has gone way beyond many experts thoughts and imagination. Many experts in the Equine world (including Vets) thought, she would never learn to trust again and should just be bulleted or released (but how any one could have got near her at the time to bullet her or release her was way beyond our nightmares of nightmares). She has had Expert Show jumpers, Hunters, Alternative practitioners and many heart filled lovely people visiting her over time. Many of them said, we wouldn't know where to start, or we wouldn't have the time but more importantly we wouldn't have the patience. Is it not the case that it is the latter that seems to be out of most people's equation now, the speed of our every day lives has made us become greedy, impatient and intolerant to take time to understand. We all seem to be running against the clock with our fast cars, planes, bikes and motorbikes.
Yet given time, many, like Lauder Lass and the other animals and humans we have had the privilage of working with have all completely reaped the rewards of this 'patience, and giving each their voice and choice and understanding' but it's an understanding of who they are and not an understanding for what we want them to be or not to be that has won hands down each time, when other methods and traditional methods of categorising and shoving them from pillar to post just has not worked and indeed never will work, especially for such sensitive individuals as the ones we are asked to work with.
Creating this book with Lauder Lass was truly inspiring because of the input from all her visitors. There were artists, who never realised they were artists, there were poets who never realised they were poets, then there were the extremely talented artists, Bill Haley being one of them and of course last but not least the incredibly talented poets. It's the age Group that also touched our heart strings, the youngest Artist was 5 and the youngest poet 6. The oldest artist was 82 and the oldest poet being 72.
Here is a link to Lauder Lass's update - enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed spending every second of the hours bringing her on, in a way she understood and understands . . she is indeed a true inspiration to many and through her many other animals have been understood in a totally different light.
