We lost Sid today. I had to make a dreadful decision this afternoon to let him go in peace. Rick is sobbing and completely distraught. I am numb. Please send us strength. RIP Sid, you are loved so very much. oxoxox

Knowing your path

Reiki class went very well today, I love teaching this stuff and my students are always amazing. It was a Reiki Level 2 class full of a great deal of theory, quizzes, and learning galore. My students and I part exhilarated, exhausted, and yearning for more Reiki! Next up, was a Reiki client coming for a session, I equally love giving these sessions. I know I was meant to be on this path of holistic healing and education. I was able to take a moment, for an hour or so, to simply rest and re-energize (with the dogs of course). My house was bussing and I was buzzing with energy and excitement by the end of the day. During the class I was electrified with energy and during the session, my hands were on fire (the client even noted the extreme heat and energy), visualizations were strong, and I felt, very strongly my client's emotional release.  It is incredibly satisfying work and I know I was born to do this, it just took time to find that out.

No matter what it is in life, find your path, you will know when you do, and stay with it and enjoy it!  I have a wonderful and rewarding professional career and a wonderful, rewarding life at home, life is good....life is great!

 Join me sometime in a class or session! http://naturalhorseloverfarm.com/

We have a winner!

The winner of today's Natural Horse Lover Farm $50 gift certificate raffle at the Wellness Fair was Jennifer Brailsford, congratulations!! She may use it towards any service or event offered by our farm (excluding outside instructor events).

Wellness Fair!

I was invited to a local wellness fair and am here, looking forward to spreading the message of holistic education and healing for people and animals.  If you are local, please stop by!

Here is my table, not the greatest but I have ideas for next time.  I was going to bring crystals, essential oils, my color therapy stuff, etc. but didn't - I now regret that decision. (I really need my library staff to help, lol, you should see what they do.)

Equine FIrst Aid Class Was a Hit!

Whiskey with two bandaged legs and an eye bandage!  He was such a good sport.

Today, we hosted an Equine First Aid Class taught by Lisa Lalonde from Animal Educational Services.  The class was packed with students, information, and hands on learning!  The students asked all kinds of wonderful questions and the instructor had more information and amazing stories that we could have ever hoped for. The horses, all three of them, did great as we practiced bandaging, checking vitals, and listened to more lecture information.

Lola with two leg bandages and a chest bandage.  She was amazing during this entire event.

Fosse getting his first leg wrapped.  During class he certainly challenged some of the more timid students (because he loves to push buttons).  He still did great. And, with a grade 5 heart murmur, he was an excellent example of an abnormal heart.
If you missed it, we will be hosting another event this fall.  CLICK HERE to view some of the photos from the event.
