Horse Chiropractic

For those of you tuning into my blog... I've had a special experience today, that I thought you'd love to hear about. My horse Kiele has been having problems turning his head... especially when I'm working him in the round pen. So being that I live in the middle of horse country.. they have Equine Chiropractors. Here's Dr. Reynolds adjusting the pelvic area of Kiele... his pelvis was rotated and the area whole area of his neck had four vertebra that were subluxated (out of alignment).

Here I am questioning everything he's doing to Kiele. When I get around horse people who know their stuff... I'm an endless trail of questions.

Here Doc is teaching me how to stretch the legs to help the alignment.

This part of the adjustment is so interesting... the Doc uses acupressure to get Kiele in a relaxed state. And I don't know if you can see it... but Kiele's tongue is hanging out. How funny is that!

Here Kiele is practically sleeping while standing up. 

 Amazing to say the least! 

Some people tell me that Chiropractic is useless... but animals have nothing to prove, they either get better or don't and after the adjustments he looked so good and he was holding his head up high. 

Last year Snoop our dog had a pinched nerve and his back and his legs were giving out on him. Dr. Reynolds came to our home and after two adjustments he was running around like he was a puppy.

Until Later,

Wild Horse Ministries

My girls and I had a night out last Friday and on the way to a beautiful farm in Franklin Tennessee, we wondered what we would find. I had heard about the Wild Horse Ministries and they use a horse to demonstrate the process of salvation. But I never imagined how amazing it would be.

Below is the opening ceremony...

Then the star of the show comes out. His name is Paul Daily and he's sold out on the Lord. He not only can break a horse... but he takes you through the process (narration) of becoming a Christian WHILE he's breaking the horse.  For example.. when he first gets the horse in the round pen, his only goal is to get control of the horse's feet by having him stop and turn direction. Next his wants the horse to stop and turn his head towards him. Paul say's that's what we have to do too... stop in our busy life and look towards Jesus. Every move the horse makes relates to our process of coming to Jesus. AMAZING to say the least..

Below is the last thing that Paul expects the horse to do. Lay down. Meaning, "Soldout for Christ".

Paul Daily and his family travel the US and operate on donations only. I hope you'll check out their website www.wildhorseministries.com.

Have a Java Day,
