Before and After

Harry Potter…Before

I wrote several months ago about my friend Tiffany who rescued 3 horses, one of whom is Harry Potter.  Harry was… put it mildly, extremely nervous….his flight-response in high gear all the time.  Just approaching him would send him into a melt-down of fear.  Clearly, he had been terribly mistreated and was distrustful of humans.

I went to visit him recently and watch him being worked in a round pen.  It was delightful to see this once frightened horse enjoying himself in the company of people….showing off his obvious delight in being able to trot and canter, mane and tail flying.

Harry is still easily startled and worries about moving through confined spaces.

Harry Potter….After

But in the few months he has been with Tiffany, he has blossomed….his true personality finally allowed to emerge.  One of the sweetest, kindest horses I’ve every met, he is now showing confidence and joy.

Harry’s life is full, his heart renewed, his faith in humans beginning to return.

    Dar Mary, Thank you for your lightness! Harry is an example of what happens when we trust joy to bring us along. He is an inspiration.
