Today I didn’t have much time to spend in sharing space with my herd but…Lady and Rosie walked off within the first five minutes to the other side of the pasture. I wasn’t even going to go today, but, when I looked over at the pasture from my back yard, Amber was looking directly at me, as if she knew I was gonna walk to the edge of my house at precisely that moment and the intent “look” communicated that she was waiting for me to go “be” with her. I was a bit startled at first….as most humans are when we have “intuitional” experiences. There was no way she could have even known I was in the back yard much less about to step to the corner of my house. Great example of equine intuition and human bond. That was all it took, I knew I needed to go, even it was only for five minutes. Though my other two mares left quickly today once I got settled in the pasture, my loyal friend Amber stayed with me, confirming what I had felt from my back yard. She just wanted to be with me. It was close to dinner time so the energy was a bit off for her and because I was not in a meditative state but a hurried state, mine was off too. Still, it meant a lot to me that she remained with me as opposed to walking away with the other herd members. While there were a few affectionate moments, today was more playful, repeatedly doing things with me repeatedly telling her no, like trying to chew on my shoes. But, she stayed. Leaving to go graze with the herd was not even a thought in her head. She chose to remain with me and not eat. A huge feat for Amber since that big girl is all about eating! She did however have a few quiet moments with me just standing and closing her eyes, as horses do with one another. I was the “herd” she chose to be with. That was the message. Needless to say, she made me feel very special as she always does. I adore that horse.
