Location: Kentucky Horseshoeing School
Due to my telepathic communication experiences with my horse Sweetie, I was very in-tune with his needs. He was very clear about what he needed, and informed me that his feet must be trimmed in a particular way to keep him structurally sound. Unfortunately for me, there was not a single farrier (a craftsman that trims and shoes horses’ hooves) in the area who would trim Sweetie’s feet the precise way that Sweetie wanted them to be trimmed. So, I decided go to Kentucky and take a horseshoeing course so that I could trim his feet myself.
The weekend before I left for Kentucky, I was interviewed on the Howard Stern Radio Show. Howard did his usual ridicule when I told him about ability to communicate with animals.
He asked, “Do German Shepherds speak German?”
Robin Quivers, his co-host, also jumped on that bandwagon. However, I had just spoken to her horse because I had been communicating with other horses at the barn where her horse happened to be living. Robin had left money for me so that I would communicate with her horse. I made sure to point this fact out to her during the show.
I immediately headed for Kentucky after the show. During the intake interview at the school, one of the questions asked was about my current occupation. The director of the school and head instructor, Mitch Taylor, chuckled when he learned that I talked to animals. I assured him that I was there solely to learn how to trim hooves, and that making him a believer in animal communication was not my intention. We proceeded with the training.
On one particular day during the course, a worker came up to Mitch claiming that he and three other men could not control a frightened mare enough to get the last two shoes on her feet. He asked Mitch if his horse whisperer could come and help. Mitch agreed to allow me to try. I understood from the men that this was the mare’s first horseshoeing experience. I approached the mare with caution. It was clear that she was terrified and uncertain of what was happening to her.
I first did some energy work with her soul, which calmed her some. I explained to her exactly what the men were doing, and that her person wanted her to wear the shoes in order to protect her feet. I explained how long it would take for the remaining two shoes. I made it clear to her that she would not be injured or hurt in any way. Almost immediately she lifted her foot into my hand. I signaled to the men that she was now ready for them to complete their work.
I remained close by to support her with my thoughts and physical presence. The four shoes were on her feet. While she was not thrilled about the idea of shoes, she was no longer afraid. All of the workers and Mitch himself were amazed at the difference a little good communication could make.
One of the men exclaimed, “By God that was amazing! And by the way, were you on Howard Stern last week?”
These men witnessed firsthand what they heard on the Howard Stern Show. I am sure that Howard Stern did not realize that he would be helping a horse in Kentucky while doing his radio interview in New York.
I gained a newfound respect for the farriers of the world. It is a difficult skill that requires physical stamina, and a great deal of practice.
