An Interview with Anna about Animal Communication in Costa Rica

 

One of the many benefits of working as an Animal Communicator is lending one’s services at rescues and rehabilitation facilities. In Costa Rica, Anna partnered with Kids Saving the Rainforest to connect with some very unique souls who were offered a voice as to their wishes, perceived setbacks or limitations, and in order to bring clarity to their full rehabilitation process. Vickie Wickhorst of the Colorado Sage Learning Center interviews Anna about the once-in-a-lifetime experience upon her return.

In Partnership with Horses as Healers

Equine Facilitated Learning or Equine Facilitated Therapy is a vast ocean of nuances and subtleties. What means something to one person might be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood by another. We can’t really assess a horse to see if they would be as a therapy horse and Anna Twinney (founder of Reach Out to Horses and life coach for over 30 years) explains why in this lecture at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. She also goes into how we can support our therapy and coaching horses to make sure that the exchange is not a one-way transaction of them only supporting us.

An Endangered Species Returns Home on Earth Day- Meet Django, the Costa Rican Jaguarundi

“I had the most amazing week, culminating with the best 2 second experience ever.

I was driving on the 2-lane highway when I saw a wild cat, a jaguarundi, lying in the middle of the road.  I stopped traffic both ways while our vet and a biologist brought him to the side of the road, palpating him to see if anything was broken.

Django.jpg

Unable to obtain a box, we put him, unconscious, on a cardboard stretcher, and our vet rode in the backseat with him while I drove to the closest vet clinic.  As we arrived, I hit a pothole, the jaguarundi came to, jumping wildly into the trunk.

It took 2 vets to contain him and get him out.

It was apparent that he had been hit by a car so he was driven 1 ½ hours for exams and xrays.

Such a miracle, no broken bones!

He needed to recuperate from the accident and eat before we could release him.

For 5 days we couldn’t get him to eat anything.

7

Inspiration struck, maybe if we fed him live animals he would eat. Jaguarundis are in danger of extinction so we had to try it.

We moved him into a large enclosure where he felt safer because he had a place to hide under this crate.

Finally, on Earth Day, we knew he was strong enough to go back to the wild without becoming prey.

We took him back to the location where we found him, making sure he was way off the highway.

When releasing him we didn’t know what would happen.  He was an amazing sight, he moved so fast he was a blur! Those were the most amazing 2 seconds of my life!  He was wild and free again, as nature intended!”

Animal Communication to the Jaguarundi Rescue!

Anna was called upon to do an animal communciation session with him early on to help assess the damage and to support his journey.  The following is from her communication with Jennifer:

“Hoping your boy is doing a little better today, Jennifer.

Immediately I felt the need to activate Reiki; energy healing and have this run the whole time throughout my connection.  It seems he needs the energy the most in order to be supportive of his whole situation.  Man-induced and surprised are sensations that are forthcoming.  Extreme discomfort and extreme distrust rule.  He isn’t connecting the same as all of your others with great details, intention, forthcoming, willingness and understanding of the situation.  Instead, he feels very leery of what is possible and guarded, even mistrusting of all.    All of your others understood the possibilities through animal communication and were definitely strong in their connections.

He once roamed, I believe, and obviously no longer does.  In and out of this conversation, not holding any strength.  His connection is weak and his ability to connect is reflected evenly so.  I realize he is on the small size, frightened, concerned, in discomfort.  He shows himself at the rescue and although in good hands, he’s unable to surrender.

There are no clear answers.  Weak is what comes forward.  A lack of life, listless.  Confused, concerned, worries.  Scared, frightened, mistrusting.  Low energy, low life force.  The main piece that comes through is extreme discomfort which is man-induced.

