February 25th Reiki
When I arrived Jo was still out in the fields dropping hay for the horses so I had a few minutes to check in with everyone in barn. To my surprise Cruise was taking an interest in me, he choose me over his food and just really calmed right down into the moment with me. Since the barn horses still don’t have access to their outside stalls I thought it best to just let Brydee and Bella go directly out to the fields. I can understand they want out asap after being in their stalls for over 12 hours…. I am there to help them not the other way around.
Jo had given Watson some hay to eat and was still in his stall so I thought I would just work on him. Hoss was in the next stall, he was given some hay to keep him happy while I was with Watson. Well it took Watson a really long time to open up and get into it but once he started he wouldn’t let me leave, I was with him for an hour. This is the horse that doesn’t want to be touched, he does his poses and positions me at certain angles. Once he opened up I could feel he had a lot of shoulder tension, I was hoping he would do some blowing out or yawning to move the energy but he only gave a deep sign, one yawn and lots of chewing. Eventually I thought he was wrapping it up so I thought about leaving, nope he walked right up to me so his back end was right beside me. I took that as an invitation to touch him, he allowed it so that’s what he obviously wanted. From time to time through out his poses he would drop his head with his eyes half closed. At one point he walked right up to me so that this head was just a few inched from my face and he just relaxed into that space. Interestingly enough Hoss was taking notice as to what Watson and I were doing and walk over to the joining their stall and rested for a while.
