Hormones balanced, upped hay intake and track system going back in this weekend - thanks Prancer for telling Jo what you needed! Prancer was acting a bit out of character so Jo wanted to check in and see what she could do to help. I'm lucky enough to chat with Prancer a few times a year and she's a horse of few words. She does share how her body feels so we can get a good idea of what's going on.
Animals often show me what physically needs attention using a holographic image of their body - really handy since I can see organs, fascia, ligaments, muscles etc. The order in which they draw attention to certain body parts is their order of importance. Prancer first showed that her hair was standing on edge - prickly, then her gut - acid, gassy and then her feet - slightly inflamed.
The warm, wet weather in New Zealand is firing up the potassium and nutrition density in the grass causing physical, hormonal and emotional changes in horses. Happens every spring but the timing is more driven by the weather than the calendar. Some horses are sensitive to these seasonal fluctuations, some are not.
She was aware she was more reactive and once she'd finished the body tour she then shared, "I'm sorry, I am feeling a bit tetchy". You might think this is a strange word for a horse, but was perfectly understood by her carer, who is a super lovely English woman. I find it's important to share the actual words offered in communication sessions, not my alternatives - after all the information is for their person, not for me.
I got the impression she was relieved to get her message across as she was uncharacteristically smoochy when she was finished. This was shown by her projecting an image into my mind's eye of her reaching out to gently touch my cheek and her overall energetic state was more open and engaged in connecting. Something she has been a little reluctant to do in the past.
