Anna, I just watched the videos of the last days of the foal handling course. The stories of each foals journey, as well as the students, touched my heart deeply as I smiled through happy tears. Thanks again for doing this incredible work and for your compassionate heart. It was so good to see Paul with his two new friends. He is so happy. He and the foals are very lucky to have one another.
From feral foals to foals in training, Anna shares her Reach Out to Horses methods with students from around the Globe as they gentle untouched foals rescued from the Canadian Slaughter houses. As a bi-product of the drug Premarin, these weanlings have found Sanctuary at Ray of Light Farms. Embarking on their week’s training, you can witness their progress. Haltered, saddle blankets (in prep for blanketing), picking up feet & their first steps….for those interested in learning more, the new 4-part DVD Foals in Training is scheduled to be launched January 2011.
Meet 5 very special PMU foals as they graduate from the Reach Out to Horses foals in training course at Ray of Light Farms, Connecticut. Just 6 days ago they were untouched youngsters uncertain if their first touch would represent their first experience to human exposure; where their numbers were shaved on their side and coggins taken without their permission. Now they willingly approach, accept touch, halters, blankets, having their feet cleaned & being lead around obstacle courses.
Anna created a rare opportunity for her students to gentle 5-month old PMU foals, destined for slaughter in Canada, they found their way to Ray of Light Farms. Within just 6 days, Anna was able to share her unique natural horsemanship methods with those sharing her passion. Now these foals are on their way to a brighter future and you can witness their graduation day. With tears in their eyes the students present “their” foals for you to share in the magical moments. The transformation is described as a miracle, please spread the word of compassionate communication.
