How can just hanging out with horses, DOING nothing be so enjoyable? Join us for this real-time video with the herd, just before sunset. FEEL what horse-time is like, sink into the sounds, nature, the rain and just BE with the herd. Makah has a pretty cool demo for us. Will coyote show him/herself? And mother nature is out in full glory.
For those of you who missed it, Coyote did show up for our Livestream on January 25th! And stayed for quite a while. Considering these animals are continually shot at by humans, it’s remarkable s/he was willing to leave herself exposed for so long during the livestream.
I actually like the fact that Coyote did not show himself in this video – despite my very focused ask. Because I think it’s important to show animals saying No. And for us humans to not only receive, but hold space for refusal.
So often we take the animal’s compliance as ‘proof’ of our ability to communicate – because our default of measuring success in relationship with animals is how well they listen to us! Our default is to train animals and then be so pleased with them (and ourselves) when they are ‘smart’ enough to do what we say. Imagine applying that same standard or expectation to your friend, or your grandma!
I’m sure Coyote had very good reason(s) for not appearing on this day. I trust Coyote and his/her judgment. It’s all good.