With energy running it is questionable how this little fellow is doing.  He doesn’t show any enclosure, or running around.  He doesn’t show that he is picking up.  Instead, there is no clarity around his situation.  However, it all feels to be internal and not external.  A bit of a mystery.   Not sure he is expecting to make it through.  I do not feel a blockage, nor external damage.  More like an internal situation that he may not even be able to explain.  Feels like he has lost all appetite and realizes he needs this for survival.  Feels like pain, discomfort and no ability to process food.  He doesn’t show bleeding or any fluids leaking from his body.  He shoes confusion.  It’s happening to him…his mind remains clear, his body is reacting.

I’m letting him know he remains in good hands.  That veterinary care is there and all are doing all they can to help him through.  Sending copious amounts of energy and will include my private group into the mix for additional healing powers.

Please let me know how he does.

Hugs from here…wish I could be of more help.”

Jennifer:

“You are spot on!  Everything you said is accurate.   HE ATE!!  I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO RELIEVED IN MY LIFE.”

The First Hello

Coal was gathered from the Little Book Cliffs in October of 2018, recently brought to the BLM holding facility and onto auction. His first impressions with humans was unkind; losing his herd, home, and identity. He was adopted on Saturday, by a young lady named Jade, making her dreams come true. This was Coal’s first gentling session with Anna, his first hello and first impression. Less is more in the beginning. Quiet confidence while communicating with a gentle purpose are a few of the key elements to your relationship with a Mustang. “If you ever have the opportunity to spend a day with Anna Twinney, please do. When it comes to connecting with Mustangs she’s one of the very best.”

~ George Brauneis

Mustang Demo with Jade and Cole and Anna

Above, Anna instructs Jade with regards to the Mustang’s unique Language.

Watch below the video of Anna saying Hello to Coal for the first time.  Simply click on the video to watch.

Read the story of how Jade met Coal and the lengths she went to to bring him home with her in this article in The Daily Sentinel:

“During a hike with her grandmother in the Little Book Cliffs last March, Jade Walker caught sight of a magnificent wild horse — a blue-gray beauty with black marks and a long black mane.

The girl was thrilled when the horse came toward her a ways over a small hill. She, in turn, followed him back.

“I think we have a connection somewhere,” Jade said Saturday as the Mustang waited nearby in a pen with other wild horses.”

This is NOT a Rehearsal. This is NOT a Show. Let the Mustang Demonstration Begin!

We arrived with just 10 minutes to spare having driven over 5 1/2 hours through fog, rain, snow, sleet, and hail to get to Grand Junction, CO, in time to support the Mustangs at the auction and particularly Friends of Horses & Steadfast Steeds with Tracy Harmon Scott and George Brauneis who work hard to give these amazing horses voices and homes.

Follow along for the live streaming of these wild horse 🐎 demonstrations. Part 1 of 4  and catch up on all of the valuable information in these demos that you might have missed.

This is not a rehearsal, this is not a show. It’s live from CO! We have never met before and the demonstration begins!

Many mustangs adapt to life away from the range and some find a way to cope. Imagine knowing just how to reignite their spark and to encourage them to wake up – to find a new identity. That’s where I come in. Bringing 20 years of wild horse gentling to them as I recognize the position they find themselves in and offer a chance of expression and understanding.

Shout out to Lani Salisbury and Jill Haase for joining the ROTH team this afternoon. What true troopers they are. Dedication personified.

Ongoing appreciation for George Brauneis and Tracy Harmon Scott for inviting me to join them at this event in support of the Mustangs.

DIE, PONY, DIE –

TRNP (Theodore Roosevelt National Park) Wild Horse Management Plan

For the last 40 years, Leo and Frank Kuntz have been involved in helping to preserve a historically genetic and threatened type of horse, the Nokota®, the horse of the Northern Plains natives. There are less than a thousand of this type of horse alive today.

This horse was a gift to the Plains natives from their creator. The horse pulled their travois, the buffalo horse was for hunting, and the most prized was the war horse, the fastest and strongest.

During the mid-1800s, policy was to destroy everything when the military took a village. Homes, clothing and food were burned and many of their horses were shot or their throats slit.

