Latest on Sir

Hi Sir's Friends

I did away with my usual opening  "Sir's Minions" after my wife suggested that I look up the definition. So I did and after reading the definition I realized that some may take offense to the label though I meant no harm.

So,  I went to the barn after work last Thursday I believe. Ther traffic was heavier than usual, I wanted to get there before 6 but the traffic caused me to arrive at 6:30.
Doctor Wen was already there and I could see Sir on the cross ties as I got out of my car.
I could tell by Sir's posture that he was not happy. His head was down, ears back and front legs slightly spread.

I walked into the barn and was greeted by Dr. Wen, Laurel, and Tommy. Beth gave me a quick hello and wave from the other end of the barn where she was busy grooming her horse Lakota,
It was right about then that Sir realized that I was standing in front of him.
He raised his head and his ears went up and he began nudging me with his nose. The usual greeting that I get. He rubbed his head on my chest and placed his chin on my shoulder. It seemed like he was saying "I am so glad that you are here!" LOL (That's my story and I am sticking to it)

Dr. Wen finished his examination and told us that he felt the loss of appetite, weight loss, bad coat, etc. was a result of kidney disease that was brought on from the infection that Sir had a few weeks ago. (I think I wrote about that) He prescribed some of his Chinese Herbal medication and said that he felt the kidney problem was reversable.
We should see an improvement in roughly 2-3 weeks and he will remain on the meds for several months.
Laurel and I breathe a collective sigh of relief.
Once we get this healed we can concentrate on his other issues.

I took him off the cross ties and walked him to the back towards his paddock. I let him graze a while and talked to him as usual. When I placed him in his paddock he turned and walked up to the gate where I stood. I had my chin resting on my arm. He gently placed his head to my forehead and stared into my eyes. He had never done that before. It was a wonderful emotional feeling. I kept talking to him and he stayed there. I felt like he was saying "Don't ever leave me. I thought that you had left me"
Please don't send the men in the white coats for me yet. :<)
But is was as real as if someoine was whispering it in my ear.

I reassured him that I was not going anywhere, that I would not walk away from him....EVER!

He helped me, now I will help him!

Again...thanks for reading and following my Blog posts.
Please comment......

Until next time
I Remain......

Just stuff and this coming weekend

Hi Sir's Minions!

I spent some time with Sir last weekend. I had him with me and out grazing for almost two hours. He was pretty much done with it by the end LOL.
I was standing talking with someone and he was behind me just resting his big head on my shoulder as if he was listening to the conversation. I love when he does that!.
I will be hanging with him this coming weekend for sure. Both days.

One of our volunteers left for college this past Saturday. She was and is a hard worker and we will surely miss her! Erika and her Mom Elizabeth always worked hard and did whatever was asked of them and more! I would tease Erika and tell her that Uncle Frank was there for her.
I'm going to miss that kid...young lady!

This weekend we have a fund raiser event on Sunday 9/11. It will be hosted by Louise Abitbol.
Her description is below. Space is limited:

"A journey towards self awareness in the presence of the herd. Horses can help us commit to our spiritual development and motivate us towards seeing them, as well as ourselves without barriers or resistance which blocks our conscious awareness. "....the truest teaching is like a bird flying across the sky; it leaves no tracks that can be followed, yet the presence cannot be denied." Gangaji The horses presence cannot be denied. Following the gathering all are invited to share food and drink. Price of the event $50.00"

I am looking forward to this. The Heard in the Herd meditation last year was great and this will be better I am sure.

So I will leave you with that for now and will post again soon!

Until then

I remain
