I had an AMAZING day at the barn:)
I started off with Scout and as soon as I walked into his stall and stood still he walked right up to me with his right shoulder pressing into me, I really didn’t get a chance to center or ground myself. As soon as I started to touch him he yawned at least 10 or 12 times he just kept yawning and then blew out and a head shake and this all happened in less then 5 minutes! He took a bit of a break to check out what has happening at the barn next door. Then he made his way back to me and then I started to work on his front legs and again he dropped his head quickly to see what I’m doing. I started working on his upper right leg closer to his body and he gave out a big yawn. So that was a really productive session!
Off to Watson, the poor guy has the runs again and I could tell it is really wearing him down. I know he wasn’t feeling very well and it took me some time to help him feel balanced and grounded again. While I was there I kept hearing his odd sound like a faucet dripping coming from his throat and mouth area.
Based on the success last week by moving Sasha and Bella to the lower stalls, the barn staff had already moved them to Hoss and Maggie’s stall which was perfect as they had a bit of time to settle in before I showed up. Sasha was such a COMPLETELY different horse!!! She was really calm and interacted with me A LOT. When I first arrive she stretched her head to me to sniff me and then throughout the session she would walk away and explore a bit of the stall and come back to me. She was very up close and personal with me, all of a sudden her lips were gently all over my face, that took trust on my part as I like my nose and chin the way they are! I didn’t move I felt that she was really calm so I knew I wasn’t going to get accidentally hurt. Then she thoroughly sniffed me down, again lips moving all over me my shoulder, pants, boots then all over my back I could feel her gently mouthing my neck and hair. To me I felt a lot was achieved because no matter where she went she always came back and stood beside me. She is so different down here compared to the barn where it seems she is always on guard.
