Pasture paradise.

Today the horses got new places to explore. Horses do not belong in stalls, the reason why domesticated horses show so many behavioural issues is simply because they cannot be horse anymore. And sadly people do not understand enough about the true nature of horses to see that their horses are not exposing normal behaviour. Because so many horses have mental problems people often see that as the norm.

The field includes a natural waterway. Most times dry ditch, I love sitting there to meditate.

 

While I created the new field I had a vision of people coming to visit the herd this year. 💜 Meditation with horses 💜 The ditch for example is a super peaceful place to sit. And it is easy to quiet your mind in the presence of the herd. Looking out in all directions. Like a gateway to expand your awareness all the way out into the universe and beyond. While mother earth holds you into her lap.  Simply be, feel the wind, the sun, and hear the birds while silent well behaving horses resonate a deep sense of inner piece to connect with.

Waiting for me to let them into the new pasture.

Pretty awesome feeling I got when I drove with the quad while the horses cantered to the new place I fenced in.

Watch the video here.

In front: Onix. Left to right: Dáma, Ramon, Fanny and Csíki. Are waiting to meet you.

I will dive into the calm programme from source medicine. To explore how we can use the resonances in our relationship with our horses. Experimenting to find even better connection with myself and the horses. Csíki has an old trauma of shortage of food. Her drive for food is extremely high, she eats three times more than another horse in the same period of time. This drive caused her to be aggressive and overly allert, though today she is much kinder and relaxed she still eats too much. And I myself have a deep-rooted epigenetic fear I wish to resolve. I have worked a lot on myself and trough my fears after an accident, but there are moments of awareness where I can feel my dna holds still this instinctual emotion I was born with. This is why I will start the programme together with Csíki. Because this emotions come from the same survival reptilian part of our brain. We are all connected, I always feel the influence of my own emotions in the horses, and visa versa, it is a miracle how they are able to make the invisible visible.

Also we are curious how resonances could help horses with some chronic disease and detoxing.

Let the horse be with you!

    Yes, agreed that stabling makes horses neurotic and is unnatural. But. We had Thoroughbreds in Maine where it dropped to a windchill of 40 degrees below zero. The hotbloods just don’t adapt to that kind of cold. Though they could come and go as they wanted during the day.

    As to DNA and memories, after working on bodies for over 20 years, I can attest to the fact that bodies hold memories. It’s the nature of instinct. I saw it in horses, in humans, and I see it in dogs as well.

    Lovely field! Makes me want to come lie down with the horses. Our old rescue Quarter Horse Pete would let us lie down with him in the Hawaiian sunshine when he was alive. Which was amazing, as he had been abused before we got him.

      I can imagine 40 below zero is cold indeed. . We have milder climate, minus 20 was the coldest this winter. And there is a walk in shed available. My senior arab racehorse sometimes needs a blanket, when it rains and she sheds her hair. Funny fact, big horses have shorter hair. Their body mass is bigger and thus their heating system, which is the trunk filled with hay. The fermenting process of the hay generates the heat they need. And they can shut down the blood flow on some of the outher blood vessels to the legs for example Horses on a high grain diet will suffer from cold because grain is digested differently. Everybody knows about dogs that when they grow up they have this socialisation phases which are important to mentally and emotionally develope. Lot of horses get no chance to stay in a group with their mom and herd. Comercially bred horses are taken away from their mothers way too young and move to a youngsters group, and are being sold etc. They never build a stabile social life what in my eyes is so imortant to develop. My youngsters still form their characters and they are almost three now. And they form real close friendships, if you take that all away from a horse. And nearly all horses live like that, people get used to seeing horses behaving distorted. Generally higher stress levels cause physical problems as well, see the picture. Horses are difficult to read when it comes to pain and other discomfort. As prey animal they are programmed to not show weaknes. So often when a horse brakes down the problem has allready become chronic. Let alone that people cannot read sadness in the eyes of their horses. There is more education needed about this majestic creatures. Do you today still keep horses? Hapy Pete he came and live with you in Hawai.

        We don’t keep horses anymore – moved to a 1/2 acre yard in a neighborhood. We have horse neighbors too, we’re in the country, but I miss having our own to care for. Years ago, I bought the Thoroughbred who had been bred to a Belgian stud to get a nice dressage horse out of her. We raised her foal until my marriage broke up, so sad. Had to let him go at 2 yrs, though the woman took them both – that was the agreement. I’m sure she left them together in pasture, as well.

        I agree horses don’t show it easily, hard to read their threshhold for pain. Even our dogs have likely suffered at the end more than they needed to, then looking back, I think, gosh, we should have just put them down sooner. But I think all sentient creatures want to live, and live as long as they are able. Makes it hard to make that call, when they don’t die in their sleep. When Pete was at his end, we called the vet and his crew to come. The vet said if we’d waited one more day, he’d have fallen down. So sad. And he assured us we called at just the right time. Pete followed us down the field to his resting place, eating bits of carrot the whole way, and we were crying and even the vet was crying! It was sad but also holy in a way. And he went down so easy, knees just buckled. He was loved right until the very end and we still tear up – as I’m doing now – thinking of him. This should take you to my post about him: https://belasbrightideas.wordpress.com/2015/07/21/our-pete
        Aloha, and thanks xoxo
