Feather joined us as a companion for Rastafarian Bob because we anticipated the death of Breeze, the mare who’d buddied with him for several years.
When Feather debarked from her trailer, she looked around, chose for herself an area comfortably closed in by outbuildings and trees on three sides, laid back her ears and drove out the other two from her space.
Feather was able to hang on to dominance for a couple of months until, finally, Rastafarian Bob decided this was against nature. Despite the loving care while with Redwoods Rescue, she kept me on probation for six months or so just to make sure I was trustworthy.
Breeze lived another few years, then Rasty Bob and Feather became, in the nature of horses, inseparable.
Feather died on July 17, 2010. We’re grateful that we were part of her life and that I could be with her as she passed.

was adopted into this loving family, click HERE.

Of course, this sounds ridiculous to most modern humans, and is usually dismissed out of hand without thinking about it. After all, the mind does not want to lose its position of authority it acquired when the heart was dethroned. The mind will say that if the heart is in charge, everyone will just do what they feel, and no one will work, no one will aspire to improve the lot of man; everyone will just party, eat like gluttons, consume drink and drugs, and engage in wanton sex. course this is not true.
- In order to understand what your horse is feeling you have to feel with your heart.
- To know whether something you are thinking of doing is right or wrong, you have to consult your heart.
