We are hosting our first live student here on the farm soon. Our virtual Video vault will be up and running soon helping more donkey owners learn how to train their personal donkey themselves.
Stay tuned as the Donkey Whisperer Farm has big changes coming in 2017.
Thank you for re-blogging this post.
Sadly the donkey is still the underdog of the equine world making education difficult to find for the owner of the domesticated donkey. Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm we work hard to train the owner to train the donkey and provide educational support for the health and well-being of the donkeys domesticated environment, shelter, pasture, toys, another donkey to play with. Donkeys need another donkey to live with. Geldings enjoy living with another gelding. Jennies with another Jennie. A Jack (Stallion) should not live with another donkey. Inner breeding can start as early of six months.
Many people think the donkey is easy to keep healthy in domestication. This is not true! The donkey evolved in the desert requiring us humans to learn the strict diet of the donkey and more.
If you need help learning how to prepare your donkey for the trimmer or more we are working very hard to help you. Our Donkey Halters are a tool for you the owner to train your donkey. Please never leave any halter on your donkey while not in 100% attendance to avoid self-mutilation or death.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.
The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)
Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.
I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.
Have an awesome weekend 🙂

My dream to make a quality rope halter that fits a donkey not a horse came true last year when I started working with my wonderful contractor. I am proud to share our rope halter is hand-made from quality yacht rope to never mold.
How can I wash my halter?
Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and let dry. Yacht rope will not mold.
The Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halter is made to fit a mini, standard or Mammoth donkey, not a horse! No measuring for the mini or standard. Mammoth donkeys require you to measure as they each have a unique head size. Our halter will fit from four-months to full-grown in the mini and standard sizes.
We do not nickle and dime you, our price is one price. When you purchase from us in the United States Of America the price includes the rope halter, brass screw on snap, leather popper (training never hit your donkey). Packing, shipping and tax. Out of the USA send me an e-mail with your shipping address for a quote to ship. My e-mail is Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com or call me at 360 620-5868.
I stand 100% behind my Donkey halters. If you do not like the halter or it does not fit I will refund your money as long as you return to me in the same condition I sent it to you. Most of the photos are of our customers donkeys not our farm. All of my customers are happy with the fit and quality! I have never had any halter returned to me other than a MAMMOTH halter. This is when I learned I can not make an adjustable halter for a Mammoth donkey.
ORDER NOW as our store is stocked again. We pay Keybank to manage all credit cards, I never see your credit card ever. You will receive an automated e-mail stating your credit card was charge and what you purchased, I will receive the same. Next I will e-mail you with a Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC receipt and a tracking number to follow your halter travel to your farm. I appreciate photos after you get you halter on your donkey with the matching lead line.
If you have been following my blog since 2009 you know I am a serious gardener. Wisteria seems to take forever to mature and then it appears to be a big mess if we do not know how to manage it. One of the most important considerations before you plant this mysterious and elegant plant is to understand how to set this plant up for success. Some homes simply do not have enough space for the wisteria. I call this plant the fairy tale of gardens, the grace and elegance is beyond compare.
Make sure you have a strong arbor to support this beauty.
Plant away from any structures, i.e., home etc. As this plant will seriously become invasive if you do not learn how and when to prune, manage the plant.
Do not prune every year as you will have no flowers, just leaves.
Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC that who? We make sure your halter fits your donkey not a horse.
If you want the very best quality and a fit that is 100% guaranteed you want a Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC rope halter with matching lead line. Our lead lines are not too long for taking a walk or sending into the stall, trailer etc., If you want a longer lead line just let us know.
How Can I Order?
Select OUR STORE as the tax, packing and shipping is added into the price anywhere in the U.S.A. Outside of the U.S.A. we will have to send you a quote as the shipping and money exchange varies.
We have ten colors to choose from and no measuring is required for the mini or standard donkey.
Sure you can purchase a cheaper halter but I doubt you will like the fit, quality, yacht rope, brass screw on snap with a leather popper on the end for training. Our halter will NEVER mold ever.
How can I clean my halter?
Wash in a bucket of warm soapy water and let dry.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
