"A horse is like a mirror, and it's reflecting what and who you are."

This is just a little diary of my horse life. I teach natural horsemanship and dressage. I am currently working on getting back to L4 Parelli after a car accident and surgery.

I suffered from a fear of failure, as things had not gone according to planned after my time off from my injuries. It had been an paralyzing disability (fear) but my healing is coming along nicely, and I hope to pass my level 4 before the end of 2011.

I don't know where I am going, but I am NOT lost!

I am now reviewing dvd's and books, and blogging my reviews. The link on the left in the categories (DVD Clinician Reviews)will take you straight to it. You will find links to the websites of all dvd clinicians I review and they are located on the left hand side bottom of page of the page. None of the clinicians or trainers I am reviewing, sponsor, endorse or authorize this site. For more info about them please click on thier link.

I hope you enjoy!

Mind over matter.....fecal matter!

Good news about my mom.  She is doing better....finally.  This last surgery worked!!!!  Saddly for my poor mother, the whole incident was not caused by what they originally thought.....her gall bladder that they removed during her first surgery.  Nor the second thing they thought.......her 10yo hernia with intestines caught in it, that they shoved back in a sewed up during the second surgery.  Oh no....it was a a gall stone the size of two golf balls lodged in her small intestine close to her stomach.  So my poor mother was throwing up poop for 3 weeks.  Disgusting as that is, I can't even imagine how my mom felt about the 'matter'.  Small pun intended.

So I went to visit my mom today.  She has been in the hopital for nearly a month now and had 3 surgeries.  We were talking about how excited we were that everything was back to going the direction god intended it to....you know....the poop!  My mom, bless her heart, has the dryest sense of humor.  I never get her jokes.  So we were sitting there, and she got all serious as we talked about the ordeal, when she shared a secret with me.  She said, "ya know I thought I was going crazy the last few days because the poop didn't taste bad to me any more".  I sat there, staring at her not knowing if she was serious or joking, and then her eyes welled up with tears, and I knew she was serious, though I was already laughing.  Here I thought I finally got one of her lame jokes, and she was DEAD serious.  So I told her that maybe that was her brains way of re-wiring her taste buds, so that the torture wasn't so bad.  Either that or she WAS crazy, and I would have the doctor admit her to a funny farm, rather than let her come home.  Of course she did not get my sense of humor, and laid there staring blankly at me.  "MOM....I'm joking"............."oh....ok" she quietly whispered then burst out in laughter.  I guess we chock this one up to "mind over fecal matter" and hope we never have to go thru this again!  She is back to eating real food, something she hasn't had for a month, and wils be going to a rehab facility before being released to being tortured by me and my obviously great sense of humor....maybe her mind can convince her I am funny........HA HA HA......
