Well, that was quick!

Speaking of cranky mares!!!! I got a text from cranky mare's mum last night saying she was STILL getting stuck into the seaweed meal and she allowed them to saddle her up and ride her!!! 2 days ago mum said her daughter was attacked by the mare as she tried to put the saddle on!

I was hoping it would be a quick difference but said to allow a week or so! 2 days of seaweed meal, Evening Primrose Oil and getting her OFF epsom salts.... so far so good!

My old cripple Joe had a wee bit of dinner last night and has eaten this morning and moved too, so hopefully it was just another purge of his system flushing some more crap out... he does seem to time these fasting sessions with a new additive to his food, the first one Himalayan Crystal Salt, this one after we added Devils Claw to see if we can get him off the Metacam. (Yep he really is an old cripple!)

He is also very much a mummy's boy and I know he'll tough it out for as long as he possibly can. He has been my guardian angel for 11 yrs now (he is now 12 1/2) and I'm just so glad my son has had a chance to know him, in fact it was DoDo (Joe Joe) who taught him his newest word, "toe-nails" hehehe

Well I can hear a lot of laughing on the childs part with the dogs which means he'll be harassing them, so I'd better save the long suffering creatures!

Wow, time flies!

Another birthday been and gone, no more pressies till Christmas :(

On a plus we got a day's worth of good solid rain earlier in the week so my grass is set for autumn! Had friends camping in the backyard for over a week, was lovely to see them and the dogs LOVED the attention, unfortunately my old boy Joe has now stopped moving and eating, although he did this 7 months ago for 3 days too so we're not whipping him off to the vets just yet. Lots of healing going his way. Heading up to Auckland next week, that's come around fast and by the time I get home Mac will have seen the chiropracter and be ready for some work!

Just been speaking to a lady with a mare who has gotten extremely cranky... vet did bloods and they showed everything "within normal range", a hair analysis since has shown several deficiencies which is interesting, which is more interesting is that no one bothered considering hormones! Anyway the mare has been offered seaweed meal and has got stuck into it as soon as it was put in front of her so that's a good sign. The evening primrose oil should helpfully smooth some of those hormones out, and hopefully the cranky lady will be back to normal soon! Am looking forward to hearing to how she responds!

oh so true!!!! and applies to my dust bunnies too!

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
If you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place.
You will find dog hair on the floor,
they will alert you're at the door.
they may request a little pat,
a simple 'no' will settle that.
It gripes me when I hear you say
'just how is it you live this way?
they smell, they shed, they're in the way'..
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say..
They love me more than anyone,
my voice is like the rising sun,
they merely have to hear me say
'C'mon , time to go and play'
then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say 'no time for you',
they're always there, to GO and DO.
and if I'm sad? They're by my side
and if I'm mad? they circle wide
and if I laugh, they laugh with me
they understand, they always see.
so once again, I say to you
come visit me, but know this too..
My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place..

Heat Wave!

Summer is finally here in all it's glory, it's stinking hot out there! Still waiting for the chiro to visit so the boys are getting let off easy particularly in the heat, and now I've heard the chiro is visiting while I'm in Auckland.... oh poor hubby the horse hater is going to have to take him in! Will have to arrange a horsey friend to go with him poor boy, more for the horses sake than hubby's HAHAHA.

Other than that life is quiet here in the sunny valley, but work is busy, so I'd better get back to it.

Remember as Kahlil Gibran said... One may not reach the dawn save by the path of the night.

Stay safe.

Live and Learn...

Well I got Mac an EMRT (bowen) session yesterday with a friend who is learning it. Having had one session done briefly on a dog many years ago I always thought it was a type of "massage", but having since seen my friend working with just stage 1 (hands on in certain positions) and seen the results afterwards I finally realised it was a form of energy healing! Very fascinating and the way Mac responded to his first session 2 weeks ago was great. Lines appeared all over his body the next day (looked like someone had raked through his coat with sharp fingernails) and MAN was he grumpy! 2 days later however his coat was super soft and very shiny. The lines apparently appear because the lymphatic system is stimulated and they release a lot of toxins.

His 2nd session yesterday after I had a lesson started off as good as the first but by the end of it he decided he'd had enough and wouldn't let her do the last move.

I'm more impressed with Bowen having seen this results just after a simple hands on in position rather than if I'd seen them after a full proper "session".

Very interesting to know the underlying method they are using though since any type of energy work is an interest, heck that's what communication is! ;-)

and us Kiwi's get to welcome it in first! We truly are in God's Own aren't we?! I'm already thinking ahead to what 2008 may hold for me. My wee 2-legged one will be turning 2, Mac will be cemented into Novice Dressage, will a year be enough to climb to elementary???? ooooooh up to me I guess isn't it!

We're patiently awaiting the chiropractors visit to town again this month as the silly bugger has a sore hip again and I would love to start having our jumping lessons again! He's had 2 yrs off (thanks Marcus LOL) and we both enjoyed it so much! (the jumping not the time off!)

I'm jumping into a new thing, an applied science, called Kebzeh and it may even involve a trip to Canada so will be saving madly just in case!

Am heading home to Auckland for a week on 31st January, so nana can see the wee fella and I don't have to pay for him till he turns 2 so had to make the most of it!

The dogs are ticking along, after losing my lovely great dane this year at 5 1/2 unexpectedly to cancer, and have acquired a new 5mth old goat as her family will be flitting back and forwards to Oz.

Well I have 1/2 the year planned already so it'll be interesting to see what else comes with it!

I hope you all have a great 2008. I hope you get what you need and that what you need is what you want!
