March 25th Reiki
I started off with Watson, he did a few of his usual positions… the interesting this was that Hoss started to notice. I’ve mentioned in the past that Hoss is nervous around me so I keep my distance, I was always hoping that through working with Watson he would be more open towards me. Hoss came up to the fence to watch it all, apparently he wasn’t so keen on me looking at him so I could only check him out at the corner of my eye. There were time that Watson would close his eyes and drop his head and at these times Hoss would lick, chew and eventually he dropped his head too!!! He was a bit to nervous about it so he wouldn’t stay in that position as long as Watson. Watson, did a lot of licking and chewing… I think he was ready for a session. Watson disconnected and made it clear he wanted his hay that was behind me. Hoss was still watching us so SLOWLY I approached the fence that connected the 2 stalls and just stood there. I was mentally talking to him telling him what a beautiful boy he was, how handsome he was… so I guess he heard me and walked over to me. He interacted with me, he let me pet him, I could feel that he was calm… THAT was a HUGE step for Hoss!!!
Off to Bella and Brydee. Brydee was already outside, once I got Bella outside and closed the door to her inside stall I hopped the fence into Brydee stall (so Bella could have her space) and stood in the corner so I could be close to Bella . I couldn’t believe it Bella just walked up beside me and closed her eyes. Brydee walked up beside me and tried to put his head through the fence to bug Bella… I took step forward to physically block him, he took the hint and closed his eyes too. It was magical the 3 of us huddled together! Brydee was right up against me I thought man I hope he doesn’t start leaning into me he is going to squish me into the fence. I think he picked up on my thought as shortly after moved, he stood facing me about 3 feet away. Bella did a lot of chewing and licking, she took a little break and then came right back. Eventually Brydee gave a really big stretch and I knew we were done. Wow I thought the horses really missed me over the past 3 weeks, then I realized with all the snow I probably haven’t worked with these 2 since Jan. What ever the time was they were eager for their sessions
