On a quiet evening at Blue Heron Stables, I have the pleasure of walking out on to my deck to overlook the calmness, the beauty and the comfort that is being shown to me in front of my very own eyes, the meshing of two herds, 3 weeks ago that has now quite obviously become one.
It seems when I look back on my 10 years of living life as a farm gal, I have been in the process of experimentation and the horses have graciously allowed me to learn through mistakes. They have been patient with my inexperience and have allowed me to revel in my right choices and learn from those other choices. I have gained so much clarity by surrounding myself with incredible teachers, but truly it is the guidance of the horses and the listening to my heart that has given me the gift to stand out here this evening and thank the universe for expanding my dreams to this point.
There are so many nuances happening within the 15 member herd, that I am most grateful to be a witness to. It truly is observing everyday, a huge family with little children running around, teenagers trying to find their way into the thick of the family, and the wisdom and knowledge being given out everyday by the elders of the herd.
Unlike a wild herd , these horses come with people attached to them and that truly is the greatest gift of all because not only do I have a relationship with each and every one of the horses that live here, I also have a special connection with each and everyone of their companions. To each and everyone of you, your trust and faith in the care of your horses and the friendships that you have given to me and my husband, are never taken for granted and most certainly I wake up every morning with the deepest gratitude for the experiences of love and laughter and tears.
"Life is good"
