Happy New Year 2017! Ready To Train Your Donkey?

Happy New Year!

happy-new-year-2017-gif-images

I love the beginning of the new year as this is a time to reflect on our past dreams and goals. Thank GOD for all of our blessings. Plan for the new year projects and goals as some dreams were planned years ahead and now they are ready to be born. Living on a farm teaches life has seasons.

Spring, summer, fall and winter:

All of these seasons are very important for the farm crops to grow. Just like the farm has seasons so do people.wp-1458048428556.jpg

Time management is important as our world is spinning faster and faster each and every day.

The difference in completing goals and not is making a plan, asking experts for help. Education is a life long process, the mind needs to continue learning to stay strong. I enjoy teaching just as much as I enjoy learning.  No one can do everything without help, sometimes it is hard to ask for help. We all need one another to make the world a better place. I enjoy training the owner to train the donkey. Why? Donkeys are smart not stubborn. The donkey is always looking for a leader who is fair. Never for a bully or abuser.

We pray, wait and work hard for everything we do. Patience is very important while waiting depending on the issue and our personality this can be easy or difficult. This I know for sure. If I do not pray, prepare and plan nothing will change. I want to try to make a difference in this great big world.

Training Donkeys Takes Having A Plan:

Donkeys are smart not stubborn!

Donkeys look over a human in a matter of seconds and before you know it the donkey has trained the human to do exactly what the donkey wants.

Or  

The donkey will not engage at all!

riomelodyoboetubariding2016

The donkey places humans in one of three categories in a matter of seconds:

Treat dispenser

Fair leader

or

Abuser

Did I tell you Donkeys are Smart!

IMG_7108

 

Did You Know Your Donkey Has A Personality?

The personality of your donkey can be the same as your personality or not. Makes no difference as training the donkey successfully depends on you the owner learning how to have a plan and control your emotions. Match the energy and personality that shows up on your farm. Never drill your donkey, stay ON DONKEY TIME kinda like beach time.

So You Want To Be A Farmer

Donkey Whisperer Farm ® 

img_8146img_7999img_7987img_8101The Donkey Whisperer Farm ®  is a blessing. We will thank GOD for this farm forever as our farm is GOD’s blessing. GOD bless the farmer and his/her way of life!

Farmers work hard! No vacation time, no sick days, no time off. 

  1. Every seed we plant will grow food. Food for animals and humans to consume.
  2. The land will reward us when we take the time to give back.
  3. Everything starts with the soil
  4. The farmer has a big office
  5. Farmers prepare for spring in the winter
  6. The farmer must be a planner and very careful with their budget
  7. Farmers get dirty every single day
  8. Farmers breathe fresh air every single day, rain, snow, wind or hot
  9. Farmers love to share 
  10. Farmers pray and plant

What to Consider?

  • Vision and Values: A farm is personal, a vision and values of the individuals who start the farm. Farms are dying each and every day. Small farms need another income to keep running this is a fact. Farming is very difficult to make a profit as the overhead is greater than the fiscal rewards most years.
  • Place Matters: We must do our homework to ensure the part of the world we purchase land has everything we need to grow the food source. Do your homework.
  • Planning: New farms need to have a well designed business plan that takes into consideration individual infrastructure and financial needsthe viability of marketing strategies, and the farmer’s production capacity and knowledge.
  • Education and Experience: Preparation, knowledge, and training are essential. But so is being able adapt quickly to the unexpected, to persevere when factors beyond one’s control conspire against you, and knowing how/when/what/where to expend time, energy, and resources. Prayer is very important. God is in control 100%.
  • Managing risk: It is helpful to plan careful to manage risk through diversification, financial management, and the ability to withstand a couple of bad years.
  • Wait for the funding to come before you grow your farm! We advise to grow your business in phases. Do not borrow money unless it is absolutely need. Be patient and wait.

Kidney Failure In Cats

One of our two rescue kitties (black Purcilla) manx mix died two weeks ago of kidney failure she was only eight years old. We adopted two feral kitties from PAWS in 2008.

Our Anatolian puppy sat down next to her barked once to alert me something was wrong. She went into shock and then the vet had to put her to sleep. This all happened so fast. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla you had the best life we could give you.

This kitty could not go to the vet ever. She was a feral rescue and refused to be touched or held. 

Lessons learned from rescuing feral kitties?

  1. These cats will not adapt to humans in a way to enjoy being held and loved.
  2. They will show you they appreciate your home and love.
  3. Feral kitties will learn house rules and are smart.
  4. Not all feral kitties should live outside. Our kitties lived indoors 100% of the time and were happy.

Feral:

  • A feral cat is a cat who has either never had any contact with humans or her contact with humans has diminished over time. She is fearful of people and survives on her own outdoors. A feral cat is not likely to ever become a lap cat or enjoy living indoors.
  • Kittens born to feral cats can be socialized at an early age and adopted into homes. Maybe!

Select Cat Kidney Failure

Rest in Peace Sweet Purcilla! Purcilla died three weeks ago it has taken me this long to talk about it on my blog. She was a feral rescue meaning she never really liked people. She loved us we know for sure, she loved our dogs too. Our kitties were indoor only kitties.

Select Foods We Should Never Feed Our Cat no ham products either.

