Here comes a new year! 

Hello, it’s nice to meet you. My name is Melody Johnson, Donkey Trainer, and a coach and teacher for humans who own and care for donkeys.  I teach worldwide via Donkey 101 & 102 video on demand. Donkeys are a bit different from a horse as well the donkey is super intelligent so much that the donkey usually has the owner trained before the human has the donkey trained.  If you have never been around a donkey let me share my favorite quote to help you understand,“Horses dream of being trained the way a donkey demands to be trained” Melody Johnson. If you would like to see what I do for a living come on over to the Donkey Whisperer Farm ® store. 2020 is the year of sitting down and re-thinking how to keep our families and business healthy. How to adapt to our new way of life.   For most of us, the pandemic created a dramatic change or shift in thinking and behavior.  Jesus brings peace. “Submit to God and be at peace with him;  in this way, prosperity will come to you.” JOB 22:21 NIV  

Are you a city person or a farm person?

Living on a farm seems to be a simpler way of life in so many ways living with covid our farm is truly a blessing.   For us, the Covid was not much different than our normal life. You see, we have so much to do on the farm, each day the donkeys and horses and doggies need to be fed and cared for. Last spring my husband Scott planted the seed (hay) in the field during the beginning of the pandemic. While city folks were trying to find ways to adapt we were just living our natural way of life.  The sad part was we could not have visitors on the farm, we look forward to having our most fragile world return to normal.
If you are having a hard time finding anything positive in 2020 let’s think outside the box. It’s easy to get caught up in what’s wrong in our lives and miss what’s positive or going well. If you have lost a loved one in 2020, I am deeply sorry for your pain I pray GOD gives you peace. I truly understand suffering and pain and my heart breaks for your pain. Please know this too shall pass.  Jesus will bring peace “Start each day in prayer, meditating on the good things in your life.”  Thank Jesus for something good in your life every day, God loves all of his children deeply.
God bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody & Scott Johnson GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
Melody Johnson, Trainer/Owner Donkey Whisperer Farm ®

Is It Real Or Fake?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I have lived in the Pacific Northwest my entire life. When my husband saw this tree he said “This is the one”, no watering, no mess. Well we moved over to the other side and I am here to say this is it! I love this fake tree. Easy to setup and no tree died.

Aging is a process for sure, one I was not ready to embrace as we have always cut our own beautiful fresh tree. We are excited to share the fake tree is amazing. Looks real and takes minutes to setup.

Do you have a fake tree or a fresh tree?

Merry Christmas

SEATTLE — An extremely rare tornado that touched down west of Seattle was the strongest to hit Washington state since 1986, the National Weather Service said Wednesday.

A Weather Service storm team surveyed the damage just south of Port Orchard, Washington, and rated the twister an Ef2 on the Enhanced Fujita scale with top wind speeds of up to 130 mph (210 kph). The scale rates an Ef2 as “significant.”

GOD Brings People Into Our Life For A Purpose – Pray For People In Your Life

God knows what he is doing. Did you ever stop and think how some people are just placed in our life instantly? How some people are burned out of our life instantly? Its true. God knows what we need before we know what we need. God has a plan and this plan is much bigger than we could ever understand. GOD is the alpha omega the beginning and end. God has counted every hair on our head. God is in control of everything. Nothing happens by mistake. When we understand how GOD works with the universe and his children everything becomes peaceful. God in Jesus Christ name is amazing.

Donkey 102 VIDEO TRAINING SERIES – STICK AND STRING PICKING UP THE FEET

 Introducing Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series

We are proud to announce our new Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series now available to all students who have purchased and practiced our Donkey 101 Online Training Course. Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series is for intermediate students and takes an in-depth look into donkey personality, herd mentality, the rescued and traumatized donkey, how to pick up the front and back feet and various other problem solving techniques.

Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series also launches our new Donkey Whisperer Farm Training Tool a high quality, ergonomically designed fiberglass stick and string for desensitizing and working intimately with your donkey. It is an essential tool for training your donkey to pick up his/her front and back feet and for addressing behavioral issues such as, pushing, crowding, bullying and refusing to come and lead. The DWF Training Tool Stick and String is mandatory for Donkey 102 and is the key to being a Fair Leader and building a foundation of trust and respect with your donkey.

Each Donkey 102 E-training Video Series includes our Donkey Whisperer Farm Training Tool Stick and String. If you have a Miniature Donkey please purchase the course with the 3ft DWF Training Tool Stick and String. If you have a Standard/Mammoth Donkey please purchase the course with the 4ft DWF Training Tool Stick and String. Our DWF Training Tool Stick and String comes in Royal Blue and Deep Purple. Each donkey 102 E-Training Video Series also includes a PDF with step by step bullet points for you to refer to as you view the training videos.

Both Donkey 101 and Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series teaches YOU to train your donkey. A third party trainer cannot help your donkey. Only you can train your donkey because you are the one who is caring for your donkey, sharing life with your donkey and building a strong foundation of trust and respect with your donkey. A third party trainer may gain the respect of your donkey, but he/she comes and goes. As the owner and caretaker, you don’t come and go. You are your donkey’s polestar, so it is you that must gain your donkey’s respect, it is you that must become your donkey’s Fair Leader.

We hope you will take the next step in building a partnership with your donkey. Our vision at the Donkey Whisperer Farm is to teach you, the owner/caretaker, to train your donkey and to provide the tools and education to better the life of your donkey. A large percentage of donkeys that end up at shelters, auctions and slaughter houses have been abandoned because they were difficult to handle or could not be trained.
Our vision is that EVERY donkey find its forever home. Our prayer is that your donkey stays with you forever.

Once purchased, each participant will receive a Welcome E-mail within 24 hours of your purchase. Your DWF Training Tool Stick and String will arrive seperately in the mail. The e-mail will include a link to the Donkey 102 PDF and a link to the password protected Donkey 102 E-Training Video Series. Please add info@donkeywhisperer.com to your address book to ensure your Welcome E-mail does not go to spam.

Discovering Your Purpose

Seems life is all about stepping out. Falling down. Getting back up. Stepping out. Waiting. Falling down. Stepping out. We must never give up on our purpose in this world. God has created each person with a unique personality, gift, life experience and dream. Faith means we see something before it happens.

Philippians 4:13 ESV / 362 helpful votes

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Train the owner to train the donkey using resistance free methods as donkeys are smart not stubborn.

My purpose now is to share joy, love, education, faith, and most of all forgiveness. If we never forgive the person who betrayed us we will live a bitter and self-destructive life. Forgive but do not let this person abuse you ever again and move forward free to enjoy this great big thing called life.

You have a purpose. Trust GOD in Jesus Christ name and move towards your purpose. Nothing will ever satisfy you like your purpose.

Enjoy you life-like there is no tomorrow. Tomorrow is unknown.

GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TWO AND FOUR-LEGGED!
