Horses have been on this earth for almost 55 million years! There are more than 400 breeds of horse. They live in herds run by one stallion. Horses live on every continent except Antarctica. The maximum top speed for a horse is 55 mph.
When speaking with another species, I always ask to speak with a representative from the collective (who is living in heaven) as well as a living individual. I do this because, many times, they each have very different messages.
The collective representative is a beautiful brown work horse. This is a lovely brown horse with a black mane.
We are happy to be here today, to speak with all. Horse has been here for eons to help all mankind. It has been mostly our privilege to work alongside you. We love mankind. We love all who appreciate our beauty and our strength.
Our special message to man has been one of cooperation. Horse lovers worldwide understand that to have a good relationship with Horse means mutual respect and growing companionship. As humans have understood this, we have both worked together to accomplish great things.
When man has not understood this and has abused us, it has rarely worked out. This, in a nutshell, is why it is so important to man to listen. By listening to others, respect and companionship begin. This many times blossoms into love, whether man is in agreement with another or not. Horse has long tried to teach man how to work as a team. Fortunately, man listens a great deal!
As a team, both horse and man changed the world! Long before the Industrial Revolution, many men’s lives relied on their horse. Times have greatly changed but people have not. They would still do well to heed to their inner heart and to listen to all, from their fellow man to all animals. There is still so much to learn as we live together. Horse will always be here to teach you.
It is our privilege to share this earth with you and with so many. We are very happy here. It is a wondrous planet on which to live and our hearts can all be yours if you will take the time to work with us.
I thanked Horse for having come today. Horse asked me if I was disappointed that they were only a regular horse (and not some showy stallion). I told them that I truly wasn’t. I felt it was so appropriate that Horse’s Collective Representative would have been a work horse. I am very aware of Horse’s contribution to our society. We have been truly blessed by their presence.
Oh, my! What a privilege for me as I watched two horses come loping into my office!!! The first is a mustang from the islands of Assateague. I used to read of these feral horses when I was a child and I have always been fascinated by them! These mustangs are feral horses that roam the seashores of Assateague Island and Chincoteague Island, off the coasts of Virginia and Maryland. Both islands are now protected by the National Park Service and our Fish & Wildlife Service.
The second horse was much smaller and very cobby. It is a Przewalski's horse (pronounced shuh-VAL-skee or just P-horse). Mongolians call this horse Takhi (Spirit, worthy of worship). I have recently only learned of these horses in the past several years. They are the only truly wild horse on the planet and are the closest horse to what God originally created, much smaller than the horses we normally see. The P-horse has never been tamed. They were almost extinct and only found very rarely in four countries until private institutions took it upon themselves to develop a breeding program. While these horses are still endangered, they are slowly being reintroduced to their home countries. This horse is from The Wilds which is a partner with the Columbus Zoo in Ohio. Each of the horses will speak separately here.
I am so happy to be here today and so thrilled you are so fascinated by my particular species! I live a very charmed life here in The Wilds where I am allowed to run freely on many many acres. We are protected here and greatly loved and respected for who we are. Our keepers have made it their life’s work to care for us so we want for absolutely nothing.
Of course, I would rather be free in Russia at this time but I am also very aware of my species’ plight. Before I came here, as Horse, I had my choice and this is the species I chose. It is my honor to help to reestablish us until we may be set free again in our natural homeland. I do not expect that to happen in this lifetime. I am totally prepared to live this lifetime as a sacrifice to enable the recovery of my species. It is my honor. It is also made much easier because my habitat is such a nice one.
Hello! I see from your mind that you have long been fascinated by us on our island, Lacey. You know our history, how we literally came to be from shipwrecks many years ago. We lead a charmed life as well. We are revered here. People allow us to roam free and have not tamed us. Horse is at its best here on our island. We eat, we play, we swim. It’s a wonderful life and one that we greatly appreciate.
I was not aware that books had been written about us. How wonderful that small children can learn about us and grow up to appreciate us! Perhaps my forefathers knew this but it is news to me. I think that’s wonderful.
Many people come here, to our island, to observe us. We feel their love for us and also their consternation as we are known to raid their camping sites! A horse will be a horse after all! We feel that our presence here is a great lesson to many. I am aware that most of my species work for man. We work for no one here. We live for ourselves. It is good for man to see us as we once were on all the earth before we were tamed. I am proud and honored to be free, to live with my herd, unfettered by any human’s desires. I love being free!
With that, it was clear that both horses were done. What an honor to meet these two, each living life their way, on their terms.
I have spoken with horses before when their owners had asked for a reading but I had never spoken to wild horses like this. What a privilege!
Each time I speak with a wild animal, I am humbled, truly humbled, by their dignity and grace. We are so blessed to share this planet with them. Please help me to help them to spread their messages.
Should you be interested, I have spoken with many wild animals and insects. A comprehensive index with links to individual blog posts is here.
