“That horse is dangerous … she tried to kick my head off … she’s crazy …. don’t push her, they did something to her mind … her mother hated humans, too”

These are all things I’ve been told about the horse, Luna. But look in her eye, once you get past the stunning white eyelashes. There is a gentle soul in there – she’s just ill-adapted to Life with humans. She’s been so wronged for so long, but she cannot escape. So she survives the best her prey-animal instincts will allow.

She is starting to learn a different way. Slowly, with much patience and compassion guiding the way, she is learning that SOME humans can be trusted.

One human saw not the dangerous hooves, or the pinned back ears, but instead the expressive eyes. And just maybe saw behind those eyes the fear and sadness of a betrayed spirit. That human took the time to stand still within those eyes, and heard a soul asking for kindness and understanding. Thus, it was offered.
