I’ve experienced another profound evening at Peaceful Acres Horses. The horses never let you down.
The High Point pasture high on a hill was windy and chilly so we all wore blankets. I had taken mine with me. The big red fleece had been a fixture in my moms home for years. After our incredible session with Nanci Beyerl, we were guided to distill our challenges down to its simplest form so the horses could understand. We were then released to the herd to receive answers. All of us got our answers. Hector came running up to me as I crossed the fence. He just stood in front of me, motionless. He started sniffing and pushing the red blanket I had around me. Then he bit it and pulled it off me and started walking. I held on and he kept pulling on it. He pulled the whole blanket to the ground and started stomping on it.
After he was done, I went to get my blanket back. Zippy came over. He is the “leader of the People Whisperers”and the most intuitive and also the most gentle. He put his nose to my ear again like he did last week like he was telling me something. He leaned in on me. Having the full weight of a 1000 lb (and a couple of feet taller than you) animal leaning on you is a tad scary and tends to throw you off balance. I stood my ground with the blanket balled up in my hands. Zippy pulled the blanket from me, threw it on the ground and shoved it away with his nose and hooves. I went to get it and he shoved me away. He then stood between me and the blanket motionless. I got the message. It took two horses and Andie for me to get it. My family has had a tough week with personal issues. I left the blanket in the pasture. But I left the pasture letting go of a lot more than the blanket.
