other intuitive senses.

The Animal Communication Weekend
with International Animal Communicator Anna Twinney 
Friday, February 24th 
Saturday & Sunday, February 25 & 26, 2017 – 10am – 6pm
Animal Communication and the Rescued Animal
A rarely talked about or taught subject, Animal Communication can be a powerful aid and priceless support when working with rescued animals from the rescuer, rescue, through to the new foster home and adoptions; it’s effectiveness is dependent on the skill of the person(s) involved in the consultation.
Anna will share her extensive experience and expertise in the art of speaking with rescued animals. She will show you how to reach them, gain their trust, explore physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs and
resolve any confusion replacing it with clarity and a smooth transition into the next part of their lives.
Some of these precious beings come from horrible situations of abuse, abandonment, trauma, homelessness, death of a human or animal companion, or worse. You will learn how to use animal communication to support them, help them through the process of settling into their new home, at the rescue or finding their forever home with a new human companion. Giving a voice to the voiceless opens up a whole new world of possibility!
Animals as Our Soulmates

Have you Ever Wondered Why You Picked Your Animal Companion? The Answers may surprise you. Are you really sure you know who picked whom?
Join Anna on an exploration of connecting with your own animal’s/partners. Animal communication may be great for behavioral or health issues, but this journey will take you deeper into your relationship with your animal.
Why are they with you?
What challenges do they force you to face? Why?
What gifts have they given you?
What are the lessons they have come to teach you?

You might think that you are here for your animals but every companion, whether it be human or otherwise, has come into your life for a reason as well. Learn how to uncover the “why’s”, learn the lessons, and deepen your connection and relationship with your companions.

Discover the Soul Purpose and Connection for all your animals, and what they have come to share with you to help you fulfil your Destiny in this lifetime.

“Little Jack”

Come meet “Little Jack” this Sat. August 22nd noon to 3pm! A free will donation is being requested to help cover the cost of his gelding!Go to the pmr website by clicking on his picture for the ranch address and opportunity to donate. We thank you for the support as he is much needed on the property for protection from the predators lurking lately. we have seen the signs and heard the terrified horses. We have been warned!

Takota Update!
Takota lost his mother to a horrific shoulder injury upon arrival to PMR. Four mares and their foals were being shipped from Texas to Fallon, Nevada, where there they would await the slaughter truck. Why travel all the way to Nevada, when there are plenty of lots sending horses to Mexico for slaughter weekly?
Because big time breeders and ranchers do not want the public, especially their own clientele knowing of the henious behind-the-back-door events that happen all over America. 160,000 american horses went to slaughter in 2014.
Takota was lucky, and he is a survivor! You can see him at just 3 mos old, days after his mother was euthanized. One Step Closer Therapeutic Riding adopted him. Just look at him now! He is a stunning, willing, happy worker providing children in need with life changing experiences. We thank One Step Closer for his wonderful home and all our supporters who make our work possible!

Charmed by a horse: a skinny little colt that changed lives

Pulled from the Feedlot in Fallon, Nevada, a thin, wormy, bloody-legged paint mare was delivered to the Pregnant Mare Rescue in very rough shape. Terrified, untouchable, sporting a brand on her jaw (who does that?) Annie found her way to her new stall. Vet didn’t think she was in foal, but Lynn Hummer, the rescues founder was thinking differently.

Two months later this mare loved, supplemented and well fed delivered a skinny little colt. Charm indeed had arrived and was collecting the hearts of everyone he encountered.  From the moment I laid eyes on this little colt, I knew he had my heart too. It would take some work, but I was determined to adopt him and make this colt my own.

So, it’s no surprise that I was startled when Charm’s photo fell off my bedroom wall with a thud waking me that early Saturday morning. I startled awake and made sure the glass in the photo was not broken as I hung my sweet possession back on the wall. I was now up an hour early and figured I’d go to the PMR ranch and do morning chores.

