Rescue

A friend of mine recently adopted three horses from a rescue ranch in northern San Diego County…two mares (sisters) and a gelding.  It is clear their past includes tremendous trauma…not just the plight of being “rescued” but most likely mistreatment at the hands of previous humans.  Bless my friend for giving them a loving home and a fresh start.

What was most remarkable to me was the look in the eyes of her gelding “Harry Potter” who the veterinarian confirmed had probably been beaten repeatedly.  Behind that unmistakeable, almost dull look of contained fear was the tremendous depth of his kindness.

Underneath Harry’s painful apprehension and desperate hesitation is the sweetest, most hopeful horse I’ve ever met. It moved me deeply to see that in spite of being terrified about having a halter put on him, worried about every move we made around him and still deeply affected by everything from his past, he has somehow managed to hold onto his kindness.

    Hi Tiff. I think Harry touches something so deep within us…that eagerness to trust and that willingness to instantly forgive. He is a profound teacher and I am so very grateful to know him. (and you!)
