Happy Birthday Brantley!

**APPARENTLY THIS NEVER POSTED!**
Brantley's Birthday was March 31st..

Brantley & Jeanette
Brantley had a special visit this weekend from our friend Jeanette (the Farrier's wife). We have been friends for a long time and she was mentor for me while I worked at the feed store. Over the last few years she has been mastering her energy work, Reiki, and intuitive reading skills.

Not sure how anyone feels about any of that stuff but... I love it. She came out to visit LB after he got hurt and about 30 minutes with her and Jeff the Farrier working on him, he was toe-touching the next day. Obviously the infection had already set in and we were headed towards the inevitable, but after they were done I had this immediate feeling that he felt some sort of relief being able to finally put some weight on that leg.

Anyway! Back to the B-man. It was pretty amazing watching Jeanette work. I've told her a little bit of the history I know of Brantley but nothing too intimate seeing as I've been trying to leave it in the past. Honestly, I don't know the whole story and why does it matter now. There are some things I have heard though such as his accident with the barb-wired fence. As she went to put her hands over his chest and shoulder area, she asked him to basically show her his trauma... After breathing for a few moments that felt like a lifetime, she backed away and literally had the strong emotional need to cry. "Did he witness something awful. Like his Dam or pasture mate, someone he looks up to, get hurt and even pass away?" - The story I heard was that when he was caught in the fence, he was caught with another horse and the other horse ended up dying.

Do I know this for sure? No... But for her to pick that up... 
Crazy because I don't tell many if any people that story.

After we chatted a bit, she was ready to start again, working some energy to alleviate the trauma and the emotions he felt about it. She continued to work around him and push the bad juju out and replace it with good energy. 

It was really amazing to watch and it's more complicated than above but I should've made note cards. I could feel it and I could see it working though.

First ride 2015
Who knows if it worked or not but let me tell you, I finally had my first ride of 2015. We've been working hard playing ground games and long-lining (his favorite) and finally after some prep work I said F@#$ it, I'm getting on. 

His normal nervous first ride jitters were gone. He put his head down and just wanted to walk off. I said okay, go on, and next thing you know we were loping around the indoor. 

BTW...

HAPPY 9TH BIRTHDAY BRANTLEY!