I had had a couple of dreams of Charm, and in one dream a couple was taking him away and he “said” to me in the dream, I thought you were adopting me?  He seemed upset in the dream. I woke up with my heart pounding wondering at the deep effect this little horse had on me. Every time I looked into Charm’s gentle brown eyes I saw a wisdom, that was almost zen in its’ serenity.

When I arrived an hour early at the PMR ranch the eucalyptus swayed in the gentle morning breeze. I went up to the fence and called Charm’s name. Usually he would come trotting up to see if I had some pets or treats but this particular morning he stood still, his head hung low as I softly called his name. Then I saw it, blood, a lot of it. I leaped into the pasture to see if it was gushing or dripping when I realized it was dripping. I ran to the feed shed for the emergency phone tree. I ran, called the vet and pounded on Lynns’ door. She emerged sleepily and I shouted, “Charm! It’s Charm, he is hurt and it’s bad!” I ran back to Charm as Lynn got dressed to follow.

I whispered to Charm that a vet was coming and wrapped towels around the large open gaping wound. The pasture was quiet. Charm’s mom Annie, usually pinning her ears at anyone near her baby remained still as if she knew we meant to help.

We were all guessing at what had attacked our boy. Was the wound  from a coyote, a mountain lion, maybe dogs? Lynn knew she needed to find out, and she knew exactly who to call.

After the incident, Lynn put in an emergency call to Anna Twinney. Graciously and in such a timely manner Anna returned the call. Right then and there, Anna held a conversation with Charm. The generosity of this woman’s heart is so appreciated.

Charm expressed it was a big brown face with dark ears pointing straight up, and a dark blackened muzzle. Ok, no mountain lion. He shared that he felt responsible because he hesitates. (Remember he was born a shy, skinny little colt.) Anna reassured him that it was in no way his fault. Charm showed Anna the wound and she confirmed it was too large to be a coyote. There was a bite mark in the wound and a flap of skin and fur hanging. Anna continued to reassure the little colt that he had done nothing wrong, and sometimes bad things just happen

The last question Anna asked was to Lynn. “Is there anything else you’d like to ask Charm?”

Lynn wanted to know if there was anything he’d like to share. Charm responded, “They don’t know what they don’t know”

This little Zen boy struggling to survive is our little Budda.

I continued to hold Charm up and Lynn brought hay with more towels. We worried as he started going into shock. I used my weight to hold him up as he started to go down on one knee. I knew if he went down in the muddy pasture, it would be hard if not impossible to get him up.  Lynn and I held vigil holding him, talking to him, cajoling him with food.

The vet finally arrived. She immediately went to assess Charm’s condition. I asked bracing myself, “Will he be ok?” She looked at the wound with a solemn face and answered, “I don’t know.” Then she listened to his lungs, and thankfully they were clear. This was very good news, no puncture! We all pushed, and helped and finally got him down to a stall, slowly, after a long effort of helping this hurting baby.

Finally, she gave him the pain meds and started cleaning the wound, six hours later she completed the sutures. His side and front left leg looked like a sad, jagged, jigsaw puzzle of stitched flesh.

I went home and cried, praying for no infection, begging whatever higher source to allow Charm to stay on earth. The vet thought his leg would be ok if we could keep it clean and infection free. Lynn said she would fundraise for the vet bills and set up a website for him. I was determined to help anyway way I could.

Since I was a child I have had an affinity for animals of all types.  I rescued, cats, dogs, rabbits and horses through the years.  I do not consider myself an animal communicator but have had many unexplained experiences, dreams and intuitive feelings for different animals. I felt an affinity for Charm when I met him, much like love at first sight. Our connection remains strong today as I move toward getting into a financial position to adopt him.

Charm has recovered from his wound beautifully. He is getting stronger and looking better every day. On May 19th, Charm will be one year old and I am so pleased to know he has a full, beautiful life ahead. I thank Lynn for her dedication to her rescues, and I thank Anna for providing us with much needed answers and incredible insight in to the heart of Charm.
