Welcoming Hayley

What a happy day!

At 9:10am on this cool, misty morning, a gooseneck trailer pulled up to a small picturesque farm in Harvard, and out stepped dear Hayley, a 22-year-old Quarter Horse mare who has thrived under the gentle auspices of the dedicated volunteer staff at Bay State Equine Rescue (BSER) since they picked her out of an auction (and probable death) more than two years ago.

Just five short weeks ago, Hayley seemed to be on death's door. She had long suffered from heaves, and now that condition was compounded by the onset of heart failure. Her prognosis was extremely grim.

But Hayley had plenty of life left yet, as she let us know, both through her tremendous spirit, and the messages I had received during telepathic conversations with her. This dignified former PMU mare began to respond to the treatment prescribed by veterinarian Dr. Mark LeDoux, and she slowly, steadily rebounded.
Virtually everyone who meets Hayley falls in love with her, and I was definitely smitten. And today, thanks to the help of my good friend and colleague, Gwen Cook, and the support of Susan Sheridan of Bay State Equine Rescue, I adopted Hayley, who is shown here exploring her new paddock under the watchful eye of Gwen's gallant Arab gelding, "Back Bey."

Perhaps the most remarkable thing was that Hayley took the move from her previous quarters in Oakham completely in stride, much to the amazement of all in attendance. I had communicated with her the night before, explaining that she would be leaving in the morning to go to a wonderful new home, and showing her mental pictures of the barn and her new equine companions. I had pointedly stressed how much she was loved and how well cared for she would be. To anyone who saw how nonchalantly she simply looked around and immediately began grazing, it was apparent that she had completely understood. Thanks to our telepathic chat, the new barn was already familiar territory. Within minutes, she let us know she was home.

Karin Orsi's beloved cat, Otis (pictured on the right) has been missing for about a month now, from their home in Leicester, MA.

I have communicated with Otis on several occasions, and Karin has also enlisted the assistance of several well-known Animal Communicators, in an effort to ascertain Otis's whereabouts, and whether he is still in his body.

We believe that Otis is still in physical form, but have not been able to locate him, nor has he returned home, in spite of our repeated efforts to persuade him to do so, and to determine where he might be found.

We have recently decided to ask for assistance from Otis's sister, Allie (pictured on the left), who was killed in a car accident in August, and from Dweezle, who was with Otis when he disappeared from Karin's yard.

Allie let us know that Otis was not with her, but that she was watching him. Dweezle shed some light on the circumstances of Otis's disappearance, confirming some information that we had received in previous communications.

Talking with the missing animal's siblings or friends is another potentially productive way of getting more information about the lost animal's circumstances and location.

With great joy, I welcome you to the first entry of my blog, Animal Communication News, a feature designed to complement my website, Animal Translations.

I'll make this forum a clearinghouse for current information here about upcoming courses on Animal Communication, Healing Touch for Animals, TTouch, and other healing modalities, as well as news of local horse shows, dog shows, agility trials, obedience classes, adoption opportunities, and especially, fundraising events for nonprofit Rescues and Shelters.

I will also post descriptions and photos for any "Lost Animal" cases on which I'm currently working, in the hope that this information may somehow lead to the successful reunion of the animals with their people.

I am currently in the process of completing Carol Gurney's four-part comprehensive HeartTalk course for professional Animal Communicators, with the final session to be held during the first week of December, 2006.

With this in mind, I have decided not to charge for my Animal Communication services through the balance of this year, and welcome all inquiries for consultations. Lost animals are always given first priority, and I will continue to provide communications at no charge to nonprofit Animal Rescue organizations or Humane Societies for the foreseeable future.
