I’ve always known my herd was not yet complete. When my mare, Promise, was pregnant I felt very strongly she was having twins. (Luckily for us both, I was wrong!) I considered naming her foal, Eclipse, but when the foal came it was clear her name was Journey.
Fast forward 4.5 months. I had a huge intuitive hit that I needed to pay attention to the ROTH Foal Gentling clinic being held by Anna Twinney in Bend, OR, in partnership with Warm Springs Horse Alliance who rescues native foals from the Warm Springs tribal land, for which I have a strong affinity. Perhaps in one of my many trips over the mountain where I greet the horses as part of ritual each time, I saw he and his herd roaming free before they were rounded up. This part I will never know.
When they named him Eclipse I just knew. That deep in your soul “YES” that won’t let go… The same feeling I had about Promise. The same feeling I had so many years ago with Legacy.
Eclipse is 4 months old just like Journey. Twins, sort of. I knew I had a feeling and I was right. The Universe just planned it far more perfectly. It always does.
