Hi everyone, it's so great to be back in your ears again. I have to tell you that I have been going through, and still am going through, one of the most difficult times of my life right now. I can't say too much publicly but I will put a video up under the paywall of Patreon so those who are subscribers can know what is going on. So if I'm a bit all over the place with getting a podcast up, please hang in there with me. It's not deliberate, just know I'm doing the best that I can right now.
I'd love to tell you about one of our wonderful patrons Peter Papp, Peter is a small business patron who gets his business promoted on every podcast and on my social media pages. Peter's business is Peter and the Herd. He works with equine behaviour and trauma recovery. Equine communication. Human and horse relationship building. Peter was kind enough to do a reading or communication session with my mare Gypsy, it was fantastic, he told me things that only I could understand and how Gypsy would like more fun in her life but she understands, so even when Peter had no idea what I was going through, he as able to give me a beautiful message from my girl that she does know what I'm going through and at the other side can we have some fun please? Peter was also able to speak to me about her pain and where it was happening, a few weeks later I had an osteo look over Gypsy and she confirmed what Peter said. So I can personally highly recommend Peter and his work. You can find Peter through his Facebook page Peter and the herd or his Instagram by the same name.
Our other small business patron is Belinda Daws from Journey Equine. Belinda is based on the Gold Coast and can travel to surrounding areas. Belinda is a Connection Training Coach who is calm, gentle and a very knowledgeable trainer, so much so that she is my trainer for me and my girls. To connect with Belinda get in touch with Belinda, I did and she is now mine and my horses coach. Belinda's website is journeyequine.com and you can find her on all the usual social Facebook, Instagram and twitter.

In this episode I speak with Caroline Ingraham who does something completely amazing it's called zoopharmacognosy, so what is that? Caroline will explain it much more eloquently than me but for now let me just say that it is something that is in the dna of all animals, domestic or otherwise and it is the ability for them to heal themselves through offering them plant extracts that would contain the same or similar constituents to those found in an animals natural environment.
This kind of work amazes me as this is how I believe we can make a huge difference in the lives of our horses, we just need to know how. This is a conversation not only about horses but also about a baby elephant Caroline was flown from the UK to help, and the way she helped was beautiful and the elephant made a full recovery.
So grab a cuppa enjoy the drive to your horses or wherever you are going or whatever you are doing and enjoy the amazing Caroline Ingraham
