Hello all. I hope you're feeling well. This week I've taken my boys to the East Coast for half term. I love our family time and I'm grateful we have a bolt hole to escape the 'Rat race'.
I've always wanted to visit Northcote Heavy Horse centre and I had a real calling to visit this week. The weather was wet and windy but we donned our waterproofs and in our eagerness arrived before opening time. On arrival it was explained today wouldn't follow the normal plan as one of the heavies was very ill.
We loved meeting equines of all shapes and sizes; from the Shetlands to the enormous (and aptly nicknamed Rhino) Belgian Trekpaard. In the sand school was a beautiful Shire who was in considerable discomfort. I dropped the boys into the cafe and enquired if I could offer the distressed Shire, William some Reiki.
I quietly entered the indoor school and stood just in the entrance offering Reiki. Waves of energy flooded through me and William appeared to settle a little, turning his body in whatever direction was necessary. I truly felt William knew his time was limited and after a while he hobbled off so I closed the session.
I continued to send distance Reiki throughout the day and several hours later whilst out walking, a beautiful rainbow appeared above us. My soul realised Wiliam had passed over Rainbow bridge. I therefore wasn't surprised when I read on Facebook that William had been put to sleep.
It was an honour to meet such a beautiful, magnificent creature. I’m sorry it was in such sad circumstances. I can only hope the Reiki made his transition more peaceful.
Please, when you’re next in Lincolnshire (check opening times at their website below) go and visit this small sanctuary where heavies are treated (entirely by volunteers I hasten to add) with complete love and respect.
Alternatively spend some money at their on-line shop and help support this wonderful place. You can find their webpage here:-
