Harley, a black and white painted Tennessee Walking Horse mare, came to me as a gift back in late 2008. I quickly determined that I wasn’t skilled enough to ride her, but being that she was a mare, I could breed her and get another mule! So I went looking for a jack to breed her to…well I found him. He was white with two black spots and named Eeyore! Perfect I thought and so I loaded Harley up and took her to get bred. Well I got a bad gut feeling one morning when I awoke that something was wrong with Harley. So I went and picked the mare up. She seemed fine, just covered in mud up to her knees and a bit thin. So I put her in the trailer and back home we went. I hosed her down when we got home to find that she had a cut on her right front foot and it was deep! So we had the veterinarian to come out and take a look at her. He said she was cut all the way into her coffin bone…and for those of you horse people out there you know that is not good. Coffin bone injuries equal dig a grave. We had the vet to flush it out, we then wrapped it to keep it clean. By now the injury was causing the mare pain, and she didn’t want to bear weight on her right front. We were getting concerned that it may cause her to founder in the left front. The vet suggested we keep her stalled and continue to flush it out and wrap it up to keep debris out of her foot. He left 14 days of antibiotics, but told us the outlook was poor because we couldn’t continue with antibiotics for long or it could cause the mare to abort. Well that’s never what any horse owner wants to hear, but I felt God had other ideas. Why would He give me a mare only to take her away months later? Granted she was tough on herself, in a matter of a few months she had gotten herself upside down in a cement water tank and managed to cut herself all up. She was in shock when I found her after that incident. She had proven to me that she was a survivor. So I called some friends of mine and we prayed over Harley. By the end of the prayer I felt that God and I could really help Harley with the Reiki and Essential Oils. Harley was not about to let us touch her for long so I did the Reiki work distantly. In fact she would stand quietly in her stall until I would come to treat her then she would start stomping her right foot. Proof she felt the energy I was directing her way! Some nights as I would work on her you could see the yellow/green pus coming up and out of the wound…yes defying gravity. Soon Harley was able to put weight on both front feet again and easily maneuver around in her stall. Wasn’t long she was trotting and cantering around again. As the wound healed mysteriously the scar tissue formed in the shape of an “M.” Amazing! God is an awesome healer!
Update: Harley foaled April 6, 2010! I had said many prayers that she would have a healthy filly, with a good head, ear, and eye. I did tell God that He could paint her any color he liked! So I woke up one morning to see a beautiful chestnut filly, “Spirit,” trotting right beside her mother! How great is our God?!?!?
Elliott is a white with brown spots Jack Russell/Beagle mix that was labeled aggressive at an animal control facility. He was so full of life in the kennel that Tricia decided to rescue him as she knew Stoney her Jack Russell/Corgi mix would train him well. She hadn't had him long when he was ran over by a full sized truck by a former room mate. She immediately called us requesting psychic surgery before attempting to move him from the road. There were 5 tire tracks of blood on the pavement and he had been ran over in his head and neck area. What are the odds Jack Russell versus full sized truck? As she went to pick Elliott up she heard an audible snap, thinking the worst she loaded him in her truck and took him to the vet. The vet tech came out and stated that he didn't look well, and she thought she could see brain matter coming from his nostrils. The x-ray showed NO broken bones any where in his precious little body. The snap we believe was the repair of broken bones. He smelled of death for days, he would whine requesting his time on the BioMat daily, some times several times a day. At first he had a very difficult time eating, so he was on soft food. He drinks water differently, and if you look closely at his face you can tell it is out of alignment. He still blows a lot of snot on his off days, but infections are few and far between. We believe there was some residual damage done to the sinus cavity. He runs and plays and does his dog works daily, but his favorite thing is helping with the healing work. His most notable healing moment doing downward dog on a clients heart chakra, wagging his tail as if praying a blessing over the client. He is truly a testimony to God's miraculous healing work!
