The Story of Zorra

I walked into the dining room at the oceanfront resort in Akumal, Mexico and my brother’s girlfriend rushed over, gave me a big hug and said, “Jini, I found your horse!”

“Whaaaat???”

Justine proceeded to tell me about a friend of hers in New Jersey who bred Andalusians, and all about her horse Zorra, who would be perfect for me.

My daughter’s name is Zara – so that’s the first thing that struck me.

Here’s the second thing that struck me. This is a watercolor painting I did about 5 years prior:

And here’s a picture Sue sent me of Zorra:

So even though I live in White Rock, Canada and certainly didn’t need to buy and ship a horse cross-continent, when I returned home, I phoned Zorra’s owner Sue to chat with her. We hit it off right away and our approach to caring for horses physically, emotionally and spiritually was right in sync. I suggested we both connect with Zorra and see what she had to say. So we hung up the phone. Sue went out to the pasture, and I went up to my room.

I settled down comfortably and began breathing deeply and connecting to Source. After a while, I sent my energy out towards Zorra and she came into my space. She walked right towards me, put her head against my chest and said to me, “I deserve you. And you deserve me. And we have waited so long for each other.”

When Sue and I emailed each other later, Sue reported that she had received the strongest communication she’d ever received from an animal (she’d taken a course in Animal Communication) and Zorra told her she was meant to be with me and she thanked Sue for letting her go.

Nine months of waiting and planning later, Zorra finally arrived:

I am so fortunate, and the Universe is a blessed place to be.

Jini Patel Thompson is a natural health writer and Freedomite. She began riding at age 2 in Kenya, and got her first horse at age 8 in Alberta, and so continues a life-long journey and love affair with these amazing creatures.

    This is very inspiring story – I love that the horse could decide what she wants. That is really helpfull, because I’m struggling with idea of finding a new home (and new Human) for one of my horses. It has crossed my mind few times, many people mentioned this as well (because he is very well breed, challenging horse, who propably should be with a person who is not affraid to ride him the way he could show his full potential – I would love to, but don’t have guts to do it). In the same time, I love him, I know that right now he is in perfect conditions – outside whole the time, with unlimitted acces to grass and hay and space, with the company of other horses (including his mom). He can live just beying a horse – the question is if he needs more? A new human to ride him? Does he wants to change his life? If he wants the change, I want to help him, I will let him go though it’s hard to think that I’m not his perfect human :/

      Also Zuza to open to the other possibility that he does not need/want to be ridden or worked and is perfectly happy with you and his mom and his herd. I would set the intention like Zorra’s owner did – ONLY if his soulmate person comes along will you sell him and HE has to tell you it’s what he wants. Then you also make sure that his quality of life will not go down and if the person ever can’t keep him as well as you do, that you let him live at your place again to make sure he is taken care at least as well as he is now, if not better. I once brought a horse that had been on pasture with a herd to a boarding facility where she had the biggest stall and dry paddock, then daily turnout to a field and she was MISERABLE. I swore I would never do that to a horse again. A horse kept locked up in a cage (stall) would have been thrilled with that facility! But to a horse on open pasture it was a prison.

    Yes, you are right! I will tell him that he can be with me as long as he wants, and only IF he would like to be with other human (his soulmate) – then I will let him go. Phew… you can’t imagine how better I feel now, when I look at this in that way 😀 Much love, thank you!
