Mieventer that's a crazy story! How cool that you were able to see for yourself that "the girl" was real!
Nelson has an issue of loading. Don't get me wrong, he is a very good boy and will load smoothly, but everytime we get him up to a trailer, we have to spend the time to ensure him that he's coming back.
The reason being, is because he has been bought and sold so many times, and he's been taken away from his horse friends and his "home" - the trailer is associated with that. The Communicator told me that whenever he has to go into a trailer, he thinks that he is never going to see his friends again, or his "home" again.
It's actually quite sad.
CJ - I wish you lived closer! I'd have to do sessions on Nelson! He has arthritus in his hock and due to the arthritus, he has lower back pain. I have him chiro'd on a regular basis, and he has his own equine massage therapist, but I'd love to see what Rikki could do for him.