Even after the natives were put on reservations, the cavalry was sent in to round-up the native type horse under the premise they were carrying disease and either shoot them or sent them to auction.

This type of horse was in the TRNP when it was fenced in the early 1950s. Park policy then became total elimination of the horses in the Park. Box canyon type round-ups were attempted, with little success; hay was poisoned and fed; local ranchers were hired to rope some and others were shot.

Fortunately, some local residents and others asked ND congressional delegates in DC to help. The TRNP decided to keep the horses as a historical demonstration herd.

This all changed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. TRNP superintendent Harvey Wickware made the decision to change the geno- and phenotype of the wild horse herd. They introduced domestic studs (quarter horse, shire-cross, and an Arabian) who could not compete with the wild native studs to keep and maintain a mare band. So policy became the removal of the Native wild studs, allowing the introduced domestic studs to make an impact on the herd. They did this by using helicopters and outriders to roundup the wild horses. Their first attempt in the early 1980s was a total disaster. They lost a number of horses running long distances in the heat.

During subsequent roundups, the TRNP targeted the native type studs and lead mares. At the 1986 roundup, Leo and Frank Kuntz purchased 52 head at the TRNP wild horse auction. There they also met Castle McLaughlin, who at the time was working as an intern with the TRNP, and who in 1987 was given a grant to research the history of the wild horses in TRNP, which was funded in part by a grant from the Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association. Dr. Castle McLaughlin is currently associate curator of North American ethnography at Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.

Her chronicled research showed that the wild horses in TRNP were descended from the Northern Plains natives and the turn of the century ranch horses, with strong historical connections to Sitting Bull and his sub chiefs, the Marquis deMores (founder of the town of Medora, ND), Theodore Roosevelt (rancher in western ND and US President), and AC Huidekoper (who ran the largest horse ranch in the world at one time near Amidon, ND). In the 1991 TRNP roundup, The Kuntz brothers were successful at getting the national park to start blood testing their horses and to take out the introduced domestic studs, but what the TRNP didn’t tell people was that most of the shire cross’ offspring were left in the Park. It was suggested that inbreeding could become a problem with the response being that they knew what they were doing.

Blood work was done only on horses that were being sold. The TRNP sold 62 head of horses and the brothers bought 11 that were the old native type.

The blood was sent to Dr. Gus Cothran at the University of Kentucky. There were 10 horses he called TRNP old-line, adding that they were “extremely divergent” from any other domestic breed.

In 2009, the TRNP started using an experimental contraceptive drug called GonaCon, requiring a yearly injection to prevent pregnancy. They began to study the herd to see what effects the drug was having regarding social structure. The study’s credibility is questionable.

The TRNPs last 40 years of ‘management’ (or mismanagement as it were) has resulted in a horse herd with less genetic diversity and the changing of a historically correct geno- and phenotype horse, as well as culling the younger horses which will result in an older herd dying off of old age, especially with the continued use of the experimental drug GonaCon.

In a report called Genetic diversity and origin of the feral horses in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, published on Aug 1, 2018, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0200795, it states, “It is recommended that new genetic stock be introduced and that adaptive management principles are employed to ensure that unique mitochondrial lineages are preserved and genetic diversity is increased and maintained over time”.

This is a national park. They should NOT be breeding into extinction a genetically, historically correct horse.  There is a need for an interpretive center on the horses, and the slow reintroduction of the Nokota® horses back into the TRNP.

Now is the time for the TRNP to do their job … and their job is to do what is right!  The TRNP should reintroduce the type of horse that was there before and when the park was fenced, which is the Nokota® horse.

It is time to acknowledge the Northern Plains people’s history, horses, and horse culture. The Native peoples’ unique history and culture is a very important part of this Nation’s history.

The Nokota® horses need your help. Please contact Blake McCann, TRNP Wildlife Biologist at blake@nps.gov and Superintendent Wendy Ross at (701) 623-4466 and ask them to do what is right for the horses.
