In Between Rescuing

0

You need good coffee!

Soon, very soon it’s time to bring home the two horses that we are rescuing from southern Italy.

I am so excited! Two beautiful souls that are going to have their well deserved retirement!

Follow, and you will see what I mean!

Busy Cleaning Weekend

0

Our two big cages with two different Rat Families were being cleaned.

It’s a big job and my daughter were playing with the rats while me, her mom, were doing the dirty job.

They are hilarious these rats. Climbing like skilled mountain climbers.

All five are adopted!

Cleaning for Bob and Cass

We rescued two amazing Bearded Dragons. American family returning back home after some years here in Europe.

They came to our home, AWL Sanctuary.

When cleaning their home they are using me as their climbing tree!

That’s Amore!

Welcome Hope to our Sanctuary

I found her in the mouth of a dog. Actually the dog was great spitting the bird out when I shouted. The dog walked away, and I picked up a wounded Hope. That’s what my daughter named her. Hope….we have hope that the bird will be fine.

I brought her into our Sanctuary– it starting to get crowded.

She stopped bleeding but her wing and one foot is not healed. My daughter feeds her live worms and today I found out that she slept under Olivia’s blanket (together)

That’s Amore!

We got a New Client

In my home it’s me who brings home wounded or/and homeless animals. Not my children!

Not that they wouldn’t do it, there is no chance I find them first.

However, I am very proud over my children (12 and 10 y) they have become wonderful animal friends. Carrying and showing empathy to both humans and animals.

We welcome Hope into our Animal Sanctuary! We hope you will heal and feel comfortable here!

That’s Amore!

We are with Rats–Again

This is their amazing home that came with them. We are honoured that the family trusts us to take care of them. Butter, Pringle and Samantha Welcome to your new home.

We already love you, and hope you will feel at home right away.

The middle picture; is a dumbo rat.

First and third pictures are; attic rats.

They are amazing sweet and such a cuddle bugs. I never in my whole life thought I would be so in love with rats.

That’s Amore!

Horses as Teachers

0

Since 1997 hade I been working with horses in many different countries. I never trained the horse, I trained the humans (owners and groomers) how to get more out from your horse. (And yourself)

Psychology, health, training, competitions, but mostly, communication between each other.

When the horse becomes a machine, and the horse only “stands” there, the danger have occurred.

His spirit is “locked down”! You will never become a better rider (owner) when you stop listening to your beloved team mate.

One groomer put her horse carrots on the ground outside his open box.

He saw them and it was a delightful temptation for him.

Other Horses with their groomers walked by. The horse with his carrots without reach, put his ears back and threaten the passing horses.

He looked like a crazy horse! Evil!

I could see why, but the others didn’t understand him.

The groomer got irritated and slapped him, not ones, but three times, hard in his face.

This is what I teach. The small signs the Animals shows us, the small communication that gives us the big picture. To become a better teammate.

Animals don’t judge. They are actually our teachers and I, am only the translator! It is difficult not to judge, that is why I admire Animals.

We humans, will always be students our whole life!

That’s Amore!
