What’s Behind The Barn Door

Farm life is the best life! I love our farm, and all of the animals but let me be clear this is not the life for all humans. Our farm animals require twenty-four-seven care, seven days a week no exception.

Our farm is growing low sugar & protein hay and boy does this require some work. My husband Scott is a seriously physically fit middle-aged man, he is constantly lifting heavy items for the farm, moving hand lines, building fences, lifting heavy bales of hay. Did I tell you farming is hard work?

Farms Require Work!

* Farmers work full-time seven days a week, twelve moths out of the year.

*Farmers must have another full-time job to keep the farm alive.

*Farmers do not take vacations very often.

*Farmers must have passion for the farm and the animals.

*Farmers use their personal resources as its difficult to pay someone to run the farm.

*Farmers work in hot, cold, wet, windy, mudy and freezing weather all hours of the day.

*Farmers pray! Farmers pray for sunshine, rain, wind, and for favor to keep the farm running.

*Farms with animals require the farmer to provide food, water, shelter, fences, vet care, and basic husbandry of boring choirs such as picking up poop and composting at least 2 times a day. Picking poop out of the hooves at least three times a week for donkeys, mules and horses, no hoof, no equine.

*Farms require the owner to work full-time with very few breaks or trips away from the farm.

If you can agree to all of the issues above, hurry and get your farm up and running! Congratulations you are indeed a rare human, you are a hard worker and you are a farmer.

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

Steam Hay For A Healthier Horse, Mule and Donkey

Did you know?

  • Even the best quality hay can be full of dirt, dust, mold, and bacteria.
  • Read all about Hay Steamers here.

The Donkey Whisperer Farm ® has two equine suffering from allergies. Our palomino horse Miss Lily and Rio our Mammoth donkey. Allergies are very real for humans and animals. For our equine, this can cause breathing issues and running eyes, itching so bad the face bleeds on the nose and around the eyes, coughing, and hives. Remember to always ask your vet for support with allergies. Our Mammoth donkey takes the dog pill Apquel and this helps 100% of his allergies, we give this to him at night as it makes him drowsy.

The sad part is a hay steamer is expensive. Perhaps one-day hay steamers will be a bit more reasonably priced for all equine to enjoy the benefits.

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

Growing Low Sugar Protein Hay

Plowing The Hay Field

We purchased our farm (raw land) in 2013 for our small business the Donkey Whisperer Farm ®.  Yesterday we hit a milestone “Plowing The Hay Field” the first step to growing premium low sugar/protein hay for our donkeys and horses. We will never have weeds or alfalfa in this hay ever again.  In the spring of 2020 we will plant orchard seeds.  God willing we will have some beautiful healthy hay for our donkeys and horses. 

The next time you buy a bale or more of hay I hope you take a moment to thank the farmer that worked really hard to provide you with your hay. Growing and harvesting hay is really hard work and expensive. No wonder hay cost so much in the Pacific Northwest. Premium hay will always cost more as it takes so much more time and effort to produce.

Hay or straw cannot be looked at and guessed to determine sugar or protein we must test it. The color means nothing, the fact it is straw means nothing.  Send hay samples to Equine Analytical. 

Donkeys evolved from the desert making them seriously easy keepers. Donkeys cannot eat high sugar/protein hay or straw without getting obese, sick and finally dying. Our hay will test in at 10% or lower in sugar/protein, thank you Jesus.

A few photos of my husband Scott working really hard for three days to get this field plowed. Seems the field has not been plowed in at least thirty years or longer. 

We look forward to sharing our beautiful hay in the spring and summer of 2020. 