Here is her sister Jasmine. She is doing good but misses her sister. She sleeps with our dogs. Did you know cats can have different dads?

I have learned cats act like donkeys. Cat’s are stoic just like the donkey and will not show sickness or pain until it is too late. Purcilla was playing the night before with her toys. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla.

Check Your Donkey, Horse or Mule For Shivering

TIS THE SEASON!

Rocket Man blanket nov 28, 2014 age 20

A blanket is like a fire exinguisher we hope we do not have to use it, be prepared when the emergency strikes. Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm ®

Please watch your donkey for signs of hypothermia! By origin donkeys are desert animals and yes, they have adapted to many climates out of survival, but when temperatures get below 20 degrees, they may suffer.

Watch for shaking, tucking of the tail, standing off alone and a decrease in activity, appetite and drinking. Should you see any of these signs immediately blanket your donkey, get him/her into a warm shelter, and call your veterinarian. Hypothermia can lead to colic and even death.

lilysnownov2014

Rocketmanage202024dectrophy6dec2014

Please check the blanket every day for sores etc., remove when the weather is back to raining and or the donkey is not needing stall rest per your vet. No blanket is 100% waterproof. We need to change them out and use common sense. If you have shelter, slow feeder with hay and warm water and your donkey is not shaking their fur works just fine and drys perfectly. Senior equines, donkeys with sickness can and do need our help while living in domestication. As always discuss this with your vet before the freezing wind and snow comes. Additionally remember trainig your donkey to wear a blanket should be done before the cold comes. 

Need help training your donkey check out our Donkey 101 & 102 Video On Demand. Select Donkey Training 102 Video On Demand with my E-book to print out.

Please check your equine for shaking as this is a warning sign that your equine is in distress even with shelter.

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

Donkey Training 101 Video On Demand – Train The Owner To Train The Donkey

Did you know the best person to train your donkey is you the owner of the Donkey?

The donkey is not a flight equine usually. The donkey is seriously a thinker. The donkey is always going to try and survive any issue that may harm him or her. This means you the owner need to show the donkey you will lead and not follow. A leader is a leader 100% of the time.

Extroverted donkeys or Jack behavior can challenge you. All animals and people can spook when scared. The horse is the flight equine. “More Go Than Whoa” Remember some horses are INTROVERTS. 

Introverted donkeys will not move their feet or lay down when scared or feeling stressed. “More Whoa Than Go” 

tubaropehalterdwf124cr

Learn the signs of stress, relaxation along with how to lead your donkey and never pick a fight with donkey as you will lose. Donkeys are deep thinkers. If you do not have a plan with a donkey the donkey will get a plan and sooner than later the donkey is leading you.

If you would like to learn how to train your donkey using resistance free methods check out our SELECT VIDEO ON DEMAND and purchase our rope halter with matching lead line. These training tools are an essential part to you learning to live in peace and harmony on your farm. Donkeys need to trust us humans first.

Next we train the donkey to follow us as a leader. Never let anyone abuse your donkey, not another human or animal. Great fences help keep your donkeys living in domestication healthy. A donkey who is in fear has a very difficult time learning just like humans.

Humans have a very difficult time learning anything new if they are stressed or in fear. When you can understand the donkey’s behavior and control your energy, emotions, voice, timing, reward system. The release is when the donkey learns.

The donkey is amazing! I did not ride my donkey or horse for three years due to a serious injury. Guess what my Mammoth donkey did not need a tune up. My horse did 🙂

Donkeys are smart not stubborn. Learning to train a donkey will change your life forever as this is a journey into self awareness. I am accepting a limited number of one-on-one students in 2017. I have been training the owner of the Donkey worldwide since 2010.

Enjoy your farm, enjoy your life.

Audio Bible Is A Gift From God

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

After surviving a life threatening motor vehicle accident I was stuck in bed and a chair for most of three years. I attended physical therapy for three years, two and three times a week. I wore my horse riding gloves to the gym when I lifted weights so I could see myself riding again. People are visual learners too! Select GOD Created A Miracle For Me to read about my journey.

melodyrio2016dwf101cr

Mind Over Pain And Sorrow:

  1. I had a choice to give up or trust GOD! 
  2. My husband of twenty-four years made the choice to keep our little farm and not give up. He is an amazing man. 
  3. My husband gave me audio of the bible to listen to when I was not strong enough to lift the bible and read it. Select Audio bible.
  4. Our marriage grew stronger not weaker during this time of pain and suffering. 
  5. I learned to not worry about the little things. Pay attention to the good things in life. The news, social media is geared to negative attention. I refused to put any negative information in my head. The pain was constant and this in itself was enough negative energy.
  6. Love Life. Share love, I learned to Blog and I gave free donkey training lessons to people who owned donkeys all over the world. I wanted to continue to use my brain and help others. This is something the bible teaches us. Stop thinking about ourselves and help others. Not easy to do in the beginning but the more you do it the better you feel.
  7. Stop feeling bad about everything I failed at. Let it go! Look forward as GOD gave us eyes in the front of our head for a reason. Learn from our past mistakes but move on!
  8. Meet people, rejoice, laugh, smile and understand that I am lucky. Many people had it much harder than me.
  9. Live my life with a grateful attitude. Surround myself with positive people and energy. 
  10. Dream! Never stop dreaming it is never to late to live your life with passion.
