disappeared, so many great and sad things have come and gone. We are most grateful to GOD for keeping us healthy; emotionally, physically and mentally. We are fifty-five now and this is one of our final bucket list destinations. Living our life simpler with less stress. 2016 we will celebrate our twenty-third year as a couple. Wow!

Great things:

Arena completed.

Hay cut and donated to starving horses as we will grow low sugar/protein hay (sell).

Enjoyed the Olympic Mountains over and over again.

Fences completed, stained.

I created an amazing food garden out of hanging baskets. After the house is completed I will have raised beds.IMG_20150519_133142IMG_20150519_133656IMG_20150519_133744

Living in the 5th wheel has been a challenge in the winter seasons but extremely easy in the spring, summer and fall as we have full sun on our farm, Sequim, WA.

Less rain has helped my body, arthritis and pain will be with me the rest of my life from the Semi-truck accident. Screws in my pelvis cause severe pain and arthritis.

Jewel our twelve year old middle dog had a very dangerous tumor (cancer) on her hip and tummy. Surgery was successful and she is healing she is one strong dog. Thank you Jesus!

We have a new puppy!


I created my own hand-made Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC Rope Halter/matching lead line with a brass snap and leather end. Sales are outstanding!!!! Thank you for supporting my small business.

Painful things:

Our dog Sampson died right before Thanksgiving as he had cancer.

Naturally we did the best thing;

We had our vet send him to heaven no more pain, I cried for three weeks and still call the new puppy his name. I will always love you Sampson! Sampson was our rescue Great Pyrenees/Akita. We had no idea he was sick until one week before he let us know with extreme screaming pain.

I thought I had a publisher for my donkey educational book, turned out to be a scam. Still praying for a publisher.


My hubby Scott and I are grateful to GOD to give us this farm, let us own the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and keep our marriage strong in the middle of some serious test and trials. We are best friends. If you get the opportunity to marry, marry your best friend. Love and friendship must go hand-and-hand as marriage is hard work.

Living in a small space is not easy but it can be done. We are a testimonial to this. IMG_6423

You Can Be An Angel

What If?

Dear Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,


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!


    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.




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!