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

Thinking Of Donkeys as Donkeys Come In Two’s

Do you ever find yourself thinking about donkeys? We have had donkeys in our life for fifteen years now and well it’s hard to remember life without a horse and a couple of donkeys, they are indeed part of our family.   Why Donkeys? Perhaps GOD understood before I did the importance of donkeys in our life as our donkeys are part of our family now.  I have always been a human that likes to learn, digs for information, steps out of the box to try new things and I am naturally creative.   Thank you, Jesus!  The human brain is indeed one of the most important organs GOD gave us.
We are proud to make and sell the best quality and fit donkey rope halters. Each donkey halter is made in the U.S.A. Donkey soft yacht rope halter, lead lines with a brass snap, leather end. Check us out at our store Select Our Store.   Our Mini and Standard size rope halter will fit from age 4 months to full-grown. Custom/special orders  You will order the halter and let us know you want to measure the head. We will build you a perfect fitting donkey halter made to last a lifetime. Please send questions to our e-mail at melody@donkeywhisperer.com we are happy to help you.
PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ANY HALTER ON YOUR DONKEY, HORSE OR MULE WHILE NOT IN ATTENDANCE TO AVOID SELF-MUTILATION OR DEATH.
Why are donkeys so special?   Donkeys have a cross on their back, this is special. Well, they are usually not always but usually more relaxed than the horse and well kinda like a black lab they just want to be loved on, they want to eat, they want to snuggle with their human.  The donkey loves to play tug with their four-legged donkey buddy.  Donkeys love to jump up and grab the neck of their donkey buddy.  Donkeys are donkeys!
Donkeys never forget anything they must be treated with a fair and respectful plan. Never abuse your donkey. Rehabilitation of an abused donkey can takes many, many years and some of these donkeys can become violent towards people they associate with the past abuse. I.e., a smell, man or woman (former abuser), truck, sounds, cigarette. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is real in animals just like people. Donkeys can see in color.
What Do Donkeys Need To Stay Healthy? 1. Clean water fresh water, diet, low sugar and low protein  hay  Never feed donkeys alfalfa hay ever. Hay must be tested to come in no higher than 10% Sugar to keep the exotic desert equine healthy. Exercise is key.  2. TamingDonkeys need their hooves picked out daily and their feet trimmed at least every 7 weeks 3.  Donkeys need the vet to come and see them at least once a year 4.  Donkeys need their teeth checked at least once a year 5.  Donkeys need us, humans, to check for sores, lice, or a limp – Watch your donkey learn how they move so you can catch problems quickly 6.  Donkeys need clean fresh water every day and in the winter warm water, Donkeys need to lose salt in a dry place. A salt lick will do but will not be as effective to prevent colic. 7. Donkeys need their human to be on time with meals – My donkeys hardly ever bray as they can depend on us to bring their meals, they do not need to remind us ever
8. It is a myth to believe all donkeys bray all day long they don’t bray unless they are calling out to a donkey or they are upset about meals or something else like a predator coming into their pasture. Jacks bray more. Very few jacks (stallion horse world) are worthy of reproduction. Owning a Jack is not for the beginner donkey owner or even the novice. Owning a Jack takes having people to help you manage your farm correctly it is not for the beginner.
9. Donkeys do not enjoy a bath, donkeys seem to not enjoy the water even on the warmest weather.  Our donkeys get one bath a year and I hand wash their face just like my horse, never spray a donkey with a hose in the face 10.  Donkeys ears can be broken and not stand up so be careful when touching them 11.  Donkeys can grow lot’s of thick donkey fur for the winter Rio our Mammoth donkey age 9 months with my hubby Scott. 12.  Donkeys are looking for a great human leader who will take the time it takes, donkeys are visual learners 13. Donkeys can hear things way sooner than the horse 14. Pick up the poop every day and compost. Do not drag across your pasture until the poop has composted and killed parasites for at least one year. 15. Last but final tip about donkeys; never ever drill a donkey, less is more and remember Donkeys never forget anything – Be careful what and how you train your donkey 🙂 SELECT E-TRAINING DONKEY 101 VIDEO ON DEMAND.  GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Rio our MAMMOTH DONKEY stands 16’2 hands tall with Melody. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Here Comes The Rain

Do you find the rain to be relaxing?

Growing up and living all of my life in western Washington the rain has always been a source of beauty and inspiration. Now that we live in Sequim, WA the rain is a relief as we own a farm. During farming season we are so busy growing hay, cutting hay, keeping the pastures maintained.

Here comes the rain means it is time to rest on the Donkey Whisperer Farm as even the animals rest in their stalls waiting for the rain to stop. The Olympic Mountains are getting new snow. Snow we will use for irrigation next summer.

Water is the source of life for all living things:

What do you think of the rain?

Apples and Pears

Dear Friends,

Apple Season has arrived! As great as they may be for humans this is not great for the domesticated Donkey, Mule or Horse. In fact this may cause DEATH from Colic and/or a huge amount of stress, tears, vet cost or even burying the beloved equine (Donkey, horse or mule).

Never feed grass clippings or bread to your horse, donkey or mule. PLEASE NEVER FEED ANOTHER ANY ANIMAL THAT IS NOT YOUR ANIMAL. Some animals have a form of insulin resistance, most must have a slow change of diet or they can founder, hoof rots out abscess or colic or worse die. 

Select grass clipping

Donkeys, Horses and Mules get Sick, belly aches and gas from eating too many apples! Eating too much human food can increase their risk for colic.

This is one of the most important posts I can write. I will do my best to write it in a way to educate and not offend people as the equine (donkey, horse or mule) need us humans to learn. In fact their lives depend on it!

When you drive by a farm please do not make your hot rod scare the equine as they can and do run through a fence in fear. Not to mention the vet bill for falling down and possibly breaking a leg. Please do not throw bread, apples, pears, watermelon, grass clippings, beer bottles or garbage over the fence at the farm animals. 

Horses, donkeys and mules will die of colic if not treated quickly! Bread will get wrapped in their intestine and they can die.

IMG_4844

IMG_20150506_094435

Please never stop and feed any equine (animal) anything without the permission of the owner.

Throwing apples or any food over the fence of an equestrian farm can cause death or a huge vet bill for the owners not to mention emotional stress, tears.

IMG_4811

We have video surveillance on the Donkey Whisperer Farm and signs stating DO NOT FEED THE HORSES AND DONKEYS and still I have to tell people not to feed my equine. This is a huge problem and one I think most people who do not own equine just do not understand. You think you are sharing love, in fact you could kill the sweet Donkey, Horse or Mule living near you.

Thank you for sharing and caring.
