When I was notified by my neighbor that my mare was down and not looking good in the front pasture. I cried out WHY?
I heard a voice. It was Dena's voice, " I'm making room for another horse."
What? Noooooooo I cried.
I won't go into what all transpired over the two days. I was grateful she went pretty fast and was at home with us. She had a stroke and with in a day she was gone. I was thinking I don't want to sit around grieving her death. I want this to be different. Didn't know what it would be. I began noticing the gifts that came from her transition. To this day I'm still receiving new awareness's about life and death.
I sat in the chair pretty much stunned. I raised Dena`, she was my pride and joy. My husband ( who is a certified Farrier) said the sweetest thing. You know I've known thousands of horses. Dena` was the best.
My other mare Mia was running around in the pasture looking for Dena`. I talked to her often and told her we would work through this together. She's not alone. I also told Dena` that if she wanted to hang around (spirit form) or even come back I would welcome her with open arms and heart!
I knew i needed to find another horse and fast to keep Mia company. I looked on the internet surprised at myself for even looking so soon after Dena's passing. Nothing felt right. My girlfriend called and offered one of her horses. I declined again didn't feel right. She offered another one. I said thank-you but no I'll wait. Later looking online again, I heard a voice outside of my head ask.
" What do you really want?"
I blurted out - I'd love a Black Hanoverian foal out of Lortzing Dena's sire! I surprised myself with my answer and then let it go not telling anyone including my hubby. The next day I went over to a friend's to help with things, she was the one that offered the possible pasture mates for Mia. I told her that i would like to help her with taking care of her kids. She was going through a divorce and could really use some extra help. She then said well I have proposition for you. Take Lexus and have her bred to Lortzing.
I then told her what I blurted out the night before. What's so amazing is Lexus is a purebred registered Trakehner and is Black/brown. Lortzing is Black. I had there thought of a Trakehner crossed with a Hanoverian before. The universe gave me glimpse the spring before Dena died. I was at a Dressage riding clinic and on day 2 got talking more with the riders. The one gal had a striking black gelding. Guess what he was? Yup you guessed it Trakehner/Hanoverian. In my opinion he got the best of both worlds.
There's more to the story and the gifts I've received that I have been inspired to write a book telling the tale, and how all along the way I use different manifesting tools to attract what I desired.
A sneak preview- Lexus was at the Veterinary clinic for just a day, and my girlfriend was available that morning to take Lexus to be bred. This indeed was a miracle as she works alot and just happened to catch her in heat. The attending Veterinarian said she was ready Now to be bred. WOW! The help on hand said that was the fastest on record for settling a mare. LOL Oh and did I tell you that Lortzing had passed in 2011. I promise I'll get the whole story down soon.
Happy Trails, and to my dear mare La Undena`who continues to teach me up in Heaven, I love you!
So here we are fast forward and Lexus is about 5 1/2 months pregnant carrying a Lortzing foal. I'm Blessed beyond measure. :)
